What did you like about the book? Greg Heffley is in middle-school now but his problem-fraught life has not changed. He still has his good best friend, Rowley, his brother Rodrick still tricks him every chance he gets, his mother keeps wanting to improve him, the school bully is still bullying him, in short, another very fun story, the eleventh in the series!

Anything you did not like about this book? Wimpy Kid books are VERY popular –even with first graders who may not understand the life and problems of being in middle-school.

To whom would you recommend this book? Wimpy Kid fans will grab this one!

Who should buy this book? Public and elementary school libraries

Where would you shelve it? Juvenile fiction

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? If you are a Wimpy Kid fan, then yes!
