Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Old School by eff KinneyBUY THIS BOOK
Life was better in the old days. Or was it?
That’s the question Greg Heffley is asking as his town voluntarily unplugs and goes electronics-free. But modern life has its conveniences, and Greg isn’t cut out for an old-fashioned world. With tension building inside and outside the Heffley home, will Greg find a way to survive? Or is going ‘old school’ just too hard for a kid like Greg?
The Love Reading 4 Kids Comments
‘One of our Books of the Year 2015 – November 2015 Book of the Month Old School is number ten in the multi-million-selling Wimpy Kid series and author Jeff Kinney is on very good form. The generation gap is something of a theme in this episode: Greg doesn’t understand his parents’ conviction that everything was better in their day – he can’t imagine a world without baby wipes and his mum’s campaign to get people to put away all electronic devices for 48 hours is just embarrassing. When Grandpa move in with them family tensions rise and some very funny scenes result, one involving a party for Grandpa’s regiment of on-line girlfriends, another involving Greg’s brother Rodrick, a mascot costume, and the police. Things get so bad in fact that Greg chooses to go on the school trip – Wimpy Kid fans will know how out of character that is. Greg’s diary entries – words and pictures – are as funny as ever, and this is irresistible reading’
If You Loved Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, You’ll Love:
Wimpy Kid got us all chuckling and getting our own pens and diaries out during classes, however if you have finished them all and are looking for a new love, pick up Liz Pinchon’s ‘The Brilliant World of Tom Gates’, a kickin’ follow up. Tom Gates is very similar to Greg Heffley and his doodling hobby makes the books all the more appealing to read.
