Book Review #269 - Dog Days (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #4) by Jeff Kinney

Dog Days: Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book 4)

It's the summer holidays, the weather's great, and all the kids are having fun outside. So where's Greg Heffley? Inside his house, playing video games with the shades drawn.

Greg, a self-confessed 'indoor person,' is living out his ultimate summer fantasy: no responsibilities and no rules. But Greg's mom has a different vision for an ideal summer . . . one packed with outdoor activities and 'family togetherness.'

Whose vision will win out? Or will a new addition to the Heffley family change everything?
My Rating: 3.5/5
I liked this book more than the third one, but I still don't think it matched the first two.
When you look at Greg's characteristics he doesn't seem like a very nice character, but I find I can't help but like him whilst reading about him.
His relationship with Rowley is the best aspect of this series. I would have liked more of Rodrick involved.
The plot in this instalment is over a short period of time and the writing was as funny as always.
