In one of the more unusual bits of Star Wars licensing news comes the Tom Angleberger novel The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. The story is aimed at the pre-teen set and tells of a class nerd who starts predicting events and spouting wisdom from a paper Yoda finger puppet. His channeling of the Jedi master Yoda is so eerily accurate that classmates start to suspect he's actually in tune with The Force.

It's a clever idea, and if this book had come out when I was in the sixth grade, it would've been a must-read. I'm kind of hoping the book translates well to film -- ss an adult, I'd see the movie for sure. The book will be released the March, but you can pre-order it now on Amazon.
