Book Description

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days is the super funny fourth title in the highly-illustrated, bestselling and award-winning Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney. Perfect for both boys and girls of 8+, reluctant readers and all the millions of devoted Wimpy Kid fans out there. Dog Days is also a major motion picture and box office smash.





The fourth mega-selling instalment in the hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid series!



The way I like to spend my summer holidays is in front of the TV, playing video games with the curtains closed and the light turned off.



Unfortunately, Mom's idea of the perfect summer holiday is different from mine.




Greg's mom has a vision of "family togetherness" that really doesn't sound a whole lot of fun.



But there's a brand-new addition to the Heffley family to contend with and it looks like Greg might be outnumbered. It could be a real dog of a summer . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Fun and easy Read 16 Oct. 2009
Format:Hardcover
Having loaned out all the previous books in this series to various members of my daughter's class (and the class above), this book arrived this week. I sneakily read it quickly before my daughter got hold of it - which was a good thing too because she raced through it in about 24 hours and took it to school today to lend out!

Once again Greg writes a wonderful journal of his life. Understated text set off by hilarious cartoons that had me laughing out loud as I read it. Few books get me actually laughing out loud, but that has been an experience for every one of this series (if you find this book first, the series begins with the red cover "Diary of a Wimpy Kid". Its useful to start at the beginning as some of the jokes refer back to events in previous books).

Greg is on summer break in this book, and the story of that break makes a wonderful self contained book that has a funny and very appropriate ending.

I highly recommend this book - and as its an easy read its a good series for less confident readers, but don't keep it from the confident readers too! Its too good not to share. Parents of my daughters friends (especially the ones who are boys) tell me they are having the funny bits read out to them over and over again! So this is perfect for ages about 8 and upwards (no upper age limits in my opinion!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 30 Jan. 2010
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Greg Heffley wants to spend his summer indoors, relaxing, playing video games with his friend, Rowley, and watching late-night horror films. His mom has other ideas, however. She wants him to spend time with the family, improving his education, and playing outdoors.

Greg tries to implement his ideas of summer, but without much success. He tries to spend time with Rowley kicking back at his friend's father's country club, but gets permanently uninvited when he accidentally tells the clubhouse manager his complaints about the place's service. Things only get worse when his mom tells him he has to find a way to pay off half of the smoothie bill he and Rowley racked up.

When Greg's father comes home with a dog that won't leave him alone, he's soon at his wits end. With failed attempts to earn money, a falling out with his best friend, and a crazy dog, will Greg ever survive summer? Will he find some way to make this into a great summer, despite the rocky start?

This fourth installment is an excellent addition to the other three stories. Greg's true character really comes out in this novel as he discovers who he is, learns to balance everything that's going on, and takes an easy-going approach to life. The illustrations are well-done and only add to the book's humor.

Avid and reluctant readers alike who have loved the other DIARY OF A WIMPY KID books, who like humorous stories, or who prefer reading realistic fiction will all enjoy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review I wrote for my literacy homework 4 Oct. 2013
By Tommy W
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is about a boy named Greg who has just finished the school year and the summer holidays have begun. There is a lot about the summer and wild adventures that he has in the. Greg spends a lot of time, either with his new Dog named Sweety or at an amusement park with his friend Rowley.

I enjoyed the book because it was interesting and very child friendly so I could understand and enjoy it.

The book was funny because at one part Greg was very thankful that there wasn't a muddy hand when they were having a sleep over, watching a film called `The Muddy Hand'. Greg and Rowley got frightened that the muddy hand was coming because they heard a noise. They ran down to the basement to hide and half the time one of them was asleep and the other half of the time one of them was keeping lookout. Unfortunately when Rowley was keeping lookout he fell asleep after 5 minutes so Greg had to keep look out the whole time!

I would recommend this book to all kids - boys and girls below the age of 16. I would rate this book 5/5 because at some points it was funny, sad, cool, awesome, scary but most of all it's a very comical book

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning - this is a very funny book! 29 May 2012
By GeorgeV
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is one of a series about a boy called Greg Heffley. All the books in the series are written from Greg's point of view.
In this diary he wants to spend his summer inside, but his mother wants to spend time together as a family. This leads to loads of hilarious situations.
I have lots good reasons to like this book, but one of my favourite bits is when Greg and his best friend Rowley have to pay off a bill of $2,500 and start their own business up doing odd jobs. I also like the part when Greg gets a dog called Sweetie who won't leave him alone and really annoys him by barking even when they are having dinner.
Greg is in middle school and the book is set in America. There are lot of funny parts which had me laughing out loud. I especially love the illustrations because they set the scene and are cartoons which are funny to look at.
I recommend this book to 8 years and above. I have read this book four times and never tire of it!
