Format: Paperback
My son loves his play station and the telly. It is very difficult to get him to read something and even more difficult finding something he actually enjoys. The Wimpy Kid series, of which the Last Straw was his favourite, are books that he has read without complaining. He even said, after visiting the cinema to watch the film,'It was okay, not as good as the book!' from him praise indeed.Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw

My 9 year old son loved this book! He tends to prefer reading comics but when he got this book he couldn't put it down. This is the first book I think he has read from start to finish - great price too. Would definitely recommend!!

Format: Paperback
Characters
Greg is a total wimp, he likes to do his homework and likes to be good. Rodrick is a tough nut, he likes to rock on the drums in his band Looder Diper but he is not the smatyest kid in the class!

Plot
Greg has a wild plan to make Holly Hills fall in love with him. Dad's plan is to send Greg to Spag Union for the school break. Rodrick just wants to chill and then tock with his band mates.

Ending
Holly feels nothing for Greg, he gets her thourghts of him in a year book note. Holly likes more of Rowley then Greg. Dad has second thourght of Spag Union and shipping Greg off.

Intrest level
I give this story a 5/5 because in all of it is funny. When you start reading you do not want to stop because its just that good.

Other comments
The events that happen in the story would probably happen to most kids. Like when you sit on somthing gooey in the car or your school bus breacks down and you have to walk it to school, there are many more funny events that happen like that but to find out you have to read the book.

What can I say? My son waited for this book and promptly read it in 2 evening sessions. He loves the wimpy kid books and is already waiting for the next one. Anything that has them reading and laughing out loud has to be good.... maybe I ought to read it myself!!

This is great I can't stop my ten year old son reading. He loves these books they keep him entertained for hours. we have bought all of them except the do it yourself book.
I had a quick read at it myself it was really funny. As I said I had bought all the books in the series and it has kept my son away from the wii and computer for three weeks it is bliss highly recomended.

Format: Paperback
My son is 11, like most boys he doesn't like reading. This book, like all others in the series, is funny with lots of pictures, and it talks about children about my son's age and things they encountered. My son reads it again & again, and laughs everytime, he also read out to me so I can laugh with him! I think this book + its series are good for encouraging children to read, particularly for those who are not keen in reading. I bought all the books in the series, and my son loves it all and still reading them repeatedly. Can't wait for the next one to come out.

Format: Paperback
My eldest son never has his head out of a good book and is reading well beyond his age, however my youngest is a different story. He loves to read but finds it difficult to get into a book he doesn't like straight away. He has read all the Wimpy Kid books and has loved everyone. He is even happy to read them out loud to me and I must admit I have quite enjoyed them also. They are humerous but also teach children everyday lessons and how situations can arise.

Format: Paperback
Brilliant book which my 9 year old son wouldn't put down until he'd read it from cover to cover (most unusual!) Amazon was definitely the best price by far and it was delivered on time - what more could you ask!
