    Diary of a Wimpy Kid Days

    I find it really funny the way that Jeff Kinney makes the Heffly family work and Roderick tells Greg all of those things. I like the bit when they go swimming and there's a sign that makes Greg think that he cant go in the pool and that he has to go in with a adult but actually he dose not. Great book Jeff Kinney it is so popular its great write some more.

    This is probably the funniest out of all the books. It gives a brief description of what happens in the other books (probably in case you haven’t read any yet which if you haven’t then you don’t know what you’re missing!).

    The Ugly Truth is made up all different very funny stories of things happen to him. It’s almost like a ‘Best Of’ book.

    The books are for 9+ but I think some 8 year olds would be ok with this book. Both boys and girls would love this book.

    6 out of 5 stars !!

    Diary of a wimpy kid the ugly truth is part of the Jeff Kinney Diary of a wimpy kid collection. It’s Humours, well written, creative and likable. It’s about a boy called Greg Heffley (the wimpy kid). Greg’s dad switches his lovely dentist to a scary one, the family gets a lazy maid named Isabella to help with the housework, and Greg goes to his uncle’s fourth wedding, gets locked in at a school sleepover and does many more things. Personally I would give Diary of a wimpy kid ten out of ten.

    I like this book because I like all the action and the characters. I would recommend this book to 9-13 year olds because it would make them laugh a lot. That’s who I think should read this book.

    Join Greg in the final book of the Wimpy kid series(sob,sob) when Greg and his best friend Rowley have a fight while Greg is growing up and experiencing some changes(even if he dosen’t want to) The final installment is one of the best. You need to read this book and all the others too!

    The part where Greg had the egg was really funny when his mum made it into scrambled eggs! I wouldn’t say it was the best Wimpy Kid book but when he tried to steal Rowley’s egg it was funny to see that Rowley had drawn a silly face on it and called it Rowley Junior!

    After reading the another new novel from Jeff Kinney I thought this was sensational and amazing. My favourite character is Manny because he gets all the attention and Greg gets jealous and that’s why this book is hilarious!
