On August 8th, David Etkin and Brent Peterson hosted a book birthday party at Sweet Home Middle School in Amherst, NY. They were celebrating the birthday of the third book in the Origami Yoda series, The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee by Tom Angleberger. Fortunately for them, the Fortune Wookiee himself and Han Foldo were on hand to witness the event. They were nice enough to describe what happened.
A couple videos of the fun….
Here is a HUGE slideshow of the WOOKIEE Birthday Party. We didn’t want to leave anyone out.
We would like to thank everyone involved in helping to make this book birthday party a success. First and foremost, thank you to Tom Angleberger, Mr. @OrigamiYoda himself.
