    And Dog Days they are. Dog days : noun " When everything you do, the universe some how conspires to undo. " - My very own dog, Eva [in the figure above]There is a new pet in the family and bringing something into the family without the wife's consent is a bad idea.Bringing "something alive" is suicide.

    I read this entire book on the sidelines of my eleven year old son's football game on a freezing October day in Wisconsin. I laughed so hard at parts that I think I disturbed some of the more intense observers of said game. That's ok. Middle school football is boring.My favorite scenes from the book:1. The idea that the wimpy kid and his dad are united in their hatred of a comic strip,2. The email the wimpy kid sends his mom when he's on vacation...

    This hilariously sharp comic book is written from the perspective of 11 year-old Greg, whose canny jokes and observations have become a series of popular books. Dog Days chronicles Greg's Summer holiday, which he wants to spend playing video games in his room, with the curtains shut and a cover over his head. Greg's mum, however, seems to think that Summer holidays should be spent doing 'useful things' such as running around outside, spending tim...

    Plan to finish this today! I like this much better than "The Last Straw". Anyone out there who has read the Wimpy Kid series agree or disagree? So far, my favorite part is Rowley thinking that Greg's family is rich because they ran out of toilet paper and were using Christmas napkins until Dad went to get more TP. Been there done that!
  • Janete
    Book 4 is much better than Book 3!
  • Shaina
    This one made me actually laugh a lot. I genuinely worry about Greg but he does have some funny things happen to him. Someone talk to his mom!

    If you would want to know how a life of a unfortanate teenager goes? Then read the Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. It is about a kid who is in middle school and faces a lot of problems. He faces pretty much faces all the problems you could think of. The main character Greg Heffrey is stuck as a middle child and a social outcast. His younger brother Manny and his older brother Rodrick drive him absulutly nuts with their crazy ways of doing things....

    I was expecting that this 4th book could have loads of funny stories of Greg with a dog(s). I know expected too much but despite that, I did enjoy the diary entries written. I was just a little disappointed that Greg and his family didn't have that many happy memories with Sweetie while the dog is with them. But at least, his Grandma was able to keep the dog in the end. Maybe some are not really a dog person/people after all.

    This is my first read from Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series and I enjoyed it along with my children. It is a fun read about Greg, "an indoor kid" and his mom trying to make him stay away from the screens. During the summer holidays, Greg is spending time with the family and his best friend, getting himself into a lot of troubles.
  • Jacob R.
    This book in my opinion is great. It takes us back to those good old days of elementry and middle school. Even knowing a few of these events have actually happened to us. Filling sorry for the kid one second laughing at his wierd side the next, this book will keep you reading. THis book relates to our lives in many ways, it reminds of those kids that where kind of off, and tells us some of there stories. Of course, these stories get as off and cr...

  • Close Enough
    in this book  Greg  was grounded  because he watched the muddy hand movie with his friend Rowley without the permission of his parents, so he was supposed to join his mom reading club in the neighbourhood ,eventually the club was down to one member , that was Greg !He spent an horrible vacation with  Rowely's familly ; he got into a lot of troubles during that summer ..The book was not funny at all at least for me , but it still easy read
  • Valeria De La Rosa
    I think that the book Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days was a very relate able.I think my whole class will enjoy this book very much because of the humor and the situations they might relate to.What I don't like is that every book has a different story that doesn't continue from the last one so it's like a gap between each book. My two most favorite parts would be when Greg's parents tell him that they got him a phone but they actually got him this c...

    Diary of a wimpy kid (dog days) is about Greg and how he wants to spend his summer. He wants to sit inside all day and watch t.v. and play video games but his mom had other plans for him. She wants him to go outside and be active but he definitely doesn't like that. His parents want him to be more responsible. So he gets a job, well actually a fake job at the country club.

    One of the best in the series👍Greg thinks he is really smart but his life goes worse.He is manipulative yet ny now he realizes his so called best friend is not that dumb as he thinks. I so hope h8s attitude changes in the later books.The book is so damn funny👍

    Amazing!!! I like reading fun easy books when I have a chance. When you have a great book; you get to enjoy its fun to read books that are fun and easy and hilarious when you have to read something complicated and not that much fun at school. Dont get me wrong Grade level books are fun but not as fun as in like books you can laugh at And makes you relax but it does help your reading and increases your reading stamina!The Dog Days book is about Gr...

    Summer is all scorching splendour. And much like Greg Heffley, I am content to live out the dog days of summer sitting pretty in a cozy, darkened room....surrounded by books, crisps and the waves of air-conditioned goodness.Speaking of books, I had been oscillating between dire apocalyptic dramas and predictable mush fests. The resulting mood swings are NOT a pretty sight. I needed a quick, laugh-a-minute riot.And The Diary of A Wimpy Ki...

    An interesting quick read that middle grade kids will enjoy. Mixing a chapter book with comics and drawings on every page makes this easy and enjoyable to read. My son has read all of these books and was thrilled when his book fair coincided with the release week of this book.The rating above is based on readability and the fact that my son loved it.Now on to my personal thoughts:I let him read through all of these and didn't think anything about...

    Title: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog DaysAuthor: Jeff KinneySummary: This book is part of Greg's funny journal focusing on his summer. Greg's idea of his summer vacation being a video game marathon. That was not Greg's mom's idea. This book is mostly about Greg's mom coming up with idea's (that end up not being good ideas at all) to keep Greg off of video games. The first idea Greg actually like for a while. The idea was he would go with Rowley to t...
