You Will Call Me Drog by Sue Cowing
This is a cute book for children in grades 4-6 or so. Parker, a 6th grader picks up a hand puppet that he finds at the dump and puts it on and it talks to him and tells him that it's name is Drog and it will not let him remove it.
So, Parker spends several months with the puppet on his hand, which causes some problems and he is sent to counseling and starts attending aikido lessons.
He starts to work out some of the problems that he has with his father, who had divorced his mom and moved out several years before.
Parker learns some lessons from Drog and from his aikido Sensei.
