Diary of a Wimpy Kid :: Rodrick Rules Book Review

Diary of a Wimpy Kid :: Rodrick Rules Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jan 27, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

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!

Unless you’re drawing out the animal’s death, wasting the potential resources it offers, or it’s an endangered species. Like with white tail deer, they’re already over populated, culling the population a little would help the ecosystem more than it would harm it. Just have respect for the life of the animal. Why isn’t the killing of the animal the issue for you? You say “have respect for the life of the animal” but you can’t do that while simultaneously killing said animal. If someone thinks it’s ok to kill the animal, they must have a difference between the animal and a human that justifies the killing. And if the difference was applied to a human, they must also accept killing them, otherwise it’s a contradiction. With all due respect, I believe it is possible. When I say "have respect for the life of the animal," I mean you should respect the fact that you are potentially taking a life, and that action should be justified. The killing of an animal isn't an issue for me if it is justified and absolutely necessary.  And yes, there is a difference between animals and humans. While we too are animals, we are significantly more developed intellectually and biologically in comparison to the majority of other species. This is a fact, and it's why many of us are so comfortable with killing wild animals-we feel disconnected to them except in certain cases, such as species like dolphins, apes, horses, and dogs. Does that mean we should value the lives of animals any less? No. But while animals are by nature more primal, that doesn't negate the fact that if they have proven to be a legitimate threat to the ecosystem and/or society, there shouldn't be an issue with killing them (ex. rabid animals beyond help). This isn't solely limited to animals either, you can see it in our own human society in many ways. For instance, our society executes people who have committed atrocities of the highest level, but we still value human life.

Hi! If you're reading this, could you please type in: photo:6446529 but add [ to the beginning and ] to the end (no spaces)? Thank you! This is an image embed test, if you're curious (seeing if anyone can use images that I upload around the forums) not sure where this went, so I put it in general :P
