It's DIARY OF A WIMPY KID #2, and I can't wait to read #3. These books are fantastic. The tales and adventures of Greg Heffley and his creative illustrations are well worth your time.

Greg begins his second diary. He almost decided it wasn't worth it after Rodrick got his hands on the first diary, but once again he writes about his frustrations with his older brother, Rodrick, and his younger brother, Manny. Greg reveals all the embarrassing encounters involving his mother's determination to butt into his life. He also includes tales of his bumpy relationship with his best friend, Rowley.

Imaginative cartoon drawings combined with fresh, wacky humor make the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: RODRICK RULES popular with even the most sophisticated readers in my middle school. Everyone considers it just plain fun to read. Anyone who is currently striving to survive middle school, or anyone who remembers the pain, is sure to appreciate the good-natured humor in Jeff Kinney's creative series.

My son is 11, like most boys he doesn't like reading. This book, like all others in the series, is funny with lots of pictures, and it talks about children about my son's age and things they encountered. My son reads it again & again, and laughs everytime, he also read out to me so I can laugh with him! I think this book + its series are good for encouraging children to read, particularly for those who are not keen in reading. I bought all the books in the series, and my son loves it all and still reading them repeatedly. Can't wait for the next one to come out.

Format: DVD
Greg (Zachary Gordon) has moved on to the seventh grade. He hangs out with his wimpy friends. The new girl in school is Holly Hills(Peyton List). She has long blond hair and has captured everyone's attention. Greg's friend Rowley (Robert Capron) says, "She's as pretty as my mom," in an awkward Freudian moment. Greg's parents are the stereotypical embarrassing parents. Greg and his older brother Roderick bond in this film as they share a secret. Roderick (Devon Bostick) who is part of a garage rock band, "Loded Diper"[sic] gives his brother advice on how to get Holly's attention. And there is a talent contest in town...Rachel Harris plays the mom. She is made to look like Tina Fey in a non-threatening way. She like movies were the man chooses the maid over the super model.

The movie contains pranks. The boys misbehave in ways we wish our kids would only misbehave. Good movie for family night entertainment as it was amusing and palatable for adults.

Diary of a wimpy kid Rodrick rules is an excelent book. It brings to life the story of a young boy called Greg Heffley who is in middle school. Greg has a best friend called Rowley who is always embarrasing him in public. But what seems to be the case is that rowley gets all the good things in life and Greg doesn't. All of the ups and downs in his life are expressed in the story and it makes this book great. The style the book is written in is exactly how you would expect a young boy to write. The story can be very funny at times and is definitely worth a read. Jeff Kinney is a great author and it's hard to believe he can come up with all these weird and wonderful things to happen in Greg's life. All the books in the series are great and, personally, I can't wait for another book to be published!

13 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 2 April 2008
Format: Hardcover
Diary of a Wimpy Kid was a breakout success in bringing kid humor into classic situations and an appealing format. One of my concerns about reading Rodrick Rules was whether there would be enough classic kid problems to fill another book with side-splitting laughter. Well, some of the best gags are gone but some pretty good ones are left.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid featured humor built from not wanting to touch a piece of rotten cheese. There's no exact equivalent that's as funny Rodrick Rules, but the continuing saga of being dominated by an obnoxious older brother certainly will evoke memories and laughs among those who were a younger brother or the parent of two or more boys.

As in most families, both boys have something they can use to blackmail the other. But Rodrick is much better than Greg at fighting for dominance. What Rodrick has on Greg is truly funny, the sort of thing that would deeply embarrass any middle school boy.

There's lots of contact between the two boys because their parents want to bring them together. I could relate to the sorts of things I tried to use to create peace between two teenage boys . . . that didn't work.

One of the on-going gags involves Rodrick's band and his parents fear of where this could all lead. Any family that's ever had a garage or basement band will relate to this part of the book.

I was also amused to see the book address that perpetual middle school challenge . . . how to pass without doing any work.

This is great fun, just not as side-splitting as Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Format: Paperback
Meet Greg Heffley, a teenaged boy who is a 100% accident prone (which isn't such a gift when you live with his family...a single mistake can mean BIG trouble). This time he is back in the second Diary of a Wimpy Kid book with more jokes, stories and Greg's fabulous cartoons filled with humour. But you'd better be careful which page you touch as Greg still has the lurgy of the cheese touch!

Greg's older brother Rodrick now knows two of Greg's biggest secrets. One, is the existence of his diary. And the second, is the story about the kiss of death. The worst thing that can possibly happen to him (after death) is people knowing that he keeps a diary. This book is filled with surprising twists and there is a mere amount of things you can be sure of whilst reading it. But there is one thing that you can be sure of...there is no brotherly love between him and Rodrick.

Think he's in enough of a crisis? Well, think again. Aside from Rodrick there's Manny. Greg's three-year-old brother who would do anything to tell on Greg. How can Greg's Mum and Dad let him get away with stuffing a chocolate-chipped cooking in the disc drive of his video game system? How can giving him a ball with toothpicks stuck into it make everything better? How can Greg's life get any worse?

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books are perfect reads on a wet boring day that will make your sides ache with laughter. I like the way Jeff Kinney made it into a mix of cartoons and text which spiced up the book and made Greg's character more fun and unique - it looks like a real diary or as Greg likes to call it 'a journal'.

It'd be a great present for someone who doesn't like to read novels yet or doesn't have a stretched amount of reading skills.
