Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

on 5/27/2012

If you've never read the Wimpy Kid series, it's about Greg Heffley, a lazy middle-schooler who is constantly being bullied by his older brother Rodrick. Greg's little brother Manny pesters him and gets away with it. His friend, Rowley, is a weird kid, but always gets it good with the girls while Greg is unpopular with them. Greg strives to become famous but is consistently a failure. The other three books in the series are Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw. Dog Days is the fourth in the series. There is also a Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book. In Dog Days, Greg expects to stay home all summer and do nothing but play video games. His mom urges him to try to get out of the house, but he doesn't buy it because he's learnt from experience. When he and Rowley go to Rowley's country club, they bring a girl, Trista, along, but then she starts talking to some lifeguard and ignores the people who took her there. One unlucky day, Rowley's dad shows up at Greg's house and expects Greg to pay for all the smoothies he's ordered at the country club. Greg and Rowley start a lawn mowing business. A customer shows up and Greg gives her bad quality lawn mowing. Then his dad comes and finishes the job, but the lady stiffs Greg. Read More

Product Overview

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?

Praise
"[W]hat a range of middle-school misery Kinney wrings out of a few lines....The cartoons don't merely illustrate the story, they advance it and split it off into a hundred digressive tributaries, working like the footnotes in Eliot's WASTE LAND."
"[H]ilarious....[N]ods to reality add humor and depth to this fourth Wimpy Kids novel, consistent in style and substance with previous series entries, which fans new and old will savor."
From the Publisher
Annotation It's finally summer vacation and "wimpy kid" Greg Heffley is looking forward to long, air-conditioned days of sitting inside, in the dark, playing video games. His mother, however, wants Greg to enjoy long, sun-filled days of playing outside with other kids. Will anything be able to salvage Greg's vacation? B&W line illustrations accompany the text of this fourth entry in the WIMPY KID series.
