Publisher's Summary

The third book in the #1 New York Times best-selling series from Jeff Kinney, The Last Straw is sure to please young readers. Greg Heffley makes a New Year's resolution to help others improve, but his brand of truthful advice doesn't go over well. Plus, Greg's dad thinks military school might be just the attitude adjustment Greg needs.

Critic Reviews

"Kinney's spot-on humor and winning formula of deadpan text ... are back in full force." (Publishers Weekly)

Reverting Story for pre teen bobys

What did you love best about The Diary of a Wimpy Kid?

I bought this for my son. He is ten and not the keenest reader, but he adores these books. He has actually read them all and now is loving having them to listen to before he goes to sleep. So what I love about this audio is that it is helping my son to develop a love of literature.

What did you like best about this story?

It makes him laugh and he likes to share anecdotes with me from the audio as well as having me listen to section with him. It also is entertaining and educational and means that he is doing something that is not a computer based activity.

What about Ramon de Ocampo’s performance did you like?

Realistic accent. Engages the reader, It is lively and humorous.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

My son listened to sections each night. It was difficult to get him to realise he had to turn it off and go to sleep.

Any additional comments?

I think the more children's/ young adult literature that is put on audio the better. We wish there were more Whimpy Kids written. I would thoroughly recommend these books to all parents, especially the parents of reluctant young male reader. I believe they will enjoy the audio so much that they will want to read the novels

FUNNY!!!

Would you listen to The Diary of a Wimpy Kid again? Why?

My kids and I love these books. The narrator isn't trying to be a Renaissance Fair performer - he is just reading it with a hint of dryness. It is easy to listen and laugh to for anyone who enjoys potty humor, kids being a bit naughty, and everyone embarrassing themselves.

Amazing for English learning

If you could sum up The Diary of a Wimpy Kid in three words, what would they be?

I'm an Egyptian, and I'm learning English. My goal is to be fluent and I believe it's not easy so I decided to begin reading books especially kids books that use easy language to immerse myself in English, This book makes me laugh and have interesting time, the most important it's kind of simulation of living in America because the events and culture in the book.. finally this book has variety of situation that can help me build many vocabularies, phrasal verbs, and idioms.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

as an English learner, I can't listen to this all in one sitting not because the book isn't interesting, but because I'm not that good with English.

Fun

Nice book! Great for kids and teens alike. My 11 year-old loves the series and can't get enough of it! The narrator was great and really made it seem like Greg Heffley was telling the story. I recommend this to anyone who wants a funny, interesting book.

Ramon de Ocampo was born to be the voice of Greg H

de Ocampo's reading is pitch perfect. Brought the stories to life. We bought the entire series. Highly recommended if you like the Diary series.
