My son and daughter greatly enjoyed this book, I bought them each their own copy to add to their individual collection of the Wimpy Kid series. In my son's opinion, it was one of the best. I will not give away much, only to say that once again the main character Greg Heffley finds himself facing another less than satisfying Summer where none of his plans quite go accordingly. Once again his mother interferes in his life and involves him in things that he does not enjoy and are embarrassing, and it's another year trying to impress his dad only to fall short. It's a fun, quick, light read with amusing illustrations that will make you laugh out loud, if not relate and reminisce about your own similar experiences at that awkward age. Fun for kids, but also a fun peek for adults. If you aren't looking for something with depth and an intricate plot, but quite the opposite to entertain and amuse you, then I recommend this book for anyone looking to laugh. I had it delivered right to my home and it arrived in just a few short days. Wal-Mart definitely delivers and their prices CAN'T BE BEAT!
