This is the book that Jeff Kinney claims "inspired" him to the write the hugely successful Wimpy Kid books. It is similar - creamy paper, funny happenings in the life of a "middle" school kid - interspersed with amusing cartoons.
My reluctant fiction reader (8 year old boy) really likes the Wimpy Kid books so this is how I came to find and buy this book. It did the trick , he enjoyed it. The story is about a dreadful day in the life of Nate - everything that could go wrong at school for him does. The school doen't seem very similar to English schools, but my son didn't mind. He read it in a few sittings at bedtime and wants the next one in the series.
