Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus (Origami Yoda) Reviews
If you are familiar with the previous Origami Yoda books, you probably don’t need this review, because this book is more of the same. All I can say is that, in my opinion, the quality doesn’t decline in the way it does in some other series. The other thing you want to make sure you are aware of is that this particular book is kind of a series within a series. Whereas the other Origami Yoda books have their own unique story arcs, this one and Princess Labelmaker are more like two parts to one larger book.
Okay, moms and dads, although the idea of a pickle puppet is disgusting, this book, as all the Origami Yoda books, still has what it takes to keep my kid, and me, wanting to keep reading. It's maybe not my favorite, and feels generally less "enthusiastic" as the others, but it may be simply because the funtime storyline has been resolved and the conflicts are a little different. It's basically about all of the shenanigans that the kids get into on the bus and during the field trip that they lobbied so hard for in the previous books. I think this may be the last in the series, which kind of makes us sad, but it is wrapped up nicely.
This was a great final installment in the Origami Yoda series, even if it made me sad to see it end. Mr. Angleberger has written a wonderful, funny, and altogether memorable series about a bunch of kids and their origami Star Wars guys and all the wisdom their origami creations give them. I like how the kids in this book go to Washington DC, and also how they creatively break the NO ORIGAMI! rule, while not breaking it. For a Star Wars geek who does origami in his spare time, this series is the jackpot for me! Tommy is a great main character. I love how he handles situations. All the kids in the book seem very realistic to me. This was a great ending to an AWESOME series!
I was dreading this book.
My 9 year old has read every book in this series - more than once. Once he picks one of them up - even after multiple readings - he will not put it down. Not even to watch Minecraft videos on YouTube. And, even better, he's engaged not only with the characters and the story but the art. He's turned into an origami-folding genius. We have little paper Yodas, Han Foldos and the little bear dudes all over the house. The series make for great book reports for school, too, as you have ready-to-make props. Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus is meant to be the last book in the series - and when he finished it, he was deeply, deeply disappointed that the series had come to an end. He's still hoping there will be another. (I am too - because while my kid is a passionate reader, few books have ever made him read like this.)
my son is a huge fan of this series and he is sad to see it end. The book doesnt disappoint, its just like the others ones. I just wish that it was more about the storyline and downplayed the origami projects inside a little more. Your kids will like it but if you plan on having them read it for school, make them do it in your area of supervision because otherwise the games inside might distract them
My kids love this series. Engaging and gets their imaginations going.
It's so good to find books that kids love to read and reread that are quality books. This whole series is creative and funny. All three of my kids have enjoyed them so they can appeal to a wide age audience. Recommend that you get them for your kids.
