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.
My rating 4 out of 5
