Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw

Getting locked out of a hotel room wearing only underwear…hanging from a tree and having your pants fall down…could these two things actually happen to the same person in the same year? Yes, if that person is Greg Heffley! That wimp can’t catch a break. He gets deodorant, a travel dictionary and a laundry bag for Christmas. The cute girl at school does finally write in his yearbook, “I don’t really know  you all that well, but you seem O.K., I guess.” Which isn’t bad, until you read what she wrote in Greg’s best friend Rowley’s yearbook “You are so adorable & funny! I hope we have the same homeroom next Year. Stay cute!” Whew. It’s tough being Greg! Author: Jeff Kinney

Clementine`s Letter

Clementine`s Letter

Clementine's Letter

Clementine likes to know what the rules are, especially at school. That way she can keep herself from making mistakes. When her regular teacher, Mr. DMatz, becomes a finalist for the Adventures for Teachers Contest and leaves school for a week, Clementine has to get used to the rules of her new substitute teacher…and she doesn’t understand them one bit.

When the Principal announces that Clementine and her friends can help Mr. D’Matz win the Adventures for Teachers Contest by writing a recommendation letter for him, Clementine has a better idea, she’ll write a letter alright, a great letter, a letter that will guarantee he loses – and get rid of that awful substitute teacher forever.

Mrs. Wurtz leaves a blank notebook in her class’s writer’s corner. The kids are supposed to write in it, and write whatever they want. The only rule is that each person who writes in the book must sign his or her name. It’s fun to read the entries and look at the pictures the kids draw. At first, you don’t know who is who, but as you read you can tell who the kids are by their style of writing and the kind of pictures they draw. The kids reveal their feelings and even fight with each other. Why do boys have to write about puke and boogers and stuff like that? That’s what the girls want to know! In the end, they work out their classroom problems with words. What a Never Underestimate Your Dumbnessgreat idea! Writing about your feelings is a great way to work things out in your own head. Author: Mary Amato

If you like Dear Dumb Diary (Author: Jim Benton) or Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Author Jeff Kinney), try reading about the kids in this story. Speaking of Dear Dumb Diary, book #7 is out Dear Dumb Diary, Never Underestimate Your Dumbness.
