The third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Jeff Kinney, The Last Straw is sure to please young readers.

Let’s 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. On top of that, Greg makes a New Year’s resolution to help others improve, but his brand of truthful advice doesn’t go over well.

    " Oh Greg Heffley. Never change or else my kiddos will have nothing read. These are funnier and better written than I originally thought they would be- something I think I said in my other reviews. I used to wonder how the kids would be able to go from book two to five to three but after reading four of them now, they are pretty interchangeable. The jokes change but not enough that you have to read them in order to keep up. Keep writing them Mr. Kinney! "

    " I finished a really good book called the DIary of a Wimpi Kid Last Straw by Jeff Kinney. It starts out like this. It was New Year's Day, and Greg comes up with a list of resolutions at the beginning of a year to make himself a better person. Greg's resolution for this year is to try and help other people improve on what they are doing and making their bad habits into good habits. This book is about the life of Greg in his last few weeks of school. Greg is the main character of this book. He loves playing videogames and sleeping. Greg (The main character) wakes up really late. Even when his dad comes home from work he is still asleep. Greg's conflict was that all the bad things that hapenned to him. The bad things is that Greg's teacher lost her dictionary and she thought that someone stole it. So she made them stay inside for recess until the dictionary was returned. The other bad thing was that it was wrestling unit and he does not like getting sweaty at all. The setting is mostly at Greg's neighborhood, school and house. I liked the book Diary if a Wimpy Kid Last Straw because it has everything I like (Humor- funny pictures, Easy to understand- does not have nig words like reproducibility and an easy to read book). I would recommend it to everybody because it does not have bad language and everybody will enjoy this fun book. "
