Talking to Girls, Not Changing Dirty Clothes, Sitting on the Bench, and Pleasing Dad,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Diary of a Wimpy Kid # 3 - The Last Straw (Gebundene Ausgabe)
If your fourth grader reads this book, he'll be ready for the worst to come in Middle School . . . and be able to laugh at it all when it arrives.
It's very awkward to be in Middle School. Bigger kids are either tripping you (or worse) or you are afraid you'll be embarrassed by something (almost anything!). Jeff Kinney gets it right.
One of the major story lines is that Greg wants Holly Hills to notice he's alive. But like most boys that age, it's hard for him to do anything other than wish to be with her. Everyone who was ever a boy that age will remember going through what Greg is.
Another major story line involves Greg being expected to do his own laundry (which means NOT doing any laundry . . . and wearing dirty clothes). Reading that section brought back memories of the aroma of my unwashed gym clothes in eighth grade.
There's a seemingly innocent story line about neighbors who want to shoot a funny video that turns out to have more potential than I would have expected.
Greg's dad also wants to toughen him up . . . to make a man out of him. And Greg will do anything to avoid that! All boys who prefer video games to hiking will relate to these stories.
Greg has his usual complaints about Rodrick and Manny, but they are so expected that you'll feel like you could have written those parts.
I liked the part, too, where Greg decides to write a book. There is also a funny section about writing a four-page paper that may inspire youthful imitation.
As with the earlier books, the illustrations are great. The printing also makes it seem a little more like a diary (except that such a boy's diary would never be this neat).
I had fun, recalled lots of my youthful moments, remembered similar circumstances my boys went through, and laughed aloud quite a lot. What more can a book do? It's a winner!
