The massively funny fifth book in the bestselling and award-winning Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.



Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it's cracked up to be?



Suddenly Greg is dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older. And after a fight with his best friend Rowley, it looks like Greg is going to have to face the "ugly truth" all by himself . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious - A Book To Share 10 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I eagerly anticipated this latest book in the Wimpy kid series. Greg is getting older now, and he is beginning to be confronted by the ugly truth about life. He has fallen out with Rowley, who has grown taller and sports his first zit like a badge of manhood. There is an uncle's annual wedding to go to, and in between are all the adventures that any middle school kid would get up to (I think he is about year 8 in UK terms).

These books are hilarious. The text is understated, written like a somewhat egocentric school kid might write, but the text is offset beautifully by the cartoons, and had me laughing out loud as I read the book.

I was lucky, because Amazon delivered this book a little early. I am not sure why, but already I have read it, my daughter has read it and today it went in to school to be shared with the rest of her class. This book is too good to keep to yourself, and an easy enough read that any child or young adult will have no problems getting in to it.

Thoroughly recommended. I would not suggest it as a Christmas present though - if my daughter's class is anything to go by, they will have all read it by December.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny! 16 May 2011
Format:Hardcover
Managed to keep my nine-year-old nephew entertained on a six hour journey to cornwall with this excellent book. Lovely to hear him chuckling in the back - we took it in turns to read and I found myself laughing along too! Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ugly Review 12 May 2011
Format:Hardcover
A review by Toby Head

This book is about kid in sixth grade called Greg Heffley who has a best friend called Rowley Jefferson .This Diary of a Wimpy Kid book is easy to get stuck into, you will need to get and read the other books before this one though.

This book includes all the naughty and fun things he gets up to. Greg also talks about his older brother,mum and dad,grandparents,classmates and teachers.Lucky for them this diary is secret as they really wouldn't want to know what Greg really thinks of them.

The book is written in the form of a diary and is divided into days and months,with lots of funny sketches to keep it interesting. There are 217 pages for you to laugh out loud. At the end there are fun quizzes to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars my son loved it! 13 Dec 2010
By BCT
Format:Hardcover
My ten year old son is a reluctant reader but he's loved the whole Wimpy Kid series. I bought book 4 and 5 for his birthday and he finished them both in a couple of weeks and really enjoyed reading them. I haven't read them myself but just seeing him enjoying them is good enough for me. I think he enjoyed the fact that the book wasn't covered in small print but had a few drawings in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid 7 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my grandsons birthday, he can't get enough of them. From a child who we really had to push to practice his reading we can't get him to stop since he discovered 'The Diaries'. Perfect for the 8 - 11 age range.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 5th fantastic book in a brilliant series 7 Dec 2010
By Jane
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My 9 year old son absolutely loves this series of books - he is a very good reader but finds books suitable for his ability uninteresting to read. This series of books are full of 'boy humour' - he thinks they are very funny and he rereads them regularly.
