DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LAST STRAW by Jeff Kinney



Greg Heffley is back! It's January and Greg is up to his usual antics. His first dilemma is his New Year's resolution. Since resolutions are intended to make someone a better person, he realizes he is pretty good already. Perhaps his resolution should be to help other people in their quest to be better. His great drawings help readers learn that Greg's parents don't particularly share his belief that he should be "helpful" in making them "better."

Fans of the Jeff Kinney series are sure to laugh their way from January right through until Greg's summer vacation. There's a school dance, a wacky sleepover, adventures on the soccer field, attempts to hook up with Holly Hill, a well-intentioned try at being a Boy Scout, and much, much more. Greg's problems are surprisingly realistic, and his drawings are hilarious. Don't miss THE LAST STRAW. The only problem I see, is waiting until book #4 is available.
