I was tempted to pick up the normal paperback version, but spotted this one with the "Journal". As my Son is such a huge wimply kid fan I thought it would make a nice present for Christmas. Quality of the binding is very good, and a hard back is likely to last a bit longer too.
The Journal is simply a bit of fun for kids to write in their own "wimpy kid" adventures, and I'm sure he'll be making up his own stories in no time.
I did read some of the book quickly, and I can see why kids enjoy them so much. Jeff Kinney has a way of connecting with children with his writing style, and illustrations. My Son has read many of the books and he's engrossed in the comical adventure to the exlusion of everything else!
One to add under the tree as a secondary present.

10/10 Value and quality. It's not much more than the cost of the first book alone so it is excellent value for money with the lined diary. Get the 'Do it yourself' book too and the diary has a whole new meaning, not just a journal but a journey with no limits and lots of ideas for cartoons, favourite things, etc
