Diary of a Wimpy Kid

By Jeff Kinney, 2007
3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th & 7th grade will enjoy, especially the boys AR level 5.2
Highly recommend
Take a look inside the journal of Greg Heffley. He is a middle-schooler who's mother wants him to write and so she purchases this... journal NOT a diary. He is only writing this journal so when he is rich and famous and people start asking him questions, he can hand them the book.

Greg tells readers that being liked by girls was easy in elementary school-just be the fastest runner. But in middle school it is about the clothes, how rich you are or having a cute butt. Greg figures he ranks 52 or 53 in popularity. Brother Roderick is cool and Greg just annoys him.

Very humorous, simple drawings. The third book is now available Do-It-Yourself Book !!! I do not recommend this particular book for the library since half of it is a journal for kids to write in-which they will!! Visit the website for Wimpy Kid....

The kids at Hunters Creek Middle love Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The next one is due out in January 2009.

Silver Creek Elem is considering banning these books since several of the kids played two pranks from the book.
