About The Book
The book starts with Greg explaining how bad
his summer vacations were with his brother Rod
rick annoying him, who knows a secret that
Greg is trying to keep. After Rodrick puts him in
the back of his van and finds every speed bump
in the town, he drops Greg off to school, but
Greg finds out he still has the Cheese Touch from
last year. He gets away with passin it on to a new
kid. Later, it is clear that Greg and Rodrick are
always broke, so Mom starts a "Mom Bucks” to
get Greg and Rodrick to get along with each
other. Rodrick, at first, mismanages the money
on his Heavy Metal magazines, while Greg
carefully manages the cash.

later pretends to have the flu, and
after Mom and Dad leave the house, he
calls every friend he knows, and has a
party. A month later, Greg notices Rowley
has play money identical to that of "Mom
Bucks" and takes it home to put under his
mattress. When Greg fails to do his history
homework, he must borrow an assignment
from Rodrick and pay him $20,000 in Mom
Bucks. Unfortunately, Mom finds out about
the stolen Mom Bucks when Rodrick tries to
cash in the lot and she confiscates all of
Greg's Mom Bucks, including his real ones.
 After
Thanksgiving, Rodrick's party is uncovered
by a photo and he is grounded for a month.
Greg is accused of being an 'accomplice' to
Rodrick, and is banned from playing video
games for two weeks, even though he had been
locked in the basement the whole time and had
nothing to do with the party. Rodrick then starts
preparing for the talent show, despite his
punishment (he wasn't allowed to leave the
house and was specifically told not to go to the
show). Dad then ends his punishment two weeks
early because he hated listening to Rodrick's
band, Löded Diper, play every day. After Greg
hurts Rowley by putting a dumbbell in a pillow
that Rowley kicks during a sleepover, Greg must
perform in the talent show with a first-grader,
Scotty Douglas, who Rowley was partners with.
Dad tries to persuade to Rodrick to give up the show,
but Rodrick insists on doing it, so that he can send it to
record label companies and bail out of school so he
and Löded Diper can get noticed. During the talent
show, Rodrick has his band's performance taped so
he can send it to the record companies, but the
video is rendered useless after it is found that Mom
(who was taping the video) had talked the whole
time and everything she said was heard on the tape.
Rodrick accuses Greg and they get into a fight, but
their parents send both to their rooms. Later, Rodrick
has spilled the beans on what happened over the
summer. Greg says that at Leisure Towers, the
retirement house where their grandfather lives,
Rodrick took Greg’s diary and made a run for it, but
tripped on a board game. Greg grabbed the diary,
ran to the toilet, and tried to destroy it. Unfortunately,
he found out he’s in the ladies bathroom and is pulled

story end’s with Greg helping Rodrick
with his science project for school called
Do Plants Sneeze?, because he feels sorry
for the video of Löded Diper at the talent
show which has been an worldwide
internet hit due to his mom dancing in it.
