Most of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid are about his school year but this one is about his summer. I decided to take this book off the shelf because it was a change in the usual books I read. This book is a ten out of ten, most of the books I will do the reports on are books I like. This book is based towards ten through thirteen year old. I could easily read this book a million times.

At the beginning pf the summer he stayed in and played video games. Greg and Rowly went to the beach in the summer . Greg wanted to go to the beach because he was tall enough to ride a roller coaster. He started going to the hair salon (even though he has three hairs) and started getting dirt on different people and rumors. Him and Rowly made a snow shoveling job, it did not go very well. His family got a new dog and Greg wasn't quite fond of the pup. They ended the summer with camping out for a video game but did not end up getting it.

This is the 4th book in the diary of a wimpy kid series. It is humorous and unique just like all of the rest of the books in the series. I would use this book as a way to have students do their own creative writing entry.

Dog Days is the fourth entry of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. This book takes place throughout the summer where the last book leaves off and the antics that ensue. This is a reluctant reader book and you will find students that do not even enjoy reading books enjoying this series. I highly recommend this to children who have difficulty in finding books they are interested in reading. ( )

Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dog Days is a hilarious book out of so many in the series. I would really recommend this book and all the other ones to any student in middle school. Greg daily journal logs his summer activities. From going to the country club to trying to start a lawn business, his middle school aged situations are perfect for kids to relate to. This would be a fun way to have students do a creative writing activity. Not only could they document an event in journal form, they can also add illustrations for a visual source. ( )

Hilarious, unique, and stunning - what fun. I'm a huge Diary of the Wimpy Kid fan and it's fun to bond with my son over these books. The drawings are simple but serve their purpose, wouldn't work so well otherwise. The writing is fresh and genuinely tickles my funny bone. ( )

Kinney has an ear — and eye — for the middle school milieu. For adult readers, he vividly brings back the oceanic feeling of helplessness that swamps most of us at that age when you're not in control of your weirdly changing body, or even what you're allowed to eat or read.

First words
For me, summer vacation is basically a three-month guilt trip.
"I asked Mom to take me back to Bombshells Beauty Salon again today, even though I didn't really need a haircut. I just felt like catching up on the town gossip."
OK, so maybe I AM lazy, but it's not really my fault.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810983915, Hardcover)

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?

In the latest diary of middle-schooler Greg Heffley, he records his attempts to spend his summer vacation sensibly indoors playing video games and watching television, despite his mother's other ideas.
