Diary of a Wimpy Kid: A Novel in Cartoons

by Jeff Kinney
£4.99   paperback  Puffin Books (2008)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: A Novel in Cartoons by Jeff Kinney Let me get something straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary. This was Mom's idea, not mine. But if she thinks I'm going to write down my "feelings" in here or whatever, she's crazy.
 
The only reason I agreed to do this at all is because I figure later on when I'm rich and famous, this book is gonna come in handy.
 
But for now I'm stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons.
 
Today is the first day of school, so I figured I might as well write in this book to pass the time.
 
Just don't expect me to be all "Dear Diary" this and "Dear Diary" that.

 
Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into a new year and a new school where undersize weaklings share the corridors with kids who are taller, meaner and already shaving.
 
Desperate to prove his new found maturity, which only going up a grade can bring, Greg is happy to have his not-quite-so-cool sidekick, Rowley, along for the ride. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend's popularity to his own advantage.
 
Recorded in his diary with comic pictures and his very own words, this test of Greg and Rowley's friendship unfolds with hilarious results.
