It is all about the hilarious incidents happen during the road trip of Heffley family. The protagonist, Greg Heffley, feels that something inevitable is going to happen and that wouldn't be good. Even though he doesn't want to go for the road trip along with his family, he is compelled to join them. As usual, their journey starts off with full of promises but unfortunately what awaits them are petrol station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, car accidents and a runaway pig. The journey takes several wrong turns and things change upside down exactly opposite to what Greg has imagined of a good family road trip. So many weird and unexpected events occur and Greg discovers lots of things during this journey. The author convincingly narrates how a worst road trip can turn up into a great adventurous trip with the help of good humour and amazing graphics.
