Book Review: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days by Jeff Kinney

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days is Greg Huffley's non-diary of summer.  Greg, however, does not want to leave the house - he would rather spend all his break inside playing video games.  His mother has other ideas, ones that include visiting the public pool, reading classics, and earning his own money, all of which just might ruin Greg's summer. 

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

Things I Liked:
These books are always good for a laugh.  It is fun to read about Greg's way of viewing things, since it is so realistic it's hilarious.  There are so many good anecdotes and funny quotes, I hope you will check this one out when you need a good laugh.  I also always get a kick out of the awesome illustrations.  Here's one of my favorite parts:
"The first time I walked through the men's locker room at the town pool was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life.  I'm probably lucky I didn't go blind.  Seriously, I don't see why Mom and Dad bother to try and protect me from horror movies and stuff like that if they're gonna expose me to something about a thousand times worse." p7
And I simply couldn't resist this quote:
"I'm not really sure what makes a book a 'classic' to begin with, but I think it has to be at least fifty years old and some person or animal has to die at the end." p37
Things I Didn't Like:
Greg seemed even more like a brat than I remember.  I would hate to have him as a younger brother or a friend (poor Rowley), but perhaps that is just because it is pretty true to life.
