Sixth grader Greg Heffley doesn't understand his annoying younger brother, obnoxious older one, or well-meaning parents. But he knows enough to record his daily thoughts in a manly journal - not some girly diary. In a unique novel brimming with laugh-out-loud moments, Greg chronicles his first turbulent year of middle school.

You need the cartoons!

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-17-08

My kids love this book, so we got it as an audiobook for a car trip. The trouble is that the cartoons are an integral part of the story. Without them, you lose some of the humor. It would be perfect for reading along, if your kids already have the book, but there is definitely something missing when you just listen to the audiobook without the visuals.
