Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
By Jeff Kinney

Greg Heffley has got a rough life.  He's in middle school, his older brother is a bully, he's a weakling, and his mom makes him join the school play.  And to be clean, this is not a diary, this is a JOURNAL.  Here Greg has a place to record his wacky ideas, his true feelings and his doodles.

This was a great book!  The drawings are essential to the story, and enhance it rather than distract for the story.  The narrative style is kid friendly, especially for boys.  This would be a great book for a reluctant reader, or even one that loves to read.

I enjoyed this book a lot.  It made me laugh, but I also really identified with Greg.  He seemed very realistic, practical and very much a middle school boy.  While great for boys, would also be good for girls as well.
