children's middlegrade graphic fiction. I have to say, I enjoyed the movie more, but anything that makes kids enjoy reading is fine by me. ( )

I laughed through the book and was continually amazed at how lazy this kid was. ( )

The book I'm reading for this quarter is Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, Dog Days by Jeff Kinney. I chose this book because I was in need of a fast read, as well as one that was humorous and had a high lexile, this book suited all of my needs. So it started off with Greg Heffley not being well prepared for school. In his defense it was the last day of school, but after his last day he went to his crush Holey Hills and asked for her number, she signed his yearbook and wrote down all but 2 digits before she was pulled away by her friends. So of course he goes home and calls that number with every possible two number combination but gives up halfway through. Greg has a friend named Rowley and they go on this roller coaster and then get in trouble. This book doesn't really have “drama” or story lines, the stories are always changing and that's what i like about it. In conclusion this book is basically about dad getting disappointed in his son. But in the end he forgives his son for being a bad son the whole summer.

I would recommend this book for anyone under the age of 8. Although this book has a lexile of 1050 it doesnt show it. It's a good book and did make me laugh a couple of time, but i'm also very immature. As a result anyone that's under the age of 8 this will be a good book for. Anyone over this age this book may be a little bit immature. ( )

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.

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.

In the book diary of a wimpy kid:dog days Greg Heffley wants to stay inside but, his mother doesn't think he should spend all of his summer on games so she kicks him out the house for a couple of hours. In the beginning of the book Greg is sitting down playing video games. His mother walks in opens the blinds because it was dark and he seemed like a vampire. Greg's mother told him he should go outside to make more friends since he only has one friend. His friends name is Rowley Jefferson Rowleys parents don't like him hanging out with Greg because, they say he is a bad influence on him.
