From School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—When Greg’s mom, who’s obsessed with family time, insists on a road trip, things are bound to get interesting. With a pacifier-stealing pig, hungry seagulls, a broken-down car, and the Heffleys’ luck, this family vacation turns into a disaster that ends with a day at a water park. As a result, they’re stranded without any money, a long way from home. Will the Heffley family make it home? Narrator Ramon de Ocampo animates Kinney’s book. His intonations easily bring the author’s unique, realistic characters to life. His fast-paced, entertaining narrative style is ideal for Greg’s story and will have the whole family laughing out loud. Don’t miss this selection. VERDICT Great for reluctant readers, this latest “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” audiobook is a must-have for every library collection.—Jessica Moody, Olympus Jr. High, Holladay, UT –This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
“Every kid—and every parent—who’s ever suffered through a family road trip will feel as one with Greg.”
