    This review is from: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (Hardcover)
    DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL is book number 9 in the series. The author, Jeff Kinney, continues his insightful wit, accompanied by cutting edge (if not exactly award-winning) artwork. The artwork is a cross between a Gary Larson cartoon and Scott Adams of Dilbert fame.

    If you remember where we left Greg Heffley the last time we saw him, Greg was dealing with losing the attention of his best friend, Rowley Jefferson. That book ended with Greg leaving Rowley Jefferson hanging around the “Find a Friend station.” In this installment, THE LONG HAUL, the Heffley’s go on vacation. But it’s a vacation like none you’ve ever seen before. Get ready, because in this vacation we will NOT be traveling with Ward and June Cleaver. This vacation does NOT include Wally and the Beaver.

    Right off the bat, the Heffley’s journey takes a bad turn. Naturally, they are stuck in traffic for a long time. Alas, dad gets really nervous around high bridges: “The bridge to the beach was one of those kinds that’s really high above the water, and I’m sure dad wasn’t looking forward to being stuck on it for the next half hour.” But that’s not the worst part. Somehow, a seagull ends up INSIDE the Heffley car, flying around, looking for Cheeseits. It’s complete mayhem! Perhaps the best sketch in the entire book is the illustration of the seagull flying around the car.

    Here’s WHY this book is so funny (and why all the books in the series are so funny): The author writes about what ACTUALLY HAPPENS (or comes close to happening) in our family trips. The reason we laugh so hard at these diary entries is that we see OURSELVES here. The accounts hit very close to him–at least for me.

    √ All in all, DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL is a hilarious, fun read. The artwork, by itself, would not win any awards, but in conjunction with the text, it’s excellent, and adds to the fun. Where does Jeff get the idea for drawing these bizarre creatures that pass as humans?

    Recommend!

    this is not just a great kids book, it makes adults laugh too. I bought it today, downloaded it to my kids’ kindles, they immediately read it, then they wanted me to read it to them also. I laughed out loud numerous times over the ridiculous situations in the book. I highly recommend this whole series to anyone who wants to get their kids to read.

    • Because of the fact that Microsoft suffered from the neigatve impact of the red ring of death on their gaming console, they extended the warranty of their Xbox 360.

    This was a great book and I encourage the series to go on. You see I’m ten years old and I love reading books especially ones with lots of humor. This book was hysterical and I think most other kids would like it too.
