BOOK NAME: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw
AUTHOR: Jeff Kinney
This is the third of four books that I know of about Greg Heffley, The Wimpy Kid. I’ve read all but one of the books and I like them all. Even though each book has “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” in the title, Greg makes it clear at the start of each one that the book is NOT a diary, but a journal. He explains that diaries are for writing down your feelings and others might think he’s a sissy if they see him carrying around a diary. So his books are journals, which just tell about what happens in his life.
In the beginning of this book, Greg is always accidentally making his dad mad by doing things like watching TV rather than going outside to play and making noises at night that wake up his dad. In the book, Greg admits to having a crush on a classmate named Holly Hills so he tries to make her have a crush on him by doing goofy things, like telling jokes. It doesn’t work. Greg then meets a girl named Trista and he ends up falling in love with her. He plans to bring her to his friend Rowley’s pool for a date, but he runs out of paper in his journal before he tells what happens.
I like the Wimpy Kid books because they are funny and they give me ideas for pranks and jokes to do with my friends, my dad, my mom and my brothers. If Greg were real, I’d like to play with him.
BOOK NAME: Ivy + Bean
AUTHOR: Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall
This is a story about two kids who were never meant to like each other, but became best friends. You see, Ivy and Bean are total opposites. Ivy is a girly girl, a bookworm and always wears pink. Bean is a tomboy, sporty and is always getting into a little bit of trouble. They are total opposites.
This book follows Bean as she plays tricks on her older sister. During one of these tricks, Bean escapes into Ivy’s backyard. This is where the unlikely friends meet. Soon, Bean discovers that Ivy thinks she is a wizard and can put spells on people. Bean tries to get Ivy to put a spell on Bean’s older sister, Nancy. Bean wants the spell to make Nancy to embarrass herself in front of all her friends.
Ivy & Bean go try to collect all the stuff they need for the spells. On the list were worms, dead frogs and lots of cool other stuff. But in the end, they see Nancy having a tough time and decide that a spell isn’t such a good idea.
I liked this book because it seemed like real life. I have an older sister just like Bean does. And sometimes I pull tricks on her just like Bean does to Nancy. But in the end, I don’t really want my sister to be hurt, sad or upset and that is also what Bean decided. It was also fun because even though Ivy and Bean were very different they stayed good friends.
