    This book is about Greg learning to grow up. It's hard to aim in the bathroom, so he and the boys in the family want to get urinals. Greg also has a hard time with other stuff:fighting, hair, and more. How will Greg through life when he keeps worrying? I loved this funny book, and I'm sure you will too.
