A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you're the Heffleys.

The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig—not exactly Greg Heffley's idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure—and this is one the Heffleys won't soon forget.

The Diary of Wimpy Kid series of books, by best-selling author Jeff Kinney, charts the highs and lows of our middle school hero, Greg, as he stumbles and fumbles from childhood to teenhood via school-hood. Sometimes helped by his friends and family, often not helped by himself!

        Take it from me, these books are my absolute guilty pleasure. Incredibly humorous, as are the rest of the collection. Buy this for your children, or if you love all books, give it a go. Greg Heffley will knock you off your feet!

          Comments about The Long Haul:

          This is a great book for reluctant readers who prefer pictures and humour to get them reading. Great series. Many authors have tried to copy this series but no one else does it so well. My grandchildren wait impatiently for each new book as it comes out.
