Check out Kidzworld’s review of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the hilarious bestselling book by Jeff Kinney.

Author: Jeff Kinney

What’s life like for a middle school kid who ranks around 52nd on the popularity totem pole? Not too good…at least for Greg Heffley. Fortunately for his readers, he’s kept a journal of all his embarrassing moments throughout the year, complete with hilarious cartoons.

Cheese Touch

In Greg’s journal, you’ll find encounters with bullies, the school principal, and of course the moldy cheese that’s been sitting on the basketball court since last spring. It took one curious student to poke the cheese to start the school-wide “Cheese Touch”—a new take on cootie catching.


Holidays

Greg’s journal describes his disappointing holidays: his Halloween spent first trick-or-treating with his five year old brother, and then running from a truckload of teenagers armed with water-filled fire extinguishers; and his Christmas where the only gift he didn’t receive was the one thing he asked for.


Friendly Adventures

Greg’s best friend Rowley is about 150th on the popularity totem pole. The two do everything together, from playing video games to creating a haunted house in Rowley's basement and charging two dollars a pop (that is, until Rowley’s father discovers their money making scheme and shuts down the operation). They attempt to set the world record for biggest snowman, start a comic strip for their school newspaper where every punch line is “zoo-wee, Mama!”, and sign up to be safety patrol officers (which may not sound cool, but with the free hot chocolate and excuse to miss half their pre-algebra class, signing up was a no brainer.)


Tough Life

Life in middle school is tough, especially for scrawny kids like Greg. With a dimwitted best friend and the kind of parents who insist you participate in the school play, the chance of getting through middle school embarrassment-free is slim to none.


The Bottom Line

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid is downright hilarious. With funny, sarcastic cartoons on every page, you’ll be laughing your pants off from start to finish. But the laughs don’t have to stop there. You can also check out the other books in the series: Rodrick Rules and The Last Straw.
