Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5–8—When Greg's mom, who's obsessed with family time, insists on a road trip, things are bound to get interesting. With a pacifier-stealing pig, hungry seagulls, a broken-down car, and the Heffleys' luck, this family vacation turns into a disaster that ends with a day at a water park. As a result, they're stranded without any money, a long way from home. Will the Heffley family make it home? Narrator Ramon de Ocampo animates Kinney's book. His intonations easily bring the author's unique, realistic characters to life. His fast-paced, entertaining narrative style is ideal for Greg's story and will have the whole family laughing out loud. Don't miss this selection. VERDICT Great for reluctant readers, this latest "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" audiobook is a must-have for every library collection.—Jessica Moody, Olympus Jr. High, Holladay, UT --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Review

"Every kid—and every parent—who's ever suffered through a family road trip will feel as one with Greg."

this is not just a great kids book, it makes adults laugh too. I bought it today, downloaded it to my kids' kindles, they immediately read it, then they wanted me to read it to them also. I laughed out loud numerous times over the ridiculous situations in the book. I highly recommend this whole series to anyone who wants to get their kids to read.

Format: Hardcover
DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL is book number 9 in the series. The author, Jeff Kinney, continues his insightful wit, accompanied by cutting edge (if not exactly award-winning) artwork. The artwork is a cross between a Gary Larson cartoon and Scott Adams of Dilbert fame.

If you remember where we left Greg Heffley the last time we saw him, Greg was dealing with losing the attention of his best friend, Rowley Jefferson. That book ended with Greg leaving Rowley Jefferson hanging around the "Find a Friend station." In this installment, THE LONG HAUL, the Heffley's go on vacation. But it's a vacation like none you've ever seen before. Get ready, because in this vacation we will NOT be traveling with Ward and June Cleaver. This vacation does NOT include Wally and the Beaver.

Right off the bat, the Heffley's journey takes a bad turn. Naturally, they are stuck in traffic for a long time. Alas, dad gets really nervous around high bridges: "The bridge to the beach was one of those kinds that's really high above the water, and I'm sure dad wasn't looking forward to being stuck on it for the next half hour." But that's not the worst part. Somehow, a seagull ends up INSIDE the Heffley car, flying around, looking for Cheeseits. It's complete mayhem! Perhaps the best sketch in the entire book is the illustration of the seagull flying around the car.

Here's WHY this book is so funny (and why all the books in the series are so funny): The author writes about what ACTUALLY HAPPENS (or comes close to happening) in our family trips. The reason we laugh so hard at these diary entries is that we see OURSELVES here. The accounts hit very close to him--at least for me.

√ All in all, DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL is a hilarious, fun read.

This was a great book and I encourage the series to go on. You see I'm ten years old and I love reading books especially ones with lots of humor. This book was hysterical and I think most other kids would like it too.

I’d started to think that Jeff Kinney was running out of steam. After the eighth “Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” I started to wonder whether I might be a little too old for Greg Heffley. Sure, he was still the poster child for middle school humor, but said middle school humor was getting pretty old. In this new book, however, Kinney smartly changes his game a bit: he sets the story on the road over the summer. The Heffleys are taking the classic family road trip, but it doesn’t turn out as corny-sweet as Mrs. Heffley intends. However, it’s a lot less boring than Greg thinks it will be, too.

That’s probably because it’s a road trip gone horribly wrong. “Long Haul” has everything that can go wrong with a road trip: the bad drivers, the crowded theme parks, the crummy hotel rooms, and the nasty birds that try to get in the car and eat everything. Of course, Greg still messes up everything; for example, he yells at a couple of kids in a hotel for screwing around and ends up running into them for the whole rest of the trip. And don’t even get me started on the Heffleys’ new pet pig.

Normally, “Wimpy Kid” books get a little stale three-quarters of the way through, but this one just kept getting funnier and funnier. The only thing I could say against it would be its lack of Rowley, Fregley, and other fun, familiar characters from middle school, but hey, I wanted something different, too. You can’t have it both ways, so I’ll take it this way. I’m sure a lot of you will, too.

My son is not a big reader and struggles greatly in school. Part of that is a result of his high functioning autism. We ordered this book for him for Christmas and he absolutely LOVES it!
He read the entire thing with no assistance. I am so proud of him. I am also thankful he found a series he enjoys that is written well, yet still simply enough he can read it without a struggle.
It's funny and cute much like the other books in the series and the movies.

A great read. It's well written and I plowed through it in one sitting. I could not put it down. I laughed, I cried, I smiled, and I pondered throughout the entire book. You know you just finished reading something great when you get towards the end and you start to panic because you don't want it to end. I thought all the characters were well flushed out and added something interesting to the story. I don't know how I can write a review without giving away the plot, so all I can say you need to read this. You won't regret it.

My 6 year old son began reading "Wimpy Kid" books just as he was learning to read. Many times I would allow him to read before bed and would hear him laughing hysterically in his room. Now, 7 years old, he has read all of them and often will pick them up and read them again. They are silly, but the appeal to his age demographic was actually amazing to me. I didn't have to make him read... he wanted to read. And he loved them all. I would recommend the entire series to any parent of a child who is learning and becoming comfortable with reading comprehension.
