Seemed like a rushed book.

We had high hopes for this book. My 9 year old loves DOAWK books and begged the Easter Bunny to bring this is her basket. Even though Greg is not my favorite, it gives us a nice way to bridge some discussion about his behavior after we read the regular Diary series.
This book was not up to the same standard as Jeff Kinney’s other books. It was very receptive chapter-wise, not the usual beginning to end type of story. Also, not only is Greg up to his normal rude and selfish behavior, he’s also depicted physically hitting Rowley. We didn’t even finish this one, my kiddos said it was boring. I agree, wish we’d waited for the library to get in in instead.
