Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days is the super funny fourth title in the highly-illustrated, bestselling and award-winning Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney. Perfect for both boys and girls of 8+, reluctant readers and all the millions of devoted Wimpy Kid fans out there. Dog Days is also a major motion picture and box office smash. 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...Praise for Jeff Kinney and the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series: "The world has gone crazy for Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid series". (Sun).

Publishers Weekly, 2009-10-12 Is there a better remedy for the back-to-school doldrums than getting to see how Greg Heffley spent his summer vacation? If nothing else, the comedy of errors and indignities he suffers will make readers feel a whole lot better about any family vacation disasters of their own. In the fourth book in Kinney's bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Greg has a falling-out with his friend Rowley over a failed lawn-care business, puts up with his parents' attempts to get him out of the house (Mom organizes a book club for boys who pick out titles like "Sudoku Insanity" and "Ultimate Video Game Cheats") and tries to shake off the twin horrors of the murderous "muddy hand" from a horror film he watches and the terrifying sights in the men's locker room at the pool. Kinney's gift for telling, pitch-perfect details in both his writing and art remains (such as the cursive script and cutesy content of Mom's photo album captions). No reason to think kids won't devour this book as voraciously as its predecessors. Ages 8-12. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
