Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days – Giveaway! (ends 8/6/12)

My husband and I LOVE Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I think more so than our kids do. LOL! It all started years ago when my daughter brought home the original book from the school’s book fair. She loved the book and begged me to get her the next one in the series. Our son, who is pretty much a non-reader, also read the book and loved it. Our of curiosity my husband read the book too and he loved it. 🙂 Since then my family has read all the books. Personally I haven’t read the books but I’ve seen both of the movies and loved them. My husband and I are actually excited about the new movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, which comes to theaters on August 3, 2012.

I hope they are able to make all of the books into movies. Judging by how grown up the kids are starting to look I worry that it might not be possible. The actor who plays Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon) looks a bit different then he did from the last film. Thankfully Rowley (Robert Capron) is still adorable.

Check out this trailer for the film. If you are reading this via e-mail you can find the trailer here, http://bit.ly/LL0al5.


Here is a brief description of the new movie.

During his summer vacation, “Wimpy Kid” Greg Heffley, the hero of the phenomenally successful book series, hatches a plan to pretend he has a job at a ritzy country club – which fails to keep him away from the season’s dog days, including embarrassing mishaps at a public pool and a camping trip that goes horribly wrong.

I cannot wait to see this movie. The last film, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules was actually funnier than the original film. I am hopeful that this movie will be even funnier.

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books are written by Jeff Kinney. Book number 7 will be released this November. It’s entitled Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel. Will Greg find true love, or will Rowley beat him to it?

According to the official Wimpy Kid website, www.WimpyKid.com, Dog Days is a combination of both of his books, Dog Days and The Last Straw.

Also on the website you can watch the trailer for the film as well as grab some FREE downloads. You can also create your own Wimpy Kid character from the movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid at Wimp Yourself.
