The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee (Anglais) Relié – 1 août 2012
Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
With his proven knack for humorously exploring the intrigues, fads, and dramas of middle school, Tom Angleberger has crafted a worthy follow-up to his breakout bestsellers "The Strange Case of Origami Yoda" and "Darth Paper Strikes Back."
Praise for "The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee"
"Angleberger's third in the series continues the fun. A chorus of spot-on middle school voices and plenty of laughs are wrapped around this tale of friendship and seasoned with Star Wars references."
--"Kirkus Reviews," starred review
"Tom Angleberger offers a hilarious third book in his best-selling series starring origami "Star Wars" characters. Angleberger's grasp of middle-school emotions, humor and behavior is spot-on, and parents who want to get a sense of what it's like be a preteen these days might consider reading this book. But you'll likely have to pry it out of your young reader's hands first."
--"Scripps Howard News Service"

Anyway, I just finished this book tonight with my daughter and we are already looking forward to the next installment, Art2-D2 coming March 2013.
So what's the theology skinny on these books?
Theology: Look to the force you should
God is not discussed in any way, shape, or form in these novels. The kids look to these origami characters for advice, some might consider it prophesy or fortune telling (I don't personally). So some parents might have concerns. If you're the kind of parent that didn't want your kids to read Harry Potter because it was about witchcraft, then you probably won't like these books for your kids either. But we're not talking ouija boards or the occult here, we're talking about a creative expression of kid wisdom. It's a fun read with a lot of Star Wars references, and I don't worry that my daughter is going to seek spiritual guidance from folded paper. Don't take it from me, read it and decide for yourself if you're worried.
The only profanity looks like this - #$%&!!!. Good, family friendly fun. Nothing to worry about.
The themes in this book are individualism vs. conformity. Acceptance for who you are, not who people think you are. There is some fun poked at ridiculous school administration initiatives and teachers that don't `get it.' The library is the only cool place to hang out (because the librarian is cool, of course).
This is the third book in a series. So you might want to check out the first two before you read this one. They are all good reads. And with origami instructions at the back of the books, how can you go wrong?
The "Case File" style of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper is back in this book, along with the superb illustrations... but what is mostly missing is Dwight! His absence forms the underlying tension in the book... and there's almost certain to be a Book 4, so color me Breathless with anticipation. Lando Cal-Crease-ian? Luke Skyfolder?
In this book, you not only get the Fortune Wookiee, but you get Han Foldo as well. Love it.
Parent Note: One very bright note in this book is the absence of most of the bad language from "Origami Yoda." Almost all the bad language that *could* have been in the story has been replaced with ridiculous replacement words... for example: WTS (what the spaghetti?), [bleep-bleep], WTF (what the Fett -- with a little picture of Boba Fett...), Bantha dung. I have a familyof boys. These words walk right on that edge of forbidden words... but they are far enough on the safe side that I can relax and let my big kids read the book, not worrying that the littler children will pick up and repeat Words-We-Do-Not-Say-Around-Here.
There remain terms we don't use: "You idiot" and "My stupid brother" and "it sucks" (said by a teacher!) and "snot...". The big kids can handle a do-not-repeat warning, and they can enjoy a Stooky novel full of stookiness.

I think one of the things that shines through in this series of books is the fact that everyone is different and that's okay. In fact life would be very boring if everyone was the same, people like Dwight add spice to the world, as Tommy and his friends discover in this book. By the time the book is over, I wanted Dwight back with all his idiosyncrasies. If you enjoy books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Dork Diaries you will most likely like this book also.
