“Let me just say for the record that I think middle school is the dumbest idea ever invented. You got kids like me who haven’t hit their growth spurt yet mixed in with these gorillas who need to shave twice a day,” says Greg Heffley, the unlikely hero at the center of the hilarious graphic novel that’s already catapulted to the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list, got a movie deal in the works and been hailed time and time again as the book that gets kids who don’t like to read excited about reading. It’s the journal of a class clown wannabe that’s great reading whether you’re trying to survive middle school or just thankful that you never have to go back! Includes mild mature content. (Ages 9-12)

This is a favorite of my granddaughter's. It describes some of life's "lessons" in a funny way to get the point through.
Our son has a learning disability and it is very hard for him to read. I have tried so many different books, trying to find one that he was interested in and could handle. This book has captured his attention and made him want to spend time reading. He reads aloud to me each night and doesn't want to stop! Not only that, but when I say it's time for him to go to bed, he asks: "Can I take this and read to myself?" After working so hard to find a book that he really wants to read, I can only say: "YES! YES! YES!" What a difference this has made in my son!

My sons couldn't wait to get this book. My sons like it when I read the book to them. We all have a family fun laugh. Very exciting to read. Love it!!
My son and I read this book together and enjoyed it very much. He will be starting middle school soon and thought the adventures of Greg and Rowley were hilarious. As for me, it brought back a lot of memories of my own time as a "wimpy kid" in middle school. It helped me to remember what it was like and, I hope, will help me relate with him as well. I think it's a great read for kids and adults alike.
