    "Reverting Story for pre teen bobys"
    What did you love best about The Diary of a Wimpy Kid?

    I bought this for my son. He is ten and not the keenest reader, but he adores these books. He has actually read them all and now is loving having them to listen to before he goes to sleep. So what I love about this audio is that it is helping my son to develop a love of literature.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It makes him laugh and he likes to share anecdotes with me from the audio as well as having me listen to section with him. It also is entertaining and educational and means that he is doing something that is not a computer based activity.


    What about Ramon de Ocampo’s performance did you like?

    Realistic accent. Engages the reader, It is lively and humorous.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    My son listened to sections each night. It was difficult to get him to realise he had to turn it off and go to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the more children's/ young adult literature that is put on audio the better. We wish there were more Whimpy Kids written. I would thoroughly recommend these books to all parents, especially the parents of reluctant young male reader. I believe they will enjoy the audio so much that they will want to read the novels

    de Ocampo's reading is pitch perfect. Brought the stories to life. We bought the entire series. Highly recommended if you like the Diary series.

    "FUNNY!!!"
    Would you listen to The Diary of a Wimpy Kid again? Why?

    My kids and I love these books. The narrator isn't trying to be a Renaissance Fair performer - he is just reading it with a hint of dryness. It is easy to listen and laugh to for anyone who enjoys potty humor, kids being a bit naughty, and everyone embarrassing themselves.

    "Good."

    I like this series. Good for reading in bed when you want to be a little entertained, but not lie and laugh. I'm sure kids would like it.

    I'm 18.

    "Not the type for my boy"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This could be a good choice for those below grade 3 maybe.


    What was most disappointing about Jeff Kinney’s story?

    The main character, Greg, cannot go along well with others...


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ramon de Ocampo’s performances?

    No.


    What character would you cut from The Diary of a Wimpy Kid?

    No one in particular. The whole story seems not really educational.

    "fun for all"

    the third and last in the series. both my 10 and 6 year old sons found it very funny and i must admit i was looking forward to it myself. perhaps not as funny as the first and second books but still worth it.
