Product Description

The summer holiday has arrived, the sun is hot, and kids are having fun outside. So where’s our favourite Wimpy Kid? In his house, playing video games with the curtains drawn. Greg is living out his summer fantasy: no responsibilities, no rules and no one to bug him! Unfortunately, Mum has a different vision of a perfect summer: one packed with outdoor activities and ‘family togetherness’. Eeek! And things get even worse when Mum brings home a new addition to the Heffley family. It could be a real dog of a summer…

    This book is great. There is great adventure. My favourite character is holly hills and her dramatic sister heather. I love the part, Heather Hills party her sweet sixteen turned into a deadly disaster. She did want everyone to remember her party so she got what she wanted in the end. I loved the part where they were playing tennis in the country club and greg thought he had the ball and he fell over the net. and at the end when they were in the pool so yes i do think this book is and do recommend it to other people and i do hope they enjoy it like i do.

    i rate this ….........................5stars

    I absolutely love this book! I have read it over 3 times! I have read most of the Diary Of A Winpy Kid books and this was one of my favourites. It is so funny I got told off in class for laughing! I admire the drawing too as they are simple but really give the effct of a drawing in a child’s diary! I first read this book at the library but enjoyed it so much I pleaded my mum to buy it! So now, i enjoy reading this book at the library, home and at school!

    Fantastically funny! This is the fourth book in the diary of a wimpy kid. Greg has problems with honesty and good intentions and Greg has a crush on a seniour girl called Heather Hills(later known as Holly Hills big sister)who is a lifeguard. Greg follows her around all summer hoping that she will notice him but she wont.He also has the worlds most annoying brother, Roderick who can`t seem to stop bothering him like putting a dirty sock in his mouth while sleeping, showing embarrassing pics,tricking him etc. please read :P
