Product description

From the Carnegie Medal 2020 winning author of Lark comes The Donut Diaries, a British Diary of a Wimpy Kid, featuring Dermot, an overweight eleven-year-old. Hilariously funny and insightful.

Dermot Milligan’s got problems. He’s overweight and hooked on donuts. He has a pushy, over-achieving mother, and a father who spends all his time hiding in the loo. His sisters, Ruby and Ella (known as Rubella) attack him relentlessly from the opposite directions of Chav and Goth. And now, he’s being sent to a nutritionist, Doctor Morlock, who looks like a Dementor from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

This diary is Doc Morlock’s idea. Not only does Dermot have to write down how many donuts he eats, but also – and this is the really rubbish part – he has to talk about HIS FEELINGS! But things are about to get even worse – he’s being separated from his friends and sent to St Michael’s, a posh school where he just knows he’s going to stick out like a sore thumb. A sore thumb with a weight problem . . .

    I enjoyed the Donut Diary book because it has a diary format which I quite like.

    My favourite part was when they were at the zoo and the chimps start bullying the school bullies, I also liked it when Mr Fricker, the P.E teacher shouted at Dermot to get him to run around the forest in a full circle, which made Dermot really Angry.

    I rate this book 4/5 because it wasn`t an adventure story but it was still quite good.
