Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed debut author Jeff Kinney brilliantly re-creates the typical humor and logic of middle-school boys sidling into adolescence.

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.

My kid loved this book

Any additional comments?

My six year old loves this book and laughs like crazy. I personally find the main narrator annoying but the book isn't aimed at a 40 year old bitter man so it doesn't really matter. :)

Annoying meh

I remember this being a hit so when I needed a new "read" I gave it a go. Perhaps I'm not the right audience. Perhaps I'm too old. Perhaps I need a seance of humor. But perhaps it's none of the above... perhaps someone covered this title in phenomenal PR and the following that came with it was enough to make everyone believe this was worth something. But consider me one who just didn't see the appeal. "Annoying meh" is about all I'm capable of in terms of a review.

Great!!

This book is great for kids and adults alike and has a great story. I wish I could have seen the pictures and I think that would have been a great feature to add to books like this. Maybe on the next update? Think about it,autable besides that,it's an amazingly fundamentally lovingly thoughtfully relatable wimpy awesome book thank you,John Kenny.

Accurate story of a middle school kid

This is a perfect story of a middle school kid. The kind of logic that goes through their head is spot on and it's hilarious. I love this book so much.

My kids and I LOVED it!

This book kept my 5 & 8 year olds entertained. We listened to it while driving around town and to and from school. They got so into the book they requested that we finish listening to it while sitting around the table after dinner. I was thoroughly entertained by this book as it brought the horribly faulty reasoning abilities of a teenage boy comically back to my memory. Laughed out loud in nearly every chapter.
