Teach children the joy of reading with this hardcover copy of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid." Written by Jeff Kinney, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" is a hilarious children’s book that follows the adventures of Greg Heffley, an awkward pre-pubescent kid trying to fit in and make friends at middle school. Greg’s attempts to fit in lead to numerous struggles and puts him in direct conflict with his best friend, Rowley Jefferson, which leads to some quite laughable results. Published in April 2007, Jeff Kinney’s "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" was released to much critical acclaim and has since spawned an entire series of books. The story was originally released as an online version on the website FunBrain, with new episodes of the story being published each day during the course of several months. The online version of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" story was so popular, receiving more than 20 million views, that Kinney decided to try to have it published as a book. This hardcover book version of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" is a result of his efforts and is an abridged version of the original online story. Following the success of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," Jeff Kinney went on to release a number of sequels, such as "Rodrick Rules," "The Last Straw," "Dog Days," "The Ugly Truth," and "Cabin Fever." Other books in the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series include "The Third Wheel," "Hard Luck," "The Long Haul," and "Old School." As well as writing "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and the other books in the series, Kinney also drew all of the illustrations for the books. In "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," readers follow Greg as he tries to guide himself through the tumultuous world of middle school. Although Greg is extremely happy to have Rowley as his best friend, at first he is concerned that Rowley won’t be able to fit in at middle school since he has a tendency to act quite immaturely at times. However, once school actually starts, Greg is distressed to see that Rowley is actually fitting in. Not only that but Rowley is making many more friends than Greg, which doesn’t sit so well with him. Always a devoted friend, Rowley does basically whatever Greg tells him, leading to a situation where Greg purposefully knocks Rowley off his bike. Rowley breaks his arm during the accident, which only serves to get him even more attention, angering Greg further. In another part of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," Greg causes even more trouble for Rowley, accidentally getting him fired from his job on the safety patrol. The end of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" has Greg causing even more problems, this time resulting in the school play descending into a brawl onstage. However, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" does have a happy ending and offers a great message to kids as Greg finally acts in a selfless manner in order to save Rowley from scorn, even though it means that Greg himself becomes the subject of ridicule. Critics around the world have praised Jeff Kinney’s "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" for its originality and the way that the author makes readers actually care about the characters. Despite Greg’s many issues, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" provides a main character that kids can definitely relate to, and the close of the book shows him to be a great friend. A fun read for kids of all ages, this hardcover version of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" is sure to go down as their new favorite book.
