Diary of a Wimpy Kid : The Last Straw - Jeff Kinney

Summary: Lets 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 fathers 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.

My Review: This is probably my favorite of all the Wimpy Kid series. His humor in this one is more situational and self-deprecating. In the other books he is more self-centered and his viewpoint as such is supposed to be funny. And for me, it's just not. There were actually a couple spots I laughed. I can't say that for the first two books.

My Rating: 4 Stars.

Sum it up: The funniest in the Wimpy Kid series.
