The long haul (Diary of a wimpy kid) – Jeff Kinney

A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you’re the Heffleys.

The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig-not exactly Greg Heffley’s idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure-and this is one the Heffleys won’t soon forget.

The third wheel (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) – Jeff Kinney

A Valentine’s Day dance at Greg’s middle school has turned his world upside down. As Greg scrambles to find a date, he’s worried he’ll be left out in the cold on the big night. His best friend, Rowley, doesn’t have any prospects either, but that’s a small consolation.

An unexpected twist gives Greg a partner for the dance and leaves Rowley the odd man out. But a lot can happen in one night, and in the end, you never know who’s going to be lucky in love.

Matilda – Roald Dahl

Matilda is an extraordinarily gifted four-year-old whose parents, a crass, dishonest used-car dealer and a self-centered, blowsy bingo addict, regard her as “nothing more than a scab.”

Life with her beastly parents is bearable only because Matilda teaches herself to read, finds the public library, and discovers literature.

Also, Matilda loves using her lively intelligence to perpetrate daring acts of revenge on her father.

This pastime she further develops when she enrolls in Crunchem Hall Primary School, whose headmistress, MissTrunchbull, is “a fierce tyrannical monster . . . .”
