Diary of a Wimpy Kid #1: A Novel in Cartoons
With side-splitting humour and clever illustrations, this novel introduces readers to a totally average middle schooler who longs for greatness but can't seem to figure out how to get there.
Recommended for Grades 3 & up.
Greg Heffley is not happy. Here he is on the brink of a brilliant middle school career, and his mother is insisting he keep a diary. What happens when one of the Neanderthals at school catches him carrying that thing? His reputation will be ruined.
Then again, Greg really should capture the day-to-day madness of it all…while it's still fresh in his mind. How is he not elected class treasurer after crafting such a shrewd campaign strategy? Why on earth would wrestling be a gym class requirement? And who says every kid needs a role in the school play?
This page-turning winner is a perfect pick for any kid who's ever felt just a little bit wimpy.
