Robot Robbery is a good story because there's a good robot in it named Jay and there's a bad guy in it
named Filch.   Filch tries to program Jay, the robot, to rob a bank.  Read this exciting story to find out if Jay 
really does rob the bank.

Reviewed by Jack on 01/11/13
This is the seventh book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. This book starts out with Greg telling the story of when he was born. He came out 3 weeks early. He got a lot of hand-me-downs from his older brother. Then we get to present day. It is February and there is going to be a dance at school on Valentine's Day to raise money for the school. Greg is looking for a date to bring to the dance. He ends up finding one but they go as a friends group with his best friend Rowley too. They go out to dinner before the dance. They go to a nice dinner place and he has to wear sportscoat but they leave because Greg doesn't want to. So they go to a trashy place. At the end he gets Chicken Pox.
