The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppet by Tom Angelberger
An Origami Yoda Book
The kids from the previous Origami Yoda books now face their deadliest enemy, the Funtime Education System. Funtime is a satirical take on the trend of "teaching to the test" so schools stay accredited by scoring well on standardized tests. The kids ask Yoda for advice and are told to form a Rebel Alliance to disrupt the testing process so things can go back to normal. The story is told from a variety of perspectives and has accompanying drawings. This isn't the best of the series but any fan of Star Wars will still have fun reading it.
