The 3rd book in the best selling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series with Audio! Read quietly or enjoy the audiobook version of this heartwarming and hilarious story!
Lets face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Someone just needs to explain that to his father. When Greg's father tries to change him into a more "manly" son through sports and physical activities, Greg weasels his way out of his dad's attempts to change him. But when Gregs dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get shipped out.
The third book in this genre-busting series is certain to enlarge Kinneys presence on the bestseller lists, where the previous titles have taken up residence for the past two years. Kinneys spot-on humor and winning formula of deadpan text set against cartoons are back in full force. This time, Greg starts off on New Years Day (he resolves to help other people improve, telling his mother, I think you should work on chewing your potato chips more quietly) and ends with summer vacation. As he fends off his fathers attempts to make him more of a man (the threat of military school looms), Gregs hapless adventures include handing out anonymous valentines expressing his true feelings (Dear James, You smell), attempting to impress his classmate Holly and single-handedly wrecking his soccer teams perfect season. Kinney allows himself some insider humor as well, with Greg noting the racket childrens book authors have going. All you have to do is make up a character with a snappy name, and then make sure the character learns a lesson at the end of the book. Greg, self-centered as ever, may be the exception proving that rule. - Publishers Weekly
