Book Description

3 July 2008 Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Book 1)

The hilarious and original global bestseller Diary of a Wimpy Kid - perfect for readers of 8+ and also reluctant readers, everyone loves the adventures of Greg Heffley. You can also discover Diary of a Wimpy Kid on the big screen in the major motion blockbusting Wimpy Kid Movie franchise.

Let me get something straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary. This was Mom's idea, not mine. But if she thinks I'm going to write down my "feelings" in here or whatever, she's crazy.

The only reason I agreed to do this at all is because I figure later on when I'm rich and famous, this book is gonna come in handy.

But for now I'm stuck with a bunch of morons.

Today is the first day of school, so I figured I might as well write in this book to pass the time.

Just don't expect me to be all "Dear Diary" this and "Dear Diary" that.

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
If you haven't had a good laugh lately, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is your source for timeless humor.

There's a particular goofiness about boys in middle school that drives parents crazy but has to delight when considered from a distance such as through reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Jeff Kinney captured that goofiness with a tongue-in-cheek irreverence that will amuse anyone reading this book.

This is a graphic novel, but not the slick sort that you see from Japan. Instead, Mr. Kinney imitates the style that a middle school boy with good printing skills might use in displaying this simulated diary in the form of Greg Heffley's journal.

Greg is a middle child as well as a middle schooler. His older brother Rodrick can't be bothered with Greg except when the temptation to torture occurs to Rodrick. His younger brother Manny is the apple of his parents' eyes and is spoiled rotten.

Greg has a few, simple needs to satisfy: Avoiding touching the cheese that's been on blacktop since the prior spring, not getting beaten up by bigger kids, playing his favorite video games (which his parents don't approve of), avoiding embarrassment, and getting credit for doing something right. Parents, teachers, fellow students, and fate conspire to thwart Greg. But Greg has one ace in the hole . . . his friend Rowley is even more of a loser than Greg is. And Greg exploits Rowley for all he's worth. The gags are often based on the results not turning out as Greg anticipated.

The book has many funny parts that will have you laughing out loud. Occasionally, Mr. Kinney goes over the top and employs too much self-satire. But the story is quickly rescued by going back into straight satire.

I derived special pleasure from the book by recounting the adventures of one of my sons and his best friend at this same age. That gave me many more things to laugh about.

3.0 out of 5 stars Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book Review 27 Dec 2012
By Ana
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was quite enjoyable. I enjoyed the humour and comic strips in it. I didn't enjoyed the part about the cheese as it made me feel slightly sick.

5.0 out of 5 stars big hit!! 3 Aug 2012
By Lea
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my nephew who is 10 and he loved it. It's difficult to engage my nephew as he has Aspergers condition but he was captured by this book due to all the funny illustrations on each page. Even I found it funny when I was flicking through some pages of this book in Asda when deciding to buy from Amazon for a better deal! ha ha

i bought this book for my seven year old son, and decided to read a bit on the train home..... i would like to think of lots of clever things to say, but this book is just really funny. My son loved it too, and actually asked me if he could read for a bit longer! The comic style illustrations are also great fun. I recommend this book to anyone aged anything!
