I think the book is better then the movie because it have more specific details and events the the movie.I really liked the book because it was more intensive then the movie.I would recommend this book to middle schooler but it may take over a month to finish the book because there is 487 pages.

The strange case of origami yoda by Tom Angleberger

The Strange Case of Origami Yoda - Tom Angleberger

In this funny, uncannily wise portrait of the dynamics of a sixth-grade class and of the greatness that sometimes comes in unlikely packages, Dwight, a loser, talks to his classmates via an origami finger puppet of Yoda. If that weren’t strange enough, the puppet is uncannily wise and prescient. Origami Yoda predicts the date of a pop quiz, guesses who stole the classroom Shakespeare bust, and saves a classmate from popularity-crushing embarrassment with some well-timed advice. Dwight’s classmate Tommy wonders how Yoda can be so smart when Dwight himself is so clueless. With contributions from his puzzled classmates, Tommy assembles this first case file in the blockbuster bestselling Origami Yoda series.The climax of this book is when Harvey and Dwight have the face off of which origami Yoda is the real wise Jedi! Climax The setting takes place in a school named, McQuarrie Middle School in around 2009.The theme of this story is "it's okay to be original" and "believe in yourself."


What I liked about the book is that everything can happen, like from a loser and weirdo can dance with a girl and be her girlfriend or getting away of immense of trouble and the lastly but not least I liked how the ending was where everybody was happy and Harvey who didn't believe to origami Yoda got humiliated by Dwight which was a loser.Something that I didn't like is that the drawing of the faces where kinda creepy and weird.One question that I have about the book is that it didn't tell how origami Yoda or Dwight could have predict the future.I would recommend this book especially middle schoolers like 6th graders.

Naruto V1: Naruto Uzumaki by Mashashi Kishimoto

Naruto, Vol. 1: The Tests of the Ninja - Masashi Kishimoto

For the first twelve years of his life, Naruto Uzumaki had to live a life without parents and endure the apparent unsolicited hate from the villagers of Konohagakure, never knowing what it was like to be loved or have friends as a result. One day, however, he learns from the covert ninja Mizuki that the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox was sealed within him soon after his birth and is the reason he is alone in the world. After this, Naruto's fortunes begin to change. In addition to finding a father-figure in Iruka Umino after defeating Mizuki, Naruto achieves his dream by finally becoming a ninja, his ultimate desire being to become the greatest in Konoha, the Hokage. In doing so, Naruto is added to Team 7 along with Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno under the leadership of Kakashi Hatake. To see whether or not the three are ready to become ninja, Kakashi administers a test to see if they have what it takes. Each fails independently, leading Kakashi to believe they will never become ninja.


What I think about this book is that is really funny and interesting because I really like the story conflict and the characters of the story.What I don't like is that why would Minato seal the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox on his son, I mean, I know that he sealed half of the Demon soul on him but at least he could have sealed it to Kushina because she will die, they thought Naruto will be presented as a hero but he it didn't. I don't really have any question about the manga because I already watched the series so I know everything.I would recommend this book and the others volumes too to people that like manga because I really like to read manga too, but I prefer watching the episodes of the series.

I really liked the book because like how the story was at the start of the story and the characters because it's making connections and i liked how climax of the book. I don't really liked the last part which is about Scar was chased by enemy and then he got save by some peoples because I don't really understand what happened. Yes, I would recommend the book but first its better to read the first volume because it's a little confusing.
