 Diary of A Wimpy Kid Week: Day Four - Dog Days

About the Book: It’s summer vacation, the weather’s great, and all the kids are having fun outside. So where’s Greg Heffley? Inside his house, playing video games with the shades drawn.

Greg, a self-confessed “indoor person,” is living out his ultimate summer fantasy: no responsibilities and no rules. But Greg’s mom has a different vision for an ideal summer . . . one packed with outdoor activities and “family togetherness.”

Whose vision will win out? Or will a new addition to the Heffley family change everything?

Our Take: Summer vacation is the most magical time in a young child's life.  Its inevtiable that the Wimpy Kid series would want to exploit this time for our enjoyment!  Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid books continue with 'Dog Days', referring of course to the phrase 'the Dog Days of Summer'.  

We get to see Greg experience his fantasy of a restful and lazy summer and then get slammed with the dark reality that everything he hopes for will go down in flames as his mother has different plans for him.  This fourth book is in the same format as the previous three and its wildly entertaining.   This one was a great read, because it removes Greg from school and sets him in a great variety of other situations.

This is the final actual installment in the Wimpy Kid series to date.  There is a fifth book coming out in November of 2010, which we will review for you at that time, so check back.  We're going to take a look at the 'Do it Yourself' book and the Movie Diary tomorrow, so tune in for that Wimpy fans.  Until then...
