Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus by Tom Angleberger
Origami Yoda Book 6
The seventh graders at McQuarrie Middle School have embarked on their long awaited field trip to Washington, DC. Cell phones and origami puppets have been banned by the principal but you can't truly stop a determined teen so of course hijinks ensue with a lengthy battle between the forces of light and dark via puppets made from what is at hand. A surprise twist at the end brings back the spectre of this series' version of the Empire, standardized testing.
