Have you ever thought about keeping a diary? Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney is a really great book. On the inside, the book looks as if it’s someone’s real writing in a diary or a journal, like they wrote the book with a pen or pencil. There are illustrations that look like doodles and they are really cool.
Greg is a middle school student, and he’s not in the popular crowd. He plays a lot of video games and has a friend in the neighborhood that’s kind of a dork. His mom suggests that he keep a diary. He insists that it’s a journal, NOT a diary, because diaries are for girls. Greg has a big brother, Rodrick, who drives him nuts. Rodrick is in a band called Loaded Diaper, but spelled Loded Diper. Rodrick is not very smart. Rodrick plays pranks on Greg. Greg writes about everything from school to snow. He and his friend also make funny comic strips.
I liked this book for it’s humor and goofiness. Boys or girls would like this book because it’s LOL funny. There is a sequel coming out on February 1st, so if you like this one, you’ll want to get the next one, too.
I would like to thank Book Mama for telling my mom about this book. I loved it!
