I liked this book a lot, it was funny. Clearly the author remembers what it was like to be in junior high, it's spot on. As a tool to improve my German it was perfect because the grammar and vocabulary were at my speed, and the story was made up of incidents and observations that were funny enough to stand alone, but which linked back to previous incidents so that there was a feeling of plot/momentum to carry me along.

Diary of a Wimpy kid is a great graphic novel for early readers and can be very relatable to most middle school or older students. The novel follows the life of Greg Hefley and his life throughout middle school be it dealing with his family or turning into a vampire from gaming all day during the summer the book finds a way to be relatable and funny and allows for almost all readers to find the series addicting.

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.
