    it’s okay even though boys would like it. but i like it anyway. his comics, cartoons and the way the diary is written actually surprises me. well, i guess cause this book was the first diary i read. i think you will like it,( i am talking to boys, not girls, but if they are really wimp like greg in yhis book)

    When I was in Year 5 I saw some boys in my class reading the books and I wanted to read them. I started reading them and I really enjoyed it. It was funny and I liked the drawings. I have seen all three movies and they are good as well.

    If you have never heard of this series of books read them, they are really good.
