Diary of a Wimpy Kid

by Jeff Kinney

I first saw this book in the "Recommended" section of People magazine (someone left a copy lying around the office). And last time I was at the library I happened to see it on the shelf while I was looking for a different book. So, the Romgi and I checked it out to read together.

It's definitely a fun book. The author does a really good job of capturing the middle school mentality. Even better, the drawings are hilarious. I guess the whole thing is adapted from a web comic. You can find the first few pages of the book at http://www.funbrain.com/.

Even though it was a quick read, it was well worth an hour of laughing. Read it...and remember why you're glad to not be in middle school anymore.

'sposita, you opened my eyes! The library book is the first of 5 books that will be published, and the story online is much more extensive than what I read in the book. Now I have something to do at work!
