Kinney, Jeff. 2007. Diary of a Wimpy Kid. New York: Amulet.
I read these books in the wrong order (see earlier post on Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules), but it didn't matter. It's easy to see how this became #1 on the New York Times bestseller list! This book focuses on Greg's friendship with Rowley, while book two focuses on his relationship with his brother, Rodrick. Both books are laugh-out-loud funny! I can't wait to read the next installments, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw! Gregg Heffley is irresistable!
