About this deal

As if that's not scary enough, Halloween's just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle.

He settles for a French horn, but realizes that he will not be invited due to not playing a woodwind instrument. At school, Greg turns in his balloon and wins the candy corn, which is discovered and eaten by the family's pet pig. The complaints from moral guardians surrounding Underpants Bandits and Spinetinglers is a parody of the complaints surrounding Captain Underpants, by Dav Pilkey and Goosebumps by R. There's is the most outrageous pet, the Pig, which the family adopted him since the last book ( are these considered spoilers? At home, Greg finds an off-limits bag of chocolate chips and realizes that he will get in trouble after eating them.Greg is later harassed at school by the boys because they didn't like Susan's changes to the the party. Rowley runs out of the house with barely any clothes just as Frank gets home, and a news crew captures the whole moment. Greg remembers about Rodrick having a wolf mask he wore one Halloween, and he and Rowley go to the basement room to get it while trying to, the witch goes off and one of the shelves comes falling down on them.

It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. He practices the French Horn but hates it and wants to quit, angering Frank who tells Greg that he can't because that was an expensive instrument and he has to honor his commitment to the instrument. 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.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. The fun is watching a kid who is average at best, and honestly pretty clueless and selfish, muddle his way around.

The Wimpy Kid books are certainly written with elementary and middle schoolers in mind, but I still enjoy them.This series was cutting edge ten years ago, but now it has become so over- played I feel like Diary of a Wimpy Kid is ripping off Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Because if Greg learned (how to talk to girls, what his parents really meant, how to be a good friend), there would be an end to this series. Then he talks about the school's Balloon Brigade, which is a school contest to see how far a student's balloon can travel, and how the prize is a giant bag of candy corn. He also says that when Manny played soccer, his team never got a goal, due to Tucker, the goalie spending the rest of soccer stuffing grass in his belly button. Grab a flashlight, crawl under the covers, and dive into the twisted, unexpectedly hilarious world of Rowley Jefferson’s imagination.

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'. After the party, Greg loses interest in playing the French horn, but is made to play in a school concert by his father Frank.

However the people that found the balloon were people that didn't have tv or electronic games of any sort.
