A Book Of Humor! Sure to put a smile on anyone's f

on 2/2/2008

In DIARY OF A WIMPY KID, humor truly shines and sparkles. Kinney uses a style of writing that is astoundingly accurate, and cuts to the point, while still having fun. A splendid choice for readers between 9-15, but humors adults too. So I say buy this, and savor each letter. Greg Heffley is a teenage boy who is surrounded by bulky "apes" in his middle school, and is accompanied by many other characters, such as Rowley, Greg's best friend ,and Fregley, the kid down the block. On a dreary Halloween, Greg and Rowley are confronted with High-schoolers, and are chased home. The happening startles Greg, but it cant stop his school to do a wrestling team unit. He tries and fails, but others are going at it to, so Greg is now in danger. He is in danger of the Cheese Touch. There has always been a cheese that has ben on the blacktop forever. But when the teens from Halloween come finish them off Greg got to think fast...... I loved this book, and don't be afraid to say, "Yes, I'm reading some kid's diary!" Read More

Greg is one of three children. According to Greg, his little brother, Manny, "never gets in trouble, even if he really deserves it," and his older brother Rodrick is always getting the best of Greg. In his diary, Greg details his daily activities, starting with the first day of middle school and his warnings to readers about choosing where to sit in class. How does Greg feel about middle school? He thinks it's dumb because, "You got kids like me who haven't hit their growth spurt yet mixed in with these gorillas who need to shave twice a day." Whether it's dealing with bullying, his friend Rowley, homework, or family life, Greg is always busy trying to figure out the angle that will make things come out best for him. Author Jeff Kinney does a great jobs, in words and picture, of illustrating the general goofiness that comes with being a self-centered adolescent, and the funny things that happen as a result.
