Back in 2005, Tom Angleberger read a post I put up here about Fukiami Kawahata's origami Yoda pattern. The post sparked an idea for a kid's book: The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, which Lucas greenlit and Angleberger published with Amulet Books, to stellar reviews. Tom adds: "The book's about a kid who folds his own Origami Yoda and takes it to school to give other kids advice. The kid is clueless, but Origami Yoda speaks with great wisdom. (Yes, believe it or not, Lucasfilm gave us permission for all of this and even allowed Star Wars doodles in the book.)"
