Middle school drama with humor along with cartoon styling is what makes this novel so popular.

Fun book that reminded me of good (and bad) memories from middle school. The combination of text (which is made to look handwritten) and pictures makes this an easy read, especially for younger kids who might be hesitant about reading a seemingly long novel. Plus, I'm sure it will be deeply appreciated for kids currently enjoying/trying to survive middle school.

This is a really good book. I think people should read it. I can relate to the main character and so could anyone that has ever been bullied. This book is good for 8 to 12 year olds.

The First book in the series. dosen't have a name. Just titled "Diary of a Wimpy Kid." There has been a movie based on this. Speaking of which, there are rumors that the are coming out with The Ugly Truth (Book 5) as a movie, And they are bringing back Zachery Gordon, the original Greg Heffley Actor. Lightning McQueen is going to be in the movie too! (Okay, I made that last part up.)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid lacks a compelling plot and significant character development. Despite this, it is still a great choice for reluctant readers! The humor and graphic novel-style illustrations will appeal to those who are uninterested in traditional fiction.

for all those who haven't read this book, i'll summarize. Greg is an arrogant and clueless kid who thinks he's the best, his brother Rodrick is a punk, his little brother Manny is a spoiled child, his mom is a education freak, and his dad is always pushing them to do their best and stuff and Greg's friend is pretty much a little child.

Greg and Rowley's friendship had broke due to Greg terrorizing the kindergarteners by chasing them with worms, and Mrs. Irvine had accused Greg of terrorizing the kindergarteners and thought Greg is Rowley, so Rowley and Collin decided to hang out. In the end, Rowley ate the moldy cheese and Greg said he ate it. So, Rowley and Greg's friendship had been restored thanks to Greg stepping up for it.

Rowley does not hang out with Greg anymore and he found a new best friend, but then some teenages force Rowley to eat some disgusting, moldy cheese off the pavement in the playground that was there for a long time under the basketball hoop nobody will even go near it, so Greg stepped in, in front of everyone and said he ate the cheese. Rowley and greg became friends again.
