"[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
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.
