The Long Haul

I received my copy from the publisher

Diary of a Wimpy Kid book 9

The Heffleys are heading out on a road trip, not that this is something Greg thinks is going to be a good or fun thing. It all starts off pretty much as Greg expects, pretty chaotic, not brilliant but better than it could have been. Things quickly turn terrible though as their road trip is filled with uncomfortable travelling conditions, worse sleeping conditions, mad seagulls, unexpected and hungry piglets, lost property and car accidents. There is a high point, when Greg finally gets to go to a water park, but even that doesn’t turn out so well.
The tried and true Wimpy Kid format proves that it still works. This instalment is full of silly fun and takes the Heffleys out of their home comfort zone. Everyone knows road trips either make or break families and in this case it is very possible this family won’t be heading out on any more. A fun read and perhaps a few pointers for Mum and Dad on what not to do if planning a family road trip.

Winnie Under the Sea

By: Valerie Thomas

Illustrated By: Korky Paul

Winnie has decided it is time for a holiday, so she picks an dislan, packs her bags and cat and flies off. Winnie loves swimming beneath the waves, Wilbur not so much, so Winnie changes him into a fish. When she sees him having so much fun she changes herself into a different sea creature. Disaster strikes when she loses grip of her wand. Will she be able to find it and is there another way to explore the wonders of the sea?

A fun adventure with that quirky, wacky Winnie. These books are always entertaining and Paul’s illustrations are detailed, distinctive and perfect for the strangely appealing Winnie. I really like these books.
