Product Description

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?

5Great memory book for your child's keepsakes
By Angelina Rausch
This particular purchase was a gift for a friends son, but I still have my 12 year olds sons book from 4 years ago. It's full of stories to be completed by your child and so funny to look back on when they're older. The hardback is very durable, has held up through a crazy (now 12 years old, as the photo shows:) ) boys toting it around and a move. I'll be holding on to this forever.

4While the vocabulary was easy for my second grader
I purchased this book for my 2nd grade daughter at her request. This series is very popular with her friends and she wanted to read one too.
This book is often referred to as a "novel in cartoons", with hand writing font to appear as the main character's written journal. Each page featured at least one, sometimes many, cartoon illustrations that added to the humor of the book. While the vocabulary was easy for my second grader, I did feel the content was a little mature. She found it funny, however the situations and interactions are most appropriate for preteens and middle-schoolers. The main character himself is in middle-school, and therefore the issues he has to deal with are targeted to this demographic. A good series to get kids interested in reading longer books, as the presentation is enticing and fun.

5Great read for elementary aged boys
By Amazon Customer
Our 8 year old son loves this series. It is difficult for him to find books to read that are more advanced in terms of vocabulary, but also a bit immature (like him lol). If you are looking for a book that will make an 8 year old boy laugh, this is the book series for him. The series is geared more toward a 3rd-5th grade reading level. Nothing inappropriate, just a bit immature (like most boys).
