When I first saw this series, I had low expectations. I started reading these books over the summer and was pleasantly surprised. Each book features a character from Star Wars made out of origami. One of the characters in the book uses it as a finger puppet to answer the questions posed by other characters. The problems these students have are typical of ten to thirteen-year-olds. When they follow the advice these finger puppets dispense, problems are solved somewhat unexpectedly.
Update June 2014: Here is a free worksheet for students to analyze an event in the story from multiple points of view.
