I thought this book was very interesting and hilarious. I made a connection with this book when i found out that he was snowed in and had to miss school. The reason i connected with this is because when i lived in Colorado i got snowed in and had to miss school a lot. I think it was stupid of Manny to turn off the power in the house. If i was Greg i would've gotten so mad. You would like this book because it was funny and had a good dialogue.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is about a middleschooler named Greg Heffely. He needs money so he can buy some Kritterz Kash for his virtual pet Gregory's little friend. But when he goes to shovel some snow it keeps on piling down on the driveway so he uses the hose on the side of the house to melt the snow, and it seemed to work perfectly. The only problem was that when the man went to get his mail the water from the hose had frozen over completely. So the man slipped, and called Greg's father. Then Mr.Heffely (Greg's Father) drove Greg back to the man's house and made him salt the driveway, and made him give back the five dollars he earned while clearing the man's driveway of snow. So he had no money from that hour he had spent hosing down the driveway. The next day Mr.Heffely had to go to a business trip and would not be home for about a week. A few minutes later Rowley called saying there was a blizzard that was going to hit surrey street later that day. Well Greg didn't believe him because last winter Rowley's family recorded a winter special and a weather report got permanently set to the bottom of the recording, and then last summer Rowley watched the special and called him saying a blizzard was going to hit tomorrow. Well later that day a massive storm hit and Greg woke up and school was canceled. They were out of all the canned food because Greg took all the cans he didn't like to food drive. The next day the power went out. But later on we find out that Manny turned all the power out except his own room so he must have thought that it was every man for himself. Well the next day Mr.Heffely got back he got take out food and then Greg, Rodrick, Manny, and Mrs.Heffely ate like a pack of wolves. ( )

It's like all the other ones: wildly popular, slightly entertaining, and a too-quick read. ( )

Just not as funny as the previous books in the series.

I have always enjoyed Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. This book has excellent examples of how important it is to be good and kind to others, especially around the holidays. Kinney does a great job of teaching a positive message that highlights the idea of hard work. He teaches kids that sometimes we make mistakes in life, even if they are not intentional, but the best thing to do is to face up to our mistakes instead of run from them. Kinney shows that in order to get what we want, we have to work hard for it instead of take the short cut or the easy way out. He provides a positive message while incorporating humorous details that kids will enjoy throughout the book. ( )

This book is about a kid named Greg Heffley he is a boy that likes video games,staying indoors, and hanging out with his friend Rowley Jefferson. What he doesn't like is that his brother Rodrick always picks on him sometimes he’s kinda nice but then he is also mean sometimes. Sometimes life is “ hard “ for him because he can't play video games whenever he wants to and sometimes has to play with his little brother Manny. Its winter time where Greg lives he thinks he can get some money by shoveling peoples driveways but when he goes to the first house he asked a woman if he could shovel her driveway for $5.00. The woman says that she doesn't get much company lately so she invites Greg inside. Greg look around the house and sees a bunch of garden decorations that she brought inside for the winter. Greg feels a little uncomfortable about seeing all the decorations. He doesn't want to be rude so he stays inside for a while and eats cookies with milk. After awhile he goes to another house this time it was a man he had a bathrobe on with a cup of coffee to drink. Greg asks the man if he could shovel his driveway for another $5.00 he says ok. After a little bit of shoveling greg notices that the snow he shoveled was coming back so he had to shovel more. Greg goes up to the man's house and asks if he could shovel the whole driveway for $10.00 the man says no Greg starts shoveling again then sees a snow plow shoveling driveways so the man asks if he could plow his driveway for him Greg goes home after that conversation. When he gets home he sees his brother manny playing with his toys and Greg gets something to eat. After he gets something he realizes that the snow had covered the door to get out. They were stuck inside. Greg tells his mom that there was snow blocking the door and that they were stuck. Then the powers goes out.

My opinion on A diary of a wimpy kid would have to be i thought i was a cool book. In my opinion this has got to be the best book in the series. What i liked about the book is that it has comedy and things that happen during normal days. What i didn't like about this book is that it kinda scared me when Greg was stuck inside the house during a blizzard and the power went out. In my opinion this book has got to be a 10/10. My favorite part of the book is when Greg found out about the whole power outage was caused by his little brother Manny it was kinda funny to see that he could turn the power off.
