 Diary Of  A Wimpy Kid Week: Day Three - The Last Straw Book Review

About the Book: The highly anticipated third book in the critically acclaimed and bestselling series takes the art of being wimpy to a whole new level.
 
Let’s face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Somebody just needs to explain that to Greg’s father. You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other “manly” endeavors. Of course, Greg is able to easily sidestep his father’s efforts to change him. But when Greg’s dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get shipped out.
 
Greg and his family and friends, who make the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books a must-read for middle school readers, are back and at their best in this hilarious new installment of the series, which is sure to please current fans while attracting new ones.

Our Take: The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books are a phenomenon.  Author Jeff Kinney has really hit a cord with the youth in his snarky and cheeky book series.  This is the third book in the series and 'The Last Straw' is right on-par with the previous two installments.  The books are laid out like a crudely illustrated diary or journal as wimpy kid Greg insists.

This time we begin with New Year's Day and end with summer vacation.  The trials of getting along with his brother and potential romances take the front burner in the Last Straw.  Kinney has really hit a great stride with these books, that seemingly spring from his subconscious with ease.  This book is every bit as entertaining and fun as the previous two.

This third installment of the Wimpy Kid series is a great addition and we certainly recommend it for any kids ages 7-12.  Watch tomorrow for our look at the 4th book in the series...
