Dog Days, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Now in paperback - the fourth mega-selling instalment in the hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid series! The way I like to spend my summer holidays is in front of the TV, playing video games with the curtains closed and the light turned off. Unfortunately, Mom's idea of the perfect summer holiday is different from mine.

Greg's mom has a vision of "family togetherness" that really doesn't sound a whole lot of fun. But there's a brand-new addition to the Heffley family to contend with and it looks like Greg might be outnumbered.

It could be a real dog of a summer ...

Review by

In this volume Greg is on his school holiday. Forced to give up his video games and do something outdoors, he goes swimming, gets a dog and goes away with Rowley. I found this book the weakest of the series as there seemed to be fewer jokes that would make an adult laugh. Children (the target audience!) will still enjoy this book.

Review by

Greg Heffley continues his hilarious escapades over the summer holidays. Poor chap, whatever he does, he just can't win! All his grand schemes and Machiavellian manipulations come to nought, while Rowley wins apparently without trying.<br/><br/>A good read, but after three books, I found the magic to be wearing off just a little. Maybe one should not have an overdose of Greg!
