THE DIARY OF A WIMPY KID by Jeff Kinney
Greg’s parents always have brilliant ideas about how to make him a better person. Like his dad making him play outside instead (forcing him to sneak over to Rowley’s house in order to play his video games!) and like his mom buying him this diary (it even says diary on the front of it). But don’t worry. He’s not going to get all mushy gushy and talk about his feelings or anything like that. He’s just going to tell you what it’s like to be in sixth grade, dodging bullies and boredom and trying very hard to move up on the popularity scale. Or at least, not to move down. . . .
The Wimpy Kid books are favorites among upper elementary schoolers (as well as certain librarians . . . ) and book six will be coming out this fall!
