" Another funny and great chapter in the life of Greg Heffley! Jeff Kinney perfectly sums up what it is like to go on vacation with kids! The high expectations, the perfect family photo ops, the scenery, the chance to relax and come together as a family; when in reality it's Hell on earth!!! Thank you for the laughs! " said.

" With the holidays approaching faster than the Heffleys can get the decorations up, the family decides to take an all-inclusive trip to a tropical vacation resort to the dismay of Greg who likes staying at home. With his first trip in an airplane and all the mishaps that can possibly happen at family beach resort, this story was awkward, fun, and fast paced. " said.

" My students have been so excited about this book, I decided to read it myself. I have only read the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, but this one seemed inferior. It's basically Greg complaining about a family vacation for the entire book. There are some funny parts, but overall it was pretty dull. Hopefully my students will like it better. " said.

" One of the lesser entries in the series, this book seems to be written with a made-for-TV movie in mind, resulting in a rather unstructured story full of stilted situations and generic humour. Fans of the series will enjoy it, though after a relatively strong 11th book in the series, #12 is a disappointment. " said.

"The first part of this book had me cringing and tense as Greg experienced EVERYTHING I hate about air travel. So well done, Jeff Kinney, for making that so believable and putting me right in it.
Overall-funny, typical terrible Manny (that kid's the worst), Rodrick is becoming more likable, and, as my husband said "you need to be willing to put aside disbelief to fully enjoy this one." That's true. But yes, very enjoyable. Those poor Heffleys just can't catch a break. Is it the best children's book I've ever read? Certainly not. Does it need to be? Nope.

"This book covers one week when the Heffleys go on a family vacation over Christmas, to the resort where the parents spent their honeymoon. Of course, things never go smoothly for Greg, so the trip is full of "disasters" like airplane delays, lost luggage, expedition mishaps, and encounters with all types of nature.

This might be my favorite Diary book yet. Of course it follows Kinney's typical humorous storylines, but I loved the addition of the rest of the family starting to rebel a bit. I can't wait to see if that trend continues to future installments of the series.

" I can't decide if this book made me want to go on a tropical vacation, or avoid it altogether haha. Another funny, relatable tale of the Heffley family. Greg comparing the iguanas to Jurassic Park? I immediately had to text my aunt, who had said something similar in Mexico. And I loved that he was so excited about the bathrobe. I could do without the spider, but thankfully Jeff Kinney's illustrations don't make it too scary. All in all, another win for the Wimpy Kid series. " said.

"This book was awesome! So awesome I read it in one sitting!

I have loved the diary of a wimpy kid since I was nine years old. This book series, although not my favourite now, is very close to my heart, as I grew up and matured with Greg and the Heffley family.

Family isn't something that is normally seen in books. Mostly, the relationships that are focused on are romantic ones, and friendships, so to see a family dynamic in a book makes me so happy!

This book was laugh-out-loud hilarious and I really enjoyed every second. It was very fun to watch Greg go on holiday and discover paradise isn't all that it seems! Everything goes wrong! Tummy troubles, sun poisoning, huge spiders and even getting kicked out of the resort! I found this book so light-hearted and had a blast reading it!

Love lucy x
