Diary of a Wimpy Kid Deries - Novels in Cartoons by Jeff Kinney
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series started off online on Funbrain.com in 2004. Jeff didn't plan to release the book on the Internet, but found the opportunity to reach millions of kids irresistible, and published his first book in the form of daily blog like entries.
Book #1 - Being a kid can really stink. No one knows this better than Greg Heffley, who finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving.
In Diary of a Wimpy Kid, author and illustrator Jeff Kinney introduces us to an unlikely hero. As Greg says in his diary:
"Just don't expect me to be all "Dear Diary" this and "Dear Diary" that.
Luckily for us, what Greg Heffley says won't do and what he actually does are two very different things.
Book #2 - Whatever you do, don't ask Greg Heffley how he spent his summer vacation, because he definitely doesn't want to talk about it.
As Gregg enters the new school year, he's eager to put the past three months behind him ... and one event in particular.
Unfortunately for Greg, his older brother, Rodrick, knows all about the incident Greg wants to keep under wraps. But secrets have a way of getting out ... especially when a diary is involved.
Chronicles GregÃï¿½Ã¯Â¿Â½s attempts to navigate the hazards of middle school, impress the girls, steer clear of the school talent show, and most important, keep his secret safe.
