Product description

Being a wimp sucks. Let Greg tell you why… in a cartoon diary to make boys laugh until they cry! When Greg starts at a new school where the other boys are all bigger, meaner and cooler than him, he thinks it might be time to get rid of his geeky sidekick Rowley. But when Rowley unexpectedly starts to become cool, their friendship is tested – with hysterical results! Illustrated with brilliant comic strips, this wonderfully funny story of a misfit’s life has become a much-praised bestseller.

What kids think

  1. Suzettey
    on 19 March 2023

    Jeff Kinney expertly portrays a 12-year-old’s mindset in this comedy book. The book is able to balance the fun diary entry format and the storyline that takes place during the course of it. What I have always loved about this book is that it doesn’t talk down to the reader. Many kids can probably relate to Greg and the issues he faces. A timeless story about middle school hijinks and the struggle of trying to seem as cool as possible at that age.

    great book one of my friends had two books from the diary of a wimpy kid I wanted to ask him to give it to me to read but I forgot but now I have read it and I love it

  19. lulillyno

    I loved this book because it was funny and I like diary of a wimpy kid series a lot. I loved the part where they were about to do the test on the states and Greg was sitting right next to a map with the states in big red writing and then Patty Farrrell puts up her hand and tells the teacher that they should cover up the states map and Greg fails the test. I like the part where his mom forces him to be in the play and he really doesn’t want to participate in it. But when he watches the movie and finds out that Patty Farrell is auditioning for Dorothy he wants to be a tree so he can throw apples at her. But when he gets his costume he realises that they don’t have any arm holes so he can’t throw the apples at Dorothy ( Patty Farrell ). Then one of the other trees trips over the bush and can’t save himself because hi arms are stuck under the costume. So the teacher says that they can have arm holes and Greg is in for a bit of luck. The night of the play is hilarious because Greg won’t sing the song that they are supposed to sing and he doesn’t sing it and he sees Dorothy ( Patty Farrell ) behind the curtain and Greg starts throwing apples at her even Toto the dog joins in they are my favourite parts of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid.

    it’s okay even though boys would like it. but i like it anyway. his comics, cartoons and the way the diary is written actually surprises me. well, i guess cause this book was the first diary i read. i think you will like it,( i am talking to boys, not girls, but if they are really wimp like greg in yhis book)

    When I was in Year 5 I saw some boys in my class reading the books and I wanted to read them. I started reading them and I really enjoyed it. It was funny and I liked the drawings. I have seen all three movies and they are good as well.

    If you have never heard of this series of books read them, they are really good.

    It is a brilliant book I think I would recommend it to some people because there are lots of funny part’s like were Greg and the 2 other trees + todo start battering patty with apples and how cheese touch would not go away. I think we should thank Jeff kinney with all his amazing books because my 2 sisters mum and dad really love the book if I could choose it would take me forever me everyone in my family and class love it! I hope my review and please tell every one about diary of a wimpy kid.I have read and got all of them including diary of a wimpy kid the long haul haul!

    I love this book! It is hilarious, and a great book. I also love the movie! If you like this book you should try the other 7 books! So far Jeff Kinney has done a great job writing these books. I hope he makes more Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, or another funny book series. Also, if you like this book series, I recommend Dork Diaries. Dork Diaries is like a Diary of a Wimpy kid, but a girl version.

    ‘I like the way that this book is written as a diary, it makes it easy to read and lots of his private thoughts as its his own diary. I like the characters as there is a variety of types so everyone can find someone who is like them. I like that Greg doesnt care what other people think of him and is normal and not too cool like some heroes.’

    on 30 January 2012

    This is a really good book.And I would love to read the rest of the set.(even though nearly all the books are in our school.)I decided to read this book because our teacher (or princaple.)told us to do a review on a book that we read,and a lot of the studants picked a review on the diary of a wimpy kid so that what maked me decide.The weirdest part was when the teenagers made Rowley eat the rotten cheese from the year before, which started the cheese touch up all over again.I would give this book a 10 out of 10!!!

