Description

It says that the book is about Greg and Rowley making a movie together, but that doesn't happen until the very end. It has a poorly written plot, you could even say there was no plot and there really wasn't the kind of "Jeff Kinney" word choice you'd see from a "Jeff Kinney" book. Greg's Grandpa isn't shown living with the Heffleys anymore, despite living with them in the previous book. Hopefully Kinney keeps his humor in his next book, but creates a stronger and more interesting plot.

Greg ultimately ends up grounded by Frank as he mistakenly believes Greg backed out and decided to waste time by goofing off instead of performing. As if that's not scary enough, Halloween's just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle. The scene where Greg "blaps" in band class is currently the only known time where he actually poops his pants in the books (even if it isn't outright mentioned).When Greg finds an old video camera in his basement, he thinks he may have discovered just the thing to prove he’s got big-time talent. His mum thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his “creative side”. The fun is watching a kid who is average at best, and honestly pretty clueless and selfish, muddle his way around. There's is the most outrageous pet, the Pig, which the family adopted him since the last book ( are these considered spoilers?

Greg saying that sometimes in later seasons of TV shows, a new main character is introduced to bump up the ratings is easily a reference to shows like Scooby-Doo, Fairly Oddparents and the Brady Bunch.On his way to the stage another kid in the band, Jake McGough intentionally gives Greg a flat tire and when he stops to fix his shoe, he ends up locked in the room. Greg later discusses how the Spinetickler's books give him nightmares and how he regrets reading them, like the dream he got a tail and people were jealous of him. I keep reading these books like an idiot thinking that there is going to be something new, something unique, something funny. At the beginning of the book, protagonist Greg Heffley can be seen talking about how he thinks his life is a reality TV show, and how he thinks Rodrick, Manny, and all the other people in his life are just actors and robots, similar to the plot of The Truman Show. So the moms (Greg's mom and the mother of the boy who found the balloon) set up a "play date" for the boys.

Another book in the franchise with few original ideas which I liked and found funny and was a nice stress buster and overall relatable in a way. Jeff Kinney has achieved that rare feat of writing a children's series which is enjoyed equally by adults. Usually the humor is always great in this series but I could not see any funny humor in this book, I never thought anything was funny and I thought it was just poorly written. His mom thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his ‘creative side’.

Frank gets mad at Greg for making the mess, and Susan later gets mad, because Greg and Rowley filmed right over a tape of Manny's first steps. I thought the book was amazing there is a balloon contest where Gregory balloon fell down the balloon when someone found expected a cash reward but Never got it.
