  • DOGO Books yukos - I think you will enjoy with reading this book. This book is the one of the series from Diary of a Wimpy Kid. But you don't have to read from the beginning. The reason for this is because this book is all about the daily life of the Greg. Greg is the main character of this book. Sometimes you don't understand the relationship between Greg and his friend. So if you really care about it, I will appreciate you to read from the beginning. By the way, this book is all talking about Greg's daily life so it doesn't continue to the next book. It always talk about the new stuff. In this book, it have many kinds of different stories. For example it's like sleep-over party at school, and one more big story is Greg's family is going to have a kind of house keeper called Isabella. She works very hard, but also she is doing whatever she wanted to do in Greg's house. There are more stories in this book. So if you interested in this book, I will appreciate you to read it!!

    "See, when you're a little kid, nobody ever warns you that you've got an expiration date. One day you're hot stuff and the next day you're a dirt sandwich," Greg Heffley tells readers partway into this fifth installment of Kinney's bestselling Wimpy Kid series. There's a noticeable feeling of transition in this outing as Greg negotiates a sour patch with longtime best friend Rowley, his mother's decision to go back to school, the imminence of puberty (and dreaded accompanying discussions at home and at school), and the fact that one can't stay a child forever—despite evidence to the contrary provided by Greg's Uncle Gary, who's embarking on his fourth marriage. Although there is perhaps less of a central focus in this book than in some of its predecessors, the sense that "all good things must come to an end" emerges, something that inevitably will be true of the series itself at some point. But Kinney hasn't lost his touch for spinning universal details of middle-school life into comic gold—he doesn't have to worry about becoming a dirt sandwich anytime soon. Ages 8–12.
