Book Description

5 Feb 2009

Rodrick Rules is the hilarious sequel to bestselling and award-winning Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Perfect for readers of 8+, reluctant readers and all the millions of Wimpy Kid fans out there. Rodrick Rules was also a major movie hit at the box-office and the rib-tickling third Wimpy Kid movie, Dog Days released in the UK in August 2012!

Whatever you do, don't ask Greg about his summer vacation because he definitely doesn't want to talk about it . . .

It's a brand-new year and a brand-new journal and Greg is keen to put the humiliating (and secret!) events of last summer firmly behind him.

But someone knows everything - someone whose job it is to most definitely not keep anything embarrassing of Greg's private - his big brother, Rodrick. How can Greg make it through this new school year with his not-quite-cool reputation intact?

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 18 April 2008
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good funny book for boys 18 Nov 2009
By meme
Format:Paperback
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.

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!

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.
