Hilarious - A Book To Share
on 10 November 2010
I eagerly anticipated this latest book in the Wimpy kid series. Greg is getting older now, and he is beginning to be confronted by the ugly truth about life. He has fallen out with Rowley, who has grown taller and sports his first zit like a badge of manhood. There is an uncle's annual wedding to go to, and in between are all the adventures that any middle school kid would get up to (I think he is about year 8 in UK terms).
These books are hilarious. The text is understated, written like a somewhat egocentric school kid might write, but the text is offset beautifully by the cartoons, and had me laughing out loud as I read the book.
I was lucky, because Amazon delivered this book a little early. I am not sure why, but already I have read it, my daughter has read it and today it went in to school to be shared with the rest of her class. This book is too good to keep to yourself, and an easy enough read that any child or young adult will have no problems getting in to it.
Thoroughly recommended. I would not suggest it as a Christmas present though - if my daughter's class is anything to go by, they will have all read it by December.
