Everything Greg seems to do has hilarious consequences and his family are very funny. In this book it is summer vacation and even though it is nice and hot Greg insists on staying inside hooked up to his video games with the blinds drawn. His mother is tired of Greg being lazy and decides that this summer should be fun and packed with family activities.
This book was very good. My favourite character has to be Greg as he can be horrible but the audience always roots for him anyway! I really like the part when Greg's mum is forgotten by the whole family at a petrol station in the middle of nowhere - it is hilarious.
I recommend this book to readers around 10-13 who enjoy reading as it is quite easy to read, but it has some challenging words as well.
I give this a big 5/5 because I enjoyed reading it so much." -- Max, Millennium RIOT Reader
