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.
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 !!!!
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.
Lots of difference between how many donuts consumed each day and lots of flavours.
Not for fussy or strict adults!
