Funniest Books In The Universe #3
There are comedy books intended for children, comedy books intended for adults and comedy books that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. One of the latter is Jeff Kinney`s Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul. Another road trip adventure, Greg Heffley`s journal entries tell us about a family road trip that, like U.F.O: Unavoidable Family Outing, just keeps getting worse and worse. Well, worse for THEM, that is. Everything starts off okay, but takes a dead-end turn when the family stays at the worlds worst hotel, another family`s kids ram a cleaning cart into a wall, Greg tells them off and narrowly escapes an encounter with the kid`s dad, who Greg names Mr Beardo. Then the Heffleys win a pig at a country fair and the pig causes so much trouble(including biting Greg`s finger). Then the parents wallets and phones get locked inside a locker at a water park and the key supposedly gets stolen. The family then decides to go home but even the return trip is not peaceful when Manny tries to run away and the dad meets Mr Beardo for the first time and(like Greg) narrowly escapes him. The best Diary of a Wimpy Kid book yet!
