International bestselling author Jeff Kinney is back with the sixteenth book in the hugely popular Wimpy Kid series - Big Shot. This time Greg Heffley has had a disastrous sports day at school and decides once and for all that sports are most definitely not for him. That is until his mother encourages him (forces him) to give it another go and he reluctantly tries out for the local basketball team, never thinking for a second he would make the grade.
Little does Greg know that this basketball team is the worst in the league and as such (to his utter dismay) he gets signed up to the team. The season kicks off and the chances of this team winning anything at all look extremely slim, but as we know anything is possible in the Wimpy Kid books and Greg finds himself holding the ball at a crucial moment in the game - will he seize the opportunity and become the team hero or will he blow his Big Shot?
The first book in the series to be based on a sports theme, this is another rip-roaringly funny and clever story from much-loved author Jeff Kinney.
