Readers Top Reviews

this book was great, not your average Diary Of A Wimpy Kid. I enjoyed it lot. Kinda more boring than the rest of them.
I played basketball in elementary school so this one had a lot of nostalgic fun for me. I think I enjoyed this one more than some of the other more recent books as a whole, again maybe for that reason. And seeing some classic familiar faces appear who haven't for years who also a nice treat. Overall a very satisfying story, though one that is oddly lacking some of the core characters from Greg's family.

Ive bought every single one and this is probably one my least favorites. ( Its still a good book) As another review mentions, the repetiveness. I don't like that part, but where is Rowley??

My son struggles to find books he can enjoy comprehending and also retain information about. He was literally jumping for joy and genuinely excited to start reading this book! He loves All of the Wimpy Kid books and all of them so he can reread them. We will be purchasing all books by this fabulous author.
