You either have to be stoned or in middle school to enjoy this pathetic story about a classic slacker. Basically written for kids who refuse to read real books. Some funny lines and the cartoons made the book a quick read. ( )

I know this is the original, and this (combined with Captain Underpants) may have been the thing to get me into comics/comic books, but it didn't make me laugh as much as when I was young. Weirdly enough, I liked two of the Rowley books more, maybe because Rowley is less of a scumbag. ( )

For a kid's book, I enjoyed it. I laughed out loud several times and, as an added bonus, finally got some of the jokes my 9 year-old son has been telling me. ( )

I think if I was in the target demographic for this book I would have really enjoyed it. It wasn't bad, just not geared towards adults lol. ( )

Basically the first book is about them going tricker treating and they were chased by some mean high school kids. So they run into their grammas house and hide while there grandma isn't there. But Rowley let out a big secret and told them that the teenagers that Greggs grandma wasn't there. The teenagers waited and waited until they came and accidently scratch there truck. The kids managed to escape and ran off. But the teenagers went there school and made them eat the cheese. The cheese was a highly nasty thing. It goes on from generation to generation that if you touched the cheese that you would have the cheese touch! The teenagers made Rowley eat it. Rowley ate it and then a whole swarm of people came by. But Gregg was a good friend and said that he ate it.

First words
Em primeiro lugar, quero esclarecer uma coisa: isto é um LIVRO DE MEMÓRIAS, não um diário.
First of all, let me get something straight: This is a JOURNAL, not a diary.
Richt, afore ye say onythin: this is a JOURNAL, aye?
Let me just say for the record that I think middle school is the dumbest idea ever invented. You got kids like me who haven't hit their growth spurt yet mixed in with these gorillas who need to shave twice a day. And then they wonder why bullying is such a big problem in middle school.
