The third installment in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney is "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw". As the first two books, this books is also a fun-read and follows the journey of Greg Heffley, a middle school, goofy kid. The author and cartoonist, Jeff Kinney, has done a good job on the embarrassing and hilarious cartoons.
I think people sometimes need such books, just to make them laugh out loud, and know about how children think. Really, what good is a book, if it doesn't make you happy? In that aspect, this is a good book. Jeff Kinney definitely knows how to make people laugh, forgetting their surroundings. Trust me, I have a first hand experience on this.
Recommended to adults, who need a break, from their daily routine.
The New York Times, which rates children's serials collectively on a "Series Books" bestseller list, has included the Wimpy Kid series for 64 weeks as of April 10, 2010.
