REVIEW: DIARY OF A WIMPY KID by Jeff Kinney

Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney (9-13)
Hardcover: 224 pages

Publisher: Harry N. Abrams (April 1 2007)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0810993139

I thought I could do Diary of a Wimpy Kid First because I kind of have that theme going on my blog!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is  VERY funny. The main character, Greg, is self centered and some of the situations Greg gets into are weird   random interesting. He has a friend, Rowley, who is a little............ young for his age. Fregley is an odd ball, that is all I can say about him! Then Greg's little brother, Manny, is the favorite in the Heffly Family so Greg is always a little down.

Basically, it talks about Greg's life in middle school (Junior High) as a student and some of the problems he has and how he overcomes them, all with a crazy sense of humour!  This is something every kid can relate to.

I give this book:
5/5  Blabbies!

The movie is a good interpretation of the book, and it was cool to see a book that I loved up on the screen.  It turned out exactly how I imagined it!  Here is the trailer, check it out!

My 9-year-old daughter loves this series! I've only read one of the books, but I really enjoyed the movie. I thought it was hilarious.
