I haven't actually read this book, but my 9-year-old son, who I bought it for, just finished it. He started reading it in bed last night, and got two-thirds of the way through before we forced him to switch the light out. Today he finished it, and has given it a big thumbs up. He found it very funny, and it was made all the more so by David Tazzyman's artwork, which we're both bigs fans of from the Mr Gum series.

I've seen this book billed as the British Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and if my son's reaction is anything to go by, it deserves to be just as successful as those books.

I am 12 years old and i am a girl and this was the greatest book i have ever read It was so funny and i had a great time reading It
The only problem was it was a bit rude (it had a poo chart in it) but i recommend it to all ages and gender. Girls because they might see a boy on the cover they dont want to read it but i am a girl and I LOVE IT !!!!

I run a Children's Book Group at the Library called 'Chatterbooks'. Each year we run a 'Book Of the Year', where 6 shortlisted books are given to the children, they have to read all 6 then vote for their favourite. The one with the most votes becomes the Book Of The Year. This is one of them. I usually read them all so I can talk about them with the kids, so more will appear over the next few weeks.
Dermot is 11 and very overweight, he has an addiction to donuts and eats a mass amount each day. He is sent to a nutritionist, it's either that or fat camp. She tells him to keep a diary of how many donuts he eats and what he gets up to - what triggers his donut cravings.
Personally I didn't love it, but children will absolutely adore it! It's filled with burping, farting, poo jokes, etc, perfect for 8-12 year old boys. As that is the market of this book, the author has done it perfectly. There is a quick humour and easy confidence to Dermot. He is a very likeable character and can tell a good story. Kids will find it easy to read and I think this could take off as well as 'Wimpy Kid' did.

In terms of my enjoyment of this book I would give it 2/5 but rating it in regards of it's intended audience, then it works perfectly and so would give it 4/5. Add this to Christmas lists if you have a child between 8-12, especially boys.
I'm quite looking forward to giving this to my book group.

Even though I am an 11 year old girl, I still really enjoyed this book. A previous review said that it is best suited to boys but I think it is suitable for any gender of ages 7-17. If you liked Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Tom Gates, this book is perfect for you. I would give it a reasonable 8 out of 10 and would like to read the next book in the series!

I am a 12 year old girl and I just finished reading this book. I really liked it and recommend it for kids 10 + up. it was a bit rude but funny (poo chart) but overall I think that it showed the importance of being healthy and the consequences of eating too many donuts!

Very sweet and hilariously funny but a little rude at some points and a little bit disgusting as it has a poo chart and fart graph.
Lots of difference between how many donuts consumed each day and lots of flavours.
Not for fussy or strict adults!
