Low rent Diary of a Wimpy Kid
on 16 June 2014
I bought a few of the Norm series to drip feed to my children, who have read, loved and exhausted the Wimpy Kid series. I haven't read them myself but can feed back the feedback I have had from them. "It's okay". They stuck with them, they were happy to pick up another having finished the first. There were a few laughs. Maybe I'm reviewing a little harshly, and if seen in their own right they would come up better - but since they were bought as another 'Wimpy Kid', and since they seem to be marketed as such, the comparison is hard to avoid.
A good read - and lets face it anything that gets them away from a screen must have merit - but not great.
