Diary of a Wimpy Kid - The Last Straw by Jeff Kinney

Book Description

"The highly anticipated third book in the critically acclaimed and bestselling series takes the art of being wimpy to a whole new level. "Let s face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Somebody just needs to explain that to Greg s father. You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other manly endeavors. Of course, Greg is able to easily sidestep his father s efforts to change him. But when Greg s dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get shipped out.Greg and his family and friends, who make the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid "books a must-read for middle school readers, are back and at their best in this hilarious new installment of the series, which is sure to please current fans while attracting new ones."Publishers Weekly"-1/19/2009: The third book in this genre-busting series is certain to enlarge Kinney s presence on the bestseller lists, where the previous titles have taken up residence for the past two years. Kinney s spot-on humor and winning formula of deadpan text set against cartoons are back in full force. This time, Greg starts off on New Year s Day (he resolves to help "other" people improve, telling his mother, I think you should work on chewing your potato chips more quietly ) and ends with summer vacation. As he fends off his father s attempts to make him more of a man (the threat of military school looms), Greg s hapless adventures include handing out anonymous valentines expressing his true feelings ( Dear James, You smell ), attempting to impress his classmate Holly and single-handedly wrecking his soccer team s perfect season. Kinney allows himself some insider humor as well, with Greg noting the racket children s book authors have going. All you have to do is make up a character with a snappy name, and then make sure the character learns a lesson at the end of the book. Greg, self-centered as ever, may be the exception proving that rule. Ages 812. "(Jan.)"""F&P level: T"

Long Haul by Jeff Kinney Long Haul, Paperback (January 2016)

A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun ...unless, of course, you're the Heffleys. The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, a fender bender, and a runaway pig - not exactly Greg Heffley's idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure...

Book Review: Diary of a Wimpy Kid - The Last Straw by Jeff Kinney - Reviewed by (08 Jun 2013)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid book three The Last straw is as entertaining as the previous but probably not as good.

The book doesn’t really break any new ground, Greg Heffley is trying to get attention of the forth best looking girl at his school, meanwhile Greg’s father is threatening to send him off to military camp. There is allot going in this book and nothing happening.

The fun part of this book, as the others, is the interactions between Greg and his older brother Roderick. The chemistry is really amusing. Overall a fun book and if you are a fan of the series you will enjoy.
