    I got this book based on a quick skim in the store where I saw lots of funny line illustrations and large fonts that mimic handwriting. Although the tone was sarcastic, I thought that it would prove to be a good read-aloud for my 6 year old son, who still needs some enticement into stories. I pictured him, the boy who fancies himself an author and artist, just eating up this book. And actually, he would have--except after one night of reading thi...

    Yes, I know kids love it. Duh. Kids are dumb. And so is this book. (Ok, that was mean. I apologize.) One of my students gave me his copy of Wimpy Kid and then asked me every day for a month if I had read it yet. Not wanting to disappoint a student excited about a book, I finally sat down one afternoon and flew through it. Eh. The protagonist is a mean, unfunny little jerk. I freely admit that I probably "just don't' get it," and I'm okay with tha...

    This was so cute and funny, i laughed out loud many times even the comedy books that i have read didn't make me laugh this hard! “I'll be famous one day, but for now I'm stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons."“The best person I know is Myself.”Ha, Me too!! XD“And if you don't spend every second outdoors, people think there's someting wrong with you.” i know, Right?

    While attending open house this year at my 10 year old sons school, he found this book for sale at the book fair. We thumbed through it, and thought it looked cute, so we purchased it, and read it together. Its narrated by this middle-school aged kid in the form of a diary, with sketches and doodles included on every page, and basically follows his days from the begining of the school year to the end. He is a bit of a loser, and trys to create a ...

    I bought this book for my 9 year old son, who had begged me for it relentlessly for over a month. After i got it, i would hear him giggling and laughing in his room, and when i would peek in, he was always reading this book. So when he was done, i picked it up and started reading it myself.... and it really is funny! The voice of the main character is very authentic - a thing which is hard to find. I wish that people had been writing material lik...

    I find this whole series depressing. Sure, there are funny moments - I even laughed out loud once or twice, seriously - but the fact of the matter is, Greg is so completely devoid of any kind of human feeling or understanding of other people that I'm beginning to suspect he's some kind of clinical narcissist. He blames everyone else for his problems; he doesn't care about anyone. He doesn't grow, he doesn't learn, he doesn't change (does he even ...

    My first Wimpy Kid and is surely not the last. Who knew this Wimpy Kid would be playing with my head for such a long time.

    When I told my friend I was reading 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid', she said only one thing "What are you... 12"? If enjoying reading this book makes me 12, so be it. I liked this book. Its funny, a very quick read, unique and very cute. Worth a read for anyone who has a child living inside them.
