Product description

Review

The world has gone crazy for Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid series (Sun)

Kinney is right up there with JK Rowling as one of the bestselling children's authors on the planet (Independent)

Hilarious! (Sunday Telegraph)

The most hotly anticipated children's book of the year is here - Diary of a Wimpy Kid (The Big Issue)

From the Inside Flap

Acclaimed debut author Jeff Kinney brilliantly re-creates the typical humor and logic of middle school boys sidling into adolescence.


Sixth grader Greg Heffley doesn't understand his annoying younger brother, obnoxious older one, or well-meaning parents. But he knows enough to record his daily thoughts in a manly journal-not some girly diary. In a unique novel brimming with laugh-out-loud moments, Greg chronicles his first turbulent year of middle school.

My 7 year old boy is an avid reader but is bored of his usual school books. So for Easter I decided to get him this. At first he didn't seem interested but tonight I walked past the bedroom door to hear someone giggling. I found my son in bed having almost finished this book and he was loving it so much he didn't even notice me come in! He did then promise to go to sleep soon but also asked me to get more of these books... which I will! Thanks, Jeff! You've kept my son's love of reading alive.

Diary of A Wimpy Kid didn’t take me long to read at all. It’s in a short diary entry format, so for more relectuant or slower readers, it’s bite sized and easy to digest. I thought it was chatty and fun to read for young children. Greg writes about his life, family and school.

I didn’t think he was a particularly likeable character, but that could be because this book isn’t aimed at me. I just found him to be a bad friend. I don’t know, perhaps this will improve with the series, but I don’t think it’s a series I will continue to read. I’m glad it’s on my radar to use with young children though.

I know the children that have read this book are lapping up the series and I’m pleased it’s inspiring children to read.

I was really surprised when my 'not so keen on reading' daughter asked for this book :) (normally I give her suggestions on what to read).
It is an amazing book and will definitely help you to introduce kids to reading.

My son hates school reading books, he was struggling to read and got bored easy. These books are great as they have short paragraphs with funny pictures in between the paragraphs, which makes the page not seem daunting. He now enjoys reading.
