Tom Angleberger - Origami Yoda
Tom Angleberger is the author/illustrator of the wildly popular "Origami Yoda" books. Prior to becoming an author/illustrator, Tom describes his occupations as, "newspaper reporter and columnist, juggler, weed boy, lawn mower part assembler, biology research assistant (bug larvae and plant diseases).
Tom says: “I’m not necessarily all that creative. I’m more of a puzzle putter together. I take all these little puzzle pieces — Yoda, middle school problems, Cheetos — and I fuss and fuss with them until I fit them together.”
His latest book, with his wife, Cece Bell, is Crankee Doodle.
