Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw
Wimpy Kid Greg Heffley returns with further entries from his idiosyncratic diary, his life brimming with dilemmas.
Will he succeed in getting the divine Holly Hills to notice him? Will he and best friend Rowley create a suitably Historic Time Capsule – and manage to bury it? Will he ever obtain the nirvana of clean clothes again, now he's saddled with doing his own laundry? And how will he stop his Dad from trying to force him into more 'manly' exercise and activity?
Deliciously easy to read, laugh-out-loud funny and interspersed with slapstick cartoons, the consecutive entries acquire a wonderful randomness through juxtaposition and the wimpy kid has a refreshingly head-on, chatty approach to life. Entertaining – but also dealing with the big stuff!
