Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Seven books into the bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Kinney isn't messing with a good thing, and he continues to mine middle-school life for comedic gold. He doesn't appear to be in danger of running out of material, either, covering everything from school elections and chocolate bar fundraisers (" lot of families like mine had to write a check to the school just to cover the cost of the candy bars their children ate," Greg says. "It's possible that nobody sold a single candy bar") to the traumas of "family-style" restaurants and Bring Your Child to Work Day. Greg even gives readers a glimpse of his (much) younger years, including his memories of life in the womb ("fter being hit by the cold air the blinding lights of the delivery room, I wish I'd just stayed put"). Fans will continue to enjoy Greg's ongoing efforts to come out on top, whether trying to secure a private bathroom stall at school or a date for the Valentine's Day dance. Ages 8–12.

Children's Literature - Anne Pechnyo
Things are changing quickly for Greg Heffley! First, his Uncle Gary finds himself broke, jobless, and moving onto the Hefley's couch. Next, Greg's best friend, Rowley, is elected to the student council as Social Chairperson. Then, Greg has to find himself a date to the school's Valentine's Day dance! To make matters worse, the chickenpox are going around the school. As is typical life for Greg, nothing seems to go without embarrassment. When Greg thinks he has found a date for the big dance, unexpected twists leave him wondering if he will be lucky in love or left standing by the wall. The seventh book in the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series, this newest installation will not disappoint Kinney's loyal fans. Readers are left laughing at Greg's first person diary entries detailing each event as well as the accompanying stick-figure cartoons. As with the other titles in this series, Kinney offers enough information at the beginning of the book to catch any reader up, whether this is the reader's first Wimpy Kid experience or their seventh.
