It's the fourth book in the mega-hit Origami Yoda series! In The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett, Dwight and Origami Yoda return to McQuarrie Middle School—and not a moment too soon. The gang needs their help fighting a new and powerful enemy: the Funtime Menace, a diabolical test-prep service. This bestselling series showcases Tom Angleberger, author of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi: Beware the Power of the Dark Side, and his keen knack for authentically capturing the intrigues, fads, and dramas of middle school in “satisfying tale[s] of friendship and just resistance to authority” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

This hilarious, highly original series, which so astutely captures the odd preoccupations of middle schoolers, will appeal to the many fans of the Origami Yoda series and such gross-out classics as How to Eat Fried Worms and Freckle Juice. Lyle Hertzog and his friends Marilla and Dave expect to spend another dull holiday passing time at the local Qwikpick convenience store. Then an article in their hometown paper catches their eye—the sludge fountain at the nearby sewage plant is being retired. With this news, the three friends decide they’re not just normal kids who don’t have Christmas plans: they’re the Qwikpick Adventure Society. Their first mission: to see the “poop fountain” before it fades from glory. Told with the mix of journal entries, doodles, and handwritten notes that has made the Origami Yoda books so appealing, this is another great series from a master chronicler of middle school. Praise for The Qwikpick Papers "Laugh-out-loud high jinks tailormade for reluctant readers. A hilarious and well- designed update." --School Library Journal Summer 2014 Kids' Indie Next List

They’ve done it. Break into an abandoned research facility to spot a rat with a human face? Check. But their third exploit just might be their most daring yet. Local legend has it that a slave master was buried standing up in the plantation’s family tomb. Why? So that he could continue overseeing his slaves—even in death!
