The third chapter in Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is here. Don’t miss the embarrassing moments and hilarious cartoons in The Last Straw.

Author: Jeff Kinney

It’s New Year’s Day and Greg Heffley’s parents are making their resolutions. His couch-potato mother plans to start hitting the gym, while his junkfood-junky father wants to go on a strict diet. Yeah right! In no time, his mother’s back in front of the TV and his father’s binging on Greg’s school snacks in the basement.


Toughen Up

Greg didn’t make a resolution this year. After all, he’s already the best he can be, aside from getting good grades and being athletic and being popular with the ladies, of course. Unfortunately, his father thinks there’s room for improvement. Especially compared to his boss’s sons who are tough sports fanatics. After catching Greg in his mother’s bathrobe and watching him spend fifteen minutes trying to summon the remote control with his mind, his father gets fed up. He signs Greg up for a soccer team. In no time, Greg becomes the team’s best benchwarmer and worst goalie.


Military School

Greg and his father run into Lenwood Heath, the worst behaved teenager on the block. Only now, Lenwood attends military school and works at a part-time job. Seeing his father’s delight, Greg knows the worst is coming—he’s going to sign him up for military school! Greg has to think of something…and fast! Or instead of enjoying a relaxing, video-game-playing summer, he’ll be doing sit-ups and push-ups at the break of dawn!


Holly Hills

Greg spends the year trying to avoid his problems—his late homework assignments, his pile of dirty laundry and his father’s constant attempt to shape him into a tough guy. But Greg’s got more important things to worry about, like getting Holly Hills, the prettiest girl in school, to notice him.


The Bottom Line

The Last Straw is the third book in the bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. And Greg Heffley is just as wimpy, clueless and outrageous as ever. And don't worry, even though its name suggests that The Last Straw is the final book in the series, it isn't! Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days will be on sale in October!

    Most Embarassing Moment With the 'Rents?

    • They kissed me in front of my friends at school.
    • They showed my BF/GF my naked baby pics.
    • They had my name announced on the PA system in Wal-Mart.
    • My 'rents aren't that embarrassing.
