Book 1: Diary of a Wimpy Kid


Ages 7-13

Greg Heffley is a sixth-grade student whose mother forces him to keep a diary. If Greg writes in his journal every day, then he's excused from one Saturday chore. In his entries readers will learn about "cheese touch," similar to cooties; his antics on Halloween and Christmas; and his short stint on Safety Patrol. Greg's hilarious diary entries alternate between home and school, and are illustrated with cartoons that add to his unapologetic adolescent behavior.
