Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

However, his father wants him to go outside and stop playing video games, and his mother has her own plans, including a reading club. In addition, Greg can't get along with his father.

Let's go!




Help me! Help me!

Would you sign my yearbook?

Of course!

Holly, you didn't finish writing...

Isn't that your brother?

Lded Diper's coming to rock

a town near you!

You're getting your yearbooks signed?

That is so cute.

What the heck?

Honey, Greg was sick on picture day.

Did you send in a photo of him

for the yearbook?

Yeah! I remembered!

That's Heather Hills.

Get in.

But I need to finish

signing Greg's yearbook.

News flash. I don't care.


But you didn't...

So... Heather.

I'm going on a world tour with my band.

If you're around,

I could comp you chicks some tickets.

- Let's go.

- Wait! Holly!

She was trying to act cool,

but I know she was into me.

"Rowley, you are so cute."

Cute's underlined three times!

"Stay cool. XOXO, Holly."

What did she write in yours?

"Have a great summer.

You're such a good... friend."


Oh, man!

That's the kiss of death. "Friend".

That sucks!

Despite Rodrick's negative attitude,

I have very clear goals for the summer.

One, play video games.

Two, get together with Holly.

Or three, both at the same time.

Greg, you're an amazing gamer.

I know.

Our neighbors, the Warrens, have kids

that are the outdoorsy type.

That's okay, but...

my dad has this crazy idea

that physical exercise is normal.

Those guys are setting a bad example.

My dad has his eye on me,

so the key to a successful summer...

will be to stay one move ahead.

Those Warren boys

are already up, raring to go.

Our boys probably

won't even get up till noon.

I'm sorry. Did you say something?

What are you doing up?

It's the first day of vacation.

Did you think I'd just lie around all day?

Actually, that's exactly what I thought.

I can't find Manny's Tingy.

You know, it's probably time...
