Review: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

When you are enjoying your summer holidays and your mum says “We’re going on a road trip!” Would you be excited? Well here’s one thing we all know, Greg Heffley would not.

The 9th book in the adventurous Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is full of ups and downs and even tragic situations.

Jeff Kinney has continued to use his skills and attributes that he possesses to the maximum with books like this one.
The Heffley’s expectations are high that their road trip would be a success, but things go downhill very fast. If you ask me, you’d be very happy that you are not in the Heffley’s tragic situation.

I love this book because it brings new characters to the series of all shapes and sizes. From a seagull to a fat man with a beard. I also like the cartoony illustrations that he puts lots of effort into—in fact, 101%.
