This review is from: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw (Book 3) (Hardcover)
Jeff Kinney scores big, again!
Kids, teachers, and parents alike have all been anxiously awaiting the third installment of the Wimpy Kid series. If you were worried the third book of Greg Heffley and his wimpy ways would be watered down, worry no more. In DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LAST STRAW, Kinney maintains his fresh, unique humor that easily connects with adolescents or anyone who still remembers his or her adolescence.
As a sports enthusiast, I particularly loved how Greg's father Frank thought getting Greg active in sports would toughen him up. The sports world creates a number of interesting settings and story lines for Greg's awkwardness to shine.
Anybody ever been affected by the threat of military school? Well, you will relate to the fear that Greg must endure.
This book follows the same successful formula you loved in the other books (It is not like the Do-It-Yourself book) and you will have plenty to laugh about and discuss with other Wimpy Kid readers.
Enjoy. I sure did.
