My son now reads!!!

by Analisa M on 2/11/2009

I got the first book in this series for my 11 year old son last year hoping to stimulate his desire to read. He read it in 2 days! He bugged me for this book after finishing up the other ones, and kept reminding me when it would be released. He finished this one in 3 days. Now he reads at least a book a week and is asking for more. He wrote a school book report on the series and in his words, "this book is great for kids who are bullied and who are reluctant readers."

Product Overview

The highly anticipated third book in the critically acclaimed and bestselling series takes the art of being wimpy to a whole new level.

Let’s face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Somebody just needs to explain that to Greg’s father. You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other “manly” endeavors. Of course, Greg is able to easily sidestep his father’s efforts to change him. But when Greg’s dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get shipped out.

Greg and his family and friends, who make the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books a must-read for middle school readers, are back and at their best in this hilarious new installment of the series, which is sure to please current fans while attracting new ones.
