Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney, loved by Dylan
My favourite book ever is Diary of a Wimpy Kid because it is funny and the main character, called Greg Heffley, is a bit like me. He is lazy, so am I. I am so lazy my mum is making me write this.
He is clever but prefers to act a bit stupid like me because it is more fun … wait … what? He also likes playing video games and doesn’t really like sport (me in a nutshell). Oh yeah, and his dad tried to stop him playing video games to do more sport. I am glad my dad is not like that. My mum showed me a cartoon where the cartoon boy is told to play outside so he takes his game controller outside and plays through the window. That’s what I would do too and so would Greg Heffley
Diary of a Wimpy Kid makes me feel lucky because he has more problems than I do. It also makes me realise that it matters what school you go to. His middle school is a bad place full of big people who might bully me if I went there. I would certainly never go in the bathroom there. My junior school is much better and I don’t get bullied.
I like the cartoons too and they make the book better. I started to draw a cartoon strip after I read it, but unfortunately it sucked. Diary of a Wimpy Kid doesn’t suck. It IS my favourite book, after all.
