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.

The comic book main character is called Greg Heffley, who is a 6th grade student that wants to become popular, as most boys his age want too.
He lives in an almost normal family together with his parents and two, one small whiny and second big heavy metal fan, brothers.
His best friend is Rowley, who is of same age with annoying parents who are trying to protect him from everything.
Being usual victim of older boys, Greg seems to find himself always at the wrong places and due to his constant desire to be popular and cool he will do numerous things like engage in body building that looks silly due to his thin appearance, he will try to enter Guinness Book due to building biggest snowman ever or creating his version of haunted house...
Unfortunately, the only thing he managed to do successfully so far is acting as guard for kindergarten children while they're going home during lunch.
Although it isn't necessarily a bad thing because it allows you to get free chocolate and not to be on the whole math class...
"Diary of a Wimpy Kid" is good book if you are middle grade kid or parent to one (or more) because all the events you'll encounter inside will seem familiar.
Greg is having typical problems for teenage years due to which is easy for reader to identify with him.
He's having problems with older brother who mistreats him, due to little one he is always guilty for something, his parents always something forbid for him, and girls do not perceive him at all.Read more ›
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.
