    I never tire of this series I just think the humor is so right on I read often that the book appeals to reluctant readers and I would seriously challenge that It appeals to ALL readers in fifth grade Let's face it we were all a Greg Heffley in fifth grade Unless of course you were a Rowley in which case I am very sorry There was a part that had me seriously laughing so hard I am not giving anything away here it will just be much funnier when you read it yourself Greg had gone to a sleep over with Rowley The sleep over was at a friend of Rowley's house If you know Rowley you will know he has many friends who are not his age euivalent but his mental euivalent Greg said at one point the kids at the party suggested playing a game called Who Licked Me? I mean come on that is funny Okay maybe in a slightly less mature worldI suspect my students will soon be calling each other Ploopy just as they were all giving the Cheese Touch One of my favorite story lines in the book was about Manny's Tingy Can't decide if Ploopy is a compliment or not? Don't know what a Tingy is? Well I guess you'll have to pick up the book

    The wimpy kid books never fail to make me laugh Kinney has a great sense of comic timing in these books and the pictures really do make the story what it isWhat bothers me about these books is the main character's attitude and the way he treats others I hope that kids see that the reason Greg gets himself into trouble all the time is because of his attitude Instead of looking up to him it's my hope that kids who read this book say Man if Greg just treated people with a little respect then maybe he wouldn't always get himself into these bad situationsI've said it in other reviews of these books before but I'll say it again I don't think Greg's physiue is wimpy; I think his character is

    This book should be denominated Diary of a Wimpy FATHER Greg's dad is silly dumb and has no authority on his children

    Every once in a while you need a break from wizard boys sparkling vampires conspiracy theories go nowhere love stories end of the world page turners and the never ending stream of parallel worldsEvery once in a while you need to forget that you are a full blown adult whose literary tastes are mature and discerning and who to put it mildly is a bit up yourselfEvery once in a while you need to escape into the world of a Wimpy middle school Kid who is high on smarts and low on luckIt’s time to hold your breath over the unwashed clothes and dodge the well meaning parents and stumble over the boogers as you venture into the world of Greg HeffleyGreg Heffley’s astounding schemes and eually mind boggling failures continue His chief bête noire in this book is his long suffering dad Greg’s father wants to make a man out of his dandelion blowing son To achieve this admirable goal he is intent on sending Greg off to a military academy This doesn’t sit well with MrWimpy who was looking forward to a summer of playing video games and sleepingsnarfing down junk food and sleepinghooking up with the pretty Holly Hills and yep catching up on some sleepThe Wimpy Kid series may be considered juvenile and trite But it’s entertaining and you read it with a constant smile playing on your lips Sometimes you even snort with glee well I did I say regardless of your agepick it up for some instant laughs dry humour and a cast of characters that is so unbelievably well put together that you can’t help but stay hooked

    Greg Heffley continues with his hilarious journal It seems that he has now become accustomed to writing it because there are no gripes about that in this book Or maybe it is because he has much serious things to worry about like the school soccer team and military schoolDad is determined to make a man out of Greg Greg is uite happy to stay a wimp playing with the latest video games and trying to impress the beautiful Holly Hills However being the kind of person he is Greg finds it difficult to attack the problem outright The only method open to him is subterfugeTwo thirds of the book recounts Greg's ineffectual attempts to get out of the soccer team and his eually ineffectual attempts to befriend Holly Hills He uses Rowley uite shamelessly whenever he feels it would give him an advantage however Rowley almost always comes out on top without even trying We cannot blame Greg for feeling that life is unfair to himTowards the last third soccer moves to the backstage as military school moves into the limelight Dad sees the wonders it has done for teenage troublemaker in the neighbourhood if it can work so well on a hooligan what will it not do for a good boy? Greg is in immediate danger of being sent to boot camp for his summer holidays None of his stratagems like joining the Boy Scouts seems to have any effect in forestalling the inevitableHowever fate takes a hand and Greg escapes by a hair's breadth How that happens is narrated in his own inimitable way by Jeff Kinney and is the highlight of the book It is guaranteed to leave you in stitchesIn this novel we see Greg slowly forming a bond with his Dad who we find is not very different from his son It is uite possible that Greg will grow up to be just like his father And for a change the novel ends on a happy note because Greg has run out of pages immediately after being befriended by the gorgeous Trista the new girl in the neighbourhood And we are also happy because despite all his cowardly traits Greg Heffley is a lovable kid As humorous and warm as the first two books highly recommended

    35 StarsI read this one with my nine year old brother He is such a big fan of the series and i always enjoy reading by his sideThis series is a highly entertaining collection of books that offer much laugh but notably not much educationally speakingThat is not such a big deal if you know exactly why you are reading a book There are not all of them about inspiration and highly profound meanings Some plain simple fun is well needed too and those books will provide just thatMaybe if you give it some thought though you might come to the conclussion and form a complex idea that those books are a rough guide of what not to do if you are a boy that ageNow that is highly pedagogic So i had a good time reading it i chuckled and rolled my eyes in the stupidity that still torments Greg and it was all okTHOUGHTS ABOUT THE BOOK I don't like his parents The jovial plot is always a plus My brother loved it It was very enjoyable and fun easy to read I like the cartoon style so much

    Greg the main character of this incredibly funny series is a middle schooler whose universe revolves around him He was uite selfish in the first two books But that was nothing Greg is reaching the pinnacle of selfishness in this book He always has an idea how to benefit himself even if it hurts someone else inclusing his best friend or family members But there still is karma in the world Greg doesn't know about it This might be the funniest book in the series so far Loved itEnjoy
