Review: Funny, cool, and fun, these are all words that describe Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days, by Jeff Kinney. Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days is the fourth book in the series.

The Wimpy Kid (Gregory), Roderick, and Manny are all of the main characters. Gregory is weird, funny, and cool. The second is weird, mean, and cool. The third is funny, weird, and crazy. Greg is sad when he finds out that he can’t go on a vacation with his family. Therefore Greg is forced to stay home and do the same old hanging out. Greg is sad, mad, and very, very angry at his family. At first Greg thinks that his dog ran away, but soon finds out the truth: that his dog died. Eventually Greg talks his parents into getting a new dog. There are a few problems in this book. One thing is they give their dog to the grandma because it barked at the TV until a commercial about gophers came on

In all I loved this book; it was funny, interesting, enjoyable, and crazy! I liked it because it was funny. I also liked the fact that it was realistic, and it could happen to anyone. I liked that it was never totally unbelievable. Also, when Greg gets scared of the furniture at a sleep over. It was funny because his pants fell down at school. It was also funny when he is scared when he watches a horror movie, and he can’t sleep! Also, I found the book to be a fun to read. I would take away the pictures because it does not have words. I would like it to have more words because I like words! I would recommend this for grades second and anywhere up! I would rate this 4 of five stars.

The other books in the series are: Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw.
