This book... Eeehhh. Funny but not the best
In Dog Days, Greg expects to stay home all summer and do nothing but play video games. His mom urges him to try to get out of the house, but he doesn't want to because from his experience.
When he and Rowley go to Rowley's country club, they bring a girl, Trista, along, but then she starts talking to some lifeguard and ignores the people who took her there. One unlucky day, Rowley's dad shows up at Greg's house and expects Greg to pay for all the smoothies he's ordered at the country club. Greg and Rowley start a lawn mowing business. A customer shows up and Greg gives her bad quality lawn mowing. Then his dad comes and finishes the job, but the lady now despises Greg. All these fortunate events make him more want to stay home for the rest of the summer. But as with all his plans, everything goes exactly the opposite. There a lot of unfortunate events happening to Greg but you have to read it to believe it!
This book was a really entertaining book but was it the best book in the world? No.
I would recommend this book to 3rd graders only because the cheesy humor Jeff Kinney, the author, puts in. Also I would want to let others know that this book has some great value because it's very common for kids to be lazy during the summer, like Greg, but it does show that Greg put in an effort of trying to do something productive while having fun.
