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
