“Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down” by Jeff Kinney

P1600997

If you are familiar with the Wimpy Kid books, Greg needs no introduction,  this is more of the same formula, Greg a middle school slacker wants to sit around playing video games but his parents have other ideas for him. This is the eleventh book in the series, Greg like Bart Simpson doesn’t age. The timing is set around Halloween which for Greg means candy and trying to get an invite to the cool girl’s Halloween Party. As usual things don’t work out as Greg wants. To get to the party, he has to join the school band, but he has no musical talent and after getting a French Horn he can’t play his parents insist he persevere. The book also sees Greg and his long suffering sidekick Rowley attempt to make a horror movie with Gummy Worms and a shower scene. It is a quick easy read with some truly funny moments.

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...
