All Of The Books
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.
Rodrick 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 out.
This is the End The 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.
