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 muchserious things to worry about like the school soccer team and military school.Dad is determined to make a man out of Greg Greg is quite 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 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 muchserious things to worry about like the school soccer team and military school.Dad is determined to make a man out of Greg Greg is quite 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 subterfuge.Two thirds of the book recounts Greg s ineffectual attempts to get out of the soccer team and his equally ineffectual attempts to befriend Holly Hills He uses Rowley quite 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 him.Towards 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 stitches.In this novel, we see Greg slowly forming a bond with his Dad, who we find is not very different from his son It is quite 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 If you ve enjoyed Diary of a Wimpy Kid 1, you should definitely follow the series because it keeps getting hilarious with each installment. 3,5 Stars.I 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 side.This series is a highly entertaining collection of books that offer much laugh, but notably not much, educationally speaking.That 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 that.Maybe if y 3,5 Stars.I 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 side.This series is a highly entertaining collection of books that offer much laugh, but notably not much, educationally speaking.That 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 that.Maybe if you give it some thought, though, you might come to the conclussion and form acomplex idea, that those books are a rough guide of what not to do if you are a boy that age.Now 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 ok..THOUGHTS 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 3.5 stars Poor Greg has a tough time in this one I found this book funnier than the last one, though I can t remember since I read it a long time ago.It took me 4 days to complete this book, thanks to my busy life But I m glad I picked it up, as I was actually able to finish it.A hilarious short read with cartoons, of course Definitely recommended for humour lovers. 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 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 equivalent, but his mental equivalent 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 world.I 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 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 easily able to 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 ❮Reading❯ ➺ Muerte en Hamburgo (Jan Fabel, Author Craig Russell – Lavons.co.uk Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up [Reading] ➷ Jazz Age Stories By F.
