No, this book series was not Harry Potter (published 1997-2007). This new series followed the misadventures of lazy unprincipled undisciplined middle school miscreant Greg Heffley. And school children everywhere ate them up. While the buzz over these books eventually died down, they are every bit as good as when they were first released, and each new addition to the series remains hilarious. If your child is a reluctant reader and/or 8 - 10 years old, definitely get him or her started on the first book! (While the protagonist is a boy, my children are both girls. In my experience with my own and other children, both genders love these books.)
As the title “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” implies, the books are written from Greg’s point of view. Hand drawn pictures abound on every page. The text is so clever that children, adolescents, and adults can all appreciate it. When a new book is released, there is a gentle fight at our house over who gets to read it first. There is one illustration in the first book that was so hilarious that I laughed till I cried. (I won’t spoil it for you with details.) My younger daughter still talks about how Greg’s idiot older brother misspelled the family dog’s name on his personalized dog dish: Sweaty.
Just like with Harry Potter, I recommend that you read the books in order, although each book can certainly stand alone. As I write in early 2019, here are the books currently in the series:
Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2007)
Rodrick Rules (2008)
The Last Straw (2009)
Dog Days (2009)
The Ugly Truth (2010)
Cabin Fever (2011)
The Third Wheel (2012)
Hard Luck (2013)
The Long Haul (2014)
Old School (2015)
Double Down (2016)
The Getaway (2017)
The Meltdown (2018)
Wrecking Ball (2019)
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to reread the books. I can always use a good laugh!
Would recommend for ages 5 to even my teenage years
Jeff Kinney is an amazing author but he recently made a series from rowleys perspective and dont get me wrong decent book and all but the wimpy kid series yeah greg can be a jerk and a bit selfish but in the rowley perspective book he made greg out tp be an absolute MONSTER.
In the WK series rowley will defend himself and all but he sounded weak and feeble. Honestly,it kind of ruined the WK series a bit for me.
For the people who gave it five stars you will notice its the first time reading a jeff kinney book so wont understand the real greatness of WK series.
the ABUSE in it is horrific. Would NOT recommend for young children.
back to the wrecking ball book.
is relly is a funny book and will make kids and adults alike laugh out loud.
1) He is actually mean to Rowley in all of them. POOR ROWLEY
2) Its a bit like the other ones...
Things I like now :
1) Its interesting.
2) Its also funny.
And please Jeff add chicken nuggets next time. LONG LIVE CHICKEN NUGGETS!!!!!
