Guest Blogger Gillian: 10 year old’s Review of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules


If you liked Jeff Kinney’s last book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, then you will love the sequel Rodrick Rules. This book also looks like a kid’s diary. Gregory, the main character, tells about his summer and his first days at high school. He also tells great stories about troubles with his little brother Manny.

His stories will make you laugh out loud, so hard that people will think that you are crazy. This book is one of the greatest books that I have ever read. It is good for people who like humorous books. I would highly recommend it. If you like this book, you may also want to try Sideways Stories From Wayside School by Louis Sachar.

Guest Blogger: 10 Year Old’s Review of Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

21mytgj3nxl_aa115_.jpgHave 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!
