Join wimpy kid Greg Heffley in another year of embarrassing events and hilarious cartoons. Check out the second Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Rodrick Rules.

Author: Jeff Kinney

After a particularly embarrassing summer, Greg Heffley is eager to go back to school. Unfortunately, the moment he arrives, his classmates avoid him. Why? Because he still has the “Cheese Touch” from last year (he was the last to touch the moldy, furry, stinky cheese that rotted for years on the school’s basketball court). Fortunately, he welcomed the new kid with a hardy pat on the back, putting his cheese touch days behind him.


O' Mighty Rodrick

This year, Greg’s journal entries focus on his family. His brother Rodrick is a lazy, scamming, drum-playing slacker of a teenager. And unfortunately he’s the only person who knows about Greg’s embarrassing summer. If Greg wants to keep his secret safe, he has to treat Rodrick like a God.


Basement Party

When their parents go away overnight, Rodrick throws a party. Instead of calling his parents, Greg stands by hoping to experience his first real high school party. But in one quick trip to the icy cold basement, Greg finds himself locked in for the night. The only high school party he gets to experience is the morning after clean up! And if Greg refuses to clean, Rodrick will spread the details of his summer horror story throughout the entire school.


Mother Mayhem

Greg’s mother is no picnic either. She constantly interferes, following him to his friends house to observe their board games, making him to take drum lessons from Rodrick, forcing him to assist a first grader in a magic act for the talent show (talk about humiliating!), and sending him to his Grandpa’s old folks condo—the place where Greg's most embarrassing moment occurred.


The Bottom Line

Rodrick Rules is just as witty and hilarious as the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Greg acts wimpier than ever as he tries to keep his secret safe. But he can’t tiptoe around his brother forever. Watch what happens as Greg’s embarrassing secret unfolds. Don’t miss Jeff Kinney’s third illustrated adventure—Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw!

Does any of you have a great childhood? Well, I don't have most bad childhood, but back then I don't have any friends and nobody to play with. I don't have many friends in these days too. And that makes me empty inside. How about you?