    a boy named gregory asked his mum to buy a journal for him but she bort a diary for him a nd he told her to buy a journal and the only reason he agreed was because one day he will be rich and famous and this journal will come in handy so i dont need to answer peoples stupid qustions all day long

    Amazing!! You must read this book. I thought this book was going to be boring and girlish as it said “Diary” in the title of it but no!! It was not girlish,it’s for boys and girls. But I would have to say more boyish but it still is for boys and girls. I have read this book at least 1 million times!! It fantastic. I think this book is for 9 year olds to 14 year olds. The other books in the series such as The last straw,Dog Days and The ugly truth would be from 10 to 14 but maybe the ugly truth would be to 15 maybe. I really wish to see more wimpy kid books in the future!

    I went to the library to get Diary of a Wimpy Kid after I heard people talk about it, I loved it! To begin with it started with “first of all, let me get something straight: this is a JOURNEL, not a dairy” which told me from the start this wasn’t a normal book. The attitude is something I liked best.

    I liked the illustration because it was like a comic and the way the pictures go with the writing which was used though out the great book.

    I read this book on a 2.5 hour car journey – it was THAT good. When I read this book I suddenly wanted all the others so made my dad buy me two: Last Straw and Dog Days.

    The reason why I loved Diary of a Wimpy Kid so much is it had great humour like the part where they played cheese touch. It’s like tag but you say ‘cheese touch’. It’s not as funny as in the book when I type it.

    It was funny because the way they put the sentences like a real diary but with a tinge of humour and sarcasm rolled into one. There is something that everyone can laugh at. Even my dad laughed at it when I read parts to him.

    There are loads of quotes like “that’s how I ended up in the emergency room two weeks later with a pink Barbie shoe stuck up my nose”.

    It made me feel silly, funny and weird. I enjoyed reading about his days and what he got up to.

    I can’t say anything that I didn’t like about book because the whole book was brilliant! Some days were funnier than others though.

    I think the age group is 8 and up. My dad laughed at the parts I told him to read.

    It is for girls and boys!

    I Think That The Book ’’Diary Of A Wimpy Kid’’ Is A Very Excelent Book I Think The Author Put Alot Of Effort Into The Book And That It Was A Typical Boys Life In Middle School And I Watched The Film And Some Parts Of The Film Are Different Than Whats In The Book And Some Parts Of The Book Are Different Than Whats In The Film So All Together I Think Its One Of The Best Book In The World

    The diary of a wimpy kid series is amazingly funny. With a mixture of words and picture- cartoons this is a must read. Also if you`ve seen the movie and thought it was class then the book is 50 times better.

    P.S. Try not to get the cheese touch.

    Greg has just started middle school and he thinks its the worst idea in the world. Greg and his best friend Rowley are not very popular in his school but they do there best to try fit in and don’t do a very good job of it. Join Greg in his first year of middle school in this Hilarious book!

But dont get me wrong this book could be good for you.I would suqqest it to people who dont really read, then this book will be great for them.

    I have just finished reading this amazing book. I haven’t put it down. It is a fantastic book and I would recommend it any day.

    The story is about a boy named Greg Heffley who is writing a journal on request of his mother. He has a great life (not). His brother Manny gets all the attention and his brother Rodrick is a bully. Greg’s best friend is called Rowley Jefferson and he doesn’t really fit in. They have a great time being friends. They play video games every night, every year they try to build the world’s biggest snowman (unsuccessfully) and at Halloween they even built a haunted house in Rowley’s basement. But when Greg chases little kids with a stick with a worm on the end, it looks like it was Rowley and Rowley gets the blame. Greg doesn’t admit is was him. Greg tells Rowley, but the next day, Rowley has ratted him in. Will they become friends again or will they remain ex-friends?

    I love this book because it has more than one thing happening. Trust me, it is a fabulous book.

    I like this book. Personally, I wouldn’t call it the best book I’ve ever read, as I read it in one day, but it’s good for a funny, light and quick read. The cartoon strip are funny and easy to understand, though the plot line is not particularly complex. The plot is really quite simple, though the simple-ness created an atmosphere in the book that makes it a worthwhile read. I would recommend it, as it is very cleverly written, with humour and wit. Though make sure you read a proper book after.
