Publisher Comments:

The highly anticipated third book in the critically acclaimed and bestselling series takes the art of being wimpy to a whole new level.

Lets face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Somebody just needs to explain that to Greg's father. You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other “manly” endeavors. Of course, Greg is able to easily sidestep his father's efforts to change him. But when Greg's dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up... or get shipped out.

Greg and his family and friends, who make the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books a must-read for middle school readers, are back and at their best in this hilarious new installment of the series, which is sure to please current fans while attracting new ones.

Thatand#8217;s the question Greg Heffley is asking as his town voluntarily unplugs and goes electronics-free. But modern life has its conveniences, and Greg isnand#8217;t cut out for an old-fashioned world.

With tension building inside and outside the Heffley home, will Greg find a way to survive? Or is going and#8220;old schooland#8221; just too hard for a kid like Greg?

Synopsis:

This book shows that jeff Kenny mows a lot about how kids are in middle school, while saying exactly what a big brother would do to his little brother, for example, tease him, doesn't let him do something first, give him bad reputation, Embarrassing him by telling everyone in his school his embarrassing mistakes, and he also shows how someone in middle school whole react to all that.

My daughter (9 yrs old) loves reading "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and I (30) enjoy when we get a chance to read them together. At first i was not interested, but then one day on our way home, she always reads, and it got my attention that out of nowhere i hear her giggling and laughing! LOL there was no one else in the back, and we do not have a tv screen in the back either (thank God!) so i asked her what was so funny? she read to me the exact passage that made her laugh, next thing you know, i'm laughing with her! LOL she lent this book to her classmate and he "lost" it, so i need to get this one for her again. and we are sooooo going to the movies this friday to see the wimpy kid movie...i was excited to see the billboard. makes me feel like a kid again :)
