“Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School” by Jeff Kinney

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Old School

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School

This is the 10th book of the Wimpy Kid series and it seems to be getting a little jaded. Here we have Greg’s mum leading a drive against technology, again. She takes around a petition to try to persuade people to unplug there electronic gadgets for 48 hours. Greg isn’t happy about the whole situation as he is really not cut out for old school entertainment.  Grandpa comes to stay but his character isn’t developed much. Manny and Rodrick only have small roles in this outing, the Wimpy Kid is usually better when there is more interaction with his brothers. Greg and his much put upon sidekick, Rowley go into the lemonade making business but as with previous ventures it doesn’t become the cash cow Greg is hoping for. The last part of the book has Greg going to camp, but only to escape the anger of his dad, when he finds his car damaged by Greg’s mishaps. There are some funny moments but overall this seems more laboured than previous books.

My rating : 3 out of 5

About jimholroyd365

Hi, my name is Jim, I am an Englishman living in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. I started this blog to share my interests, my photos and to make sense of my world. I take a lot of photographs of various subjects, some of which I intend to share here. I collect diecast cars and get the same thrill at 50 as I did when I was 8, when I find a car I'm searching for, Don't worry, I have a separate blog for this hobby. Please feel free to comment and ask questions on what I blog. I am quite new to this blogging, I was inspired by reading a book, which began as a blog of a London Ambulance Driver: "Blood, Sweat and Tea". I hope my blog will be entertaining and amusing, I did try stand up comedy in the UK and had seven gigs before I left to teach English in Georgia. I love reading and so the blog will include book reviews of books as I finish them.I don't know about which direction this blog will go, I am a great believer in serendipity...let the journey begin...
