Boys don’t keep diaries—or do they?The launch of an exciting and innovatively illustrated new series narrated by an unforgettable kid every family can relate toIt’s a new school year, and Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving. The hazards of growing up before you’re ready are uniquely revealed through words and drawings as Greg records them in his diary.In book one of this debut series, Greg is happy to have Rowley, his sidekick, along for the ride. But when Rowley’s star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend’s newfound popularity to his own advantage, kicking off a chain of events that will test their friendship in hilarious fashion.Author/illustrator Jeff Kinney recalls the growing pains of school life and introduces a new kind of hero who epitomizes the challenges of being a kid. As Greg says in his diary, “Just don’t expect me to be all ‘Dear Diary’ this and ‘Dear Diary’ that.” Luckily for us, what Greg Heffley says he won’t do and what he actually does are two very different things.Since its launch in May 2004 on Funbrain.com, the Web version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid has been viewed by 20 million unique online readers. This year, it is averaging 70,000 readers a day. F&P level: T

I found a copy for a few bucks in the clearance section and read most of it in a day. I can't stand Greg Heffley. He is one of the most irritating characters I have even encount...

4.0 Diary of a Wimpy Kid
This a popular series within the 3rd to 5th grade range right now. The Lexile level is 950L. I would use this at the beginning of the year or even the first day of school. Greg Heffley learns in the Wimpy Kid books that starting a new school year can be hard. I would give the children ten prompts. F...

I really wish I had read this as a kid, I think I would have had a better reaction. As it is, I just kind of sat there and kept raising my eyebrows. "Really? Is that how kids are?" The illustrations were pretty amusing though, and definitely what took this from a 2-star to a 3-star. Maybe at 8 or 9 ...

This series of books are wonderful for young male students. They are very funny and interesting. It shows what this young boy goes through with school, family and girls. There are not many books that are set focused on the interest of boys so I would keep these in my classroom library and recommend...
