The Deep End, book 15 of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is out and it’s made a splash with an RV adventure. Award winning New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Jeff Kinney has once again delivered an hilarious read that is sure to keep a middle grade reader hooked.

Greg Heffley and his family hit the road for a campervan adventure like no other. There’s nothing worse than having to live with your whole family in your grandmother’s basement while your house is being built. To escape the boredom the Heffley family score a campervan and hit the road. With no destination planned, they set out to become explorers and end up in Camp Eden, an RV park. The family encounter all sorts of comical situations until the floods come and the RV floats away. Can the Heffley family save their vacation? You’ll have to dive in and find out.

Jeff Kinney has cleverly tapped into what’s on trend at the moment. RV campervans have become hugely popular with families to explore the countryside. Kids will love this. The language is perfect for a middle grade audience and believable. The humour is enhanced with the cartoon drawings that make the book a fun place to be. The character of Greg Heffley is well developed and the reader can easily become a part of his world.
