Diary of a Wimpy Kid #1: Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Yes: a wimp CAN rule the world. King of funnies and king of the book charts. The very first book in Jeff Kinney’s mahoosive series about a misfit’s life. Cartoon heaven. Don’t be the only wimp without it. Greg Heffley is – guess what – a wimp. And he doesn’t like it. He still has no idea that wimps will be BIG one day. Now Greg is starting at a new school where all the boys are tougher, meaner and cooler than him. It’s a wimp’s worst nightmare. What is he to do?

    I loved this book because it was funny and I like diary of a wimpy kid series a lot. I loved the part where they were about to do the test on the states and Greg was sitting right next to a map with the states in big red writing and then Patty Farrrell puts up her hand and tells the teacher that they should cover up the states map and Greg fails the test. I like the part where his mom forces him to be in the play and he really doesn’t want to participate in it. But when he watches the movie and finds out that Patty Farrell is auditioning for Dorothy he wants to be a tree so he can throw apples at her. But when he gets his costume he realises that they don’t have any arm holes so he can’t throw the apples at Dorothy ( Patty Farrell ). Then one of the other trees trips over the bush and can’t save himself because hi arms are stuck under the costume. So the teacher says that they can have arm holes and Greg is in for a bit of luck. The night of the play is hilarious because Greg won’t sing the song that they are supposed to sing and he doesn’t sing it and he sees Dorothy ( Patty Farrell ) behind the curtain and Greg starts throwing apples at her even Toto the dog joins in they are my favourite parts of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid.
