      Greg's father wants him to grow up and get tougher like strong people, boys and girls. But Greg doesn't want to. He's bad at sports and can't do so well in them. Can Greg teach his dad that he should be who he wants to be? Parents can't decide everything, but will Greg show his dad? I loved this book!

        Let's face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Somebody just needs to explain that to Greg's father. You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other "manly" endeavors. This book cracked me up!

            Greg is on the last straw. His dad is not being easy on him. He keeps trying to toughen Greg up, with multiple strategies however none of these seem to do any change. This book was hilarious, and I really liked the illustrations. I recommend this book to people who enjoy other books in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, or people who enjoy books in the Dork Diaries series. I rate this book 5/5.

              Fitted straight into my library with my complete collection of the DOAWK set, the ones that I've read anyway, and it just makes me want to pick it up and start reading it again and again and again!

                This is a great book where the humor never ends! The time capsule scene was hilarious and his children's book had me laughing! The wimpy kid books are shorter than the ones that I usually read but I still enjoyed it!

                  I think this book is a good book because it shows a funny view of life as a kid. The ending was also funny because a bunch of things happened to make Greg embarrassed at the end. I think all kids should read this book.

                      This book was humorous........Laugh Out Loud.... I recommend this book ( and the whole series) to middle-schoolers... ( of course because Greg, the main character, is a middle-schooler.)
