Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days by: Jeff Kinney

Released: October 12,2009

Publisher: Amulet Books

4 stars

Summary: It`s summer vacation-the weather`s great,and all the kids are having fun outside. So where`s Greg Heffley? Inside his house,playing video games with the shades drawn.

Greg,a self-confessed "indoor person",is living out his ultimate summer fantasy; no responsibilities and no rules. But Greg`s mom has a different vison for an ideal packed with outdoor activities and "family togetherness."

Whose vision will win out? Or will a new addition to the Heffley family change everything?

Review: I love the Wimpy Kid series even if it`s a little too young for me. I started reading about a year ago and I loved it. I got the book at around 7 last night and finished it in about 2 hours. The book made me laugh aloud at times because a part of the book took place at a boardwalk. I love boardwalks and I could relate to it.

My favorite character is Rowley. He`s is Greg`s dumb friend who always makes me laugh. I was disappointed that Rowley was hardly in the book! He was kinda in the beginning,the whole middle part he wasen`t and about 30 pages at the end. Greg and Manny were pretty funny too.

I was disappointed because the book never tells you what happened to the book club the mom put up or whatever happened to Greg and Rowley? It left me unanswered.

Overall: It could be funny at times but left me with questions.
