"The Wimpy Kid books run like a well-oiled machine, paced perfectly
with witty lines, smart gags, and charming cartoons. Kinney knows
just where to put a joke, the precise moment to give a character
shading, and exactly how to get the narrative rolling, spinning out
the oddest plot developments. The appreciation Kinney has for these
characters seeps through the novels, endearing the Heffleys to
readers... A witty addition to the long-running series."
