    When Greg finds an old video camera in his basement, he thinks he may have discovered just the thing to prove he's got big-time talent. With the help of his best friend, Rowley, Greg hatches a plan to make a scary movie . . . and to become rich and famous in the process. I loved this book!

      This book was pretty good. It was about Greg and his family, like always, and his mom thinks that video games are turning his brain to mush. Read the book to find out

                  Greg Heffley is perplexed. He has always viewed himself as a special and unique individual, so why doesn't he at least have his own TV show by now? The only price of celebrity would be having to share his fame with his siblings, of course, but Greg is sure he could work something out. Desperate to be the center of attention, Greg decides to make a film with ketchup, a fake skull, a sweatshirt, gummy worms, and one actor. Can Greg pull this reach-for-the-stars goal off? Jeff Kinney's slapstick humor will brighten readers' lives once more with Greg's new adventure.

                    Greg Heffley is super good at video games, however his mom wants to see the creative side of him. His mom decides he can't play anymore video games for a while. Halloween is also coming up, and Greg gets an idea when he discovers a bag of gummy worms. He calls his best friend Rowley over, and they try to make a movie to become rich and famous. Greg's parents aren't home, so he is safe for now with his plan. But then Rowley is stuck in a tree, and Greg's dad happens to come home at that moment. Now Greg is in big trouble. This book is very funny, and I recommend it to comedy readers, and people who enjoy the other Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, and the Dork Diaries series. I rate it 5/5.
