Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Interest level: 8+

by Jeff Kinney

Greg Heffley is a normal American kid, albeit one with a habit of getting into (and out of) trouble. His diary, complete with hilarious cartoons, records a year in his life and follows his relationships with his nerdy best friend Rowley, annoying brothers Roderick and Manny and long-suffering parents.

Greg is constantly trying to boost his popularity but his attempts at bodybuilding, cartooning and money-making - all recounted in the same deadpan tone - inevitably fall flat.

This laugh-out-loud book was a New York Times bestseller and has had enormous success with children on both sides of the Atlantic. The engaging illustrated diary format will ensure it continues to have huge appeal for reluctant readers and younger children who are gaining confidence in their reading - and it will undoubtedly raise a smile from their parents too!
