The Lovereading4Kids comment

The ups and downs of Greg’s life are wittily exposed in his diary entries, which entertainingly capture the details of interactions with his family, his schools friends and, above all, his dad who is determined that Greg should improve himself – especially in fitness and sports. Can Greg outwit his dad and keep one step ahead off being sent off to military academy to be improved? Greg’s fittingly humorous illustrations to his diary add an extra dimension to the enjoyment.
