The Wimpy Ways

Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney is an interesting book because it's about a person called Gregory who is bullied (sort of) and is very wimpy.
It's a funny book and it is going to be made into a film. It's the first one of a series.
Gregory is a wimp and his father doesn't like it. He has two brothers, the older one Rodrick pushes him around and treats him rather badly. The younger one, Manny, is always being a tattle-tale and being the favourite of the parents.
Greg's a huge quitter and not very good at sports. Greg has his best friend Rowley who he plays with a great deal. Greg likes video games. He also has a major crush on a girl in his class and is trying to make a good impression on her. When Greg is going to Rowley's house he meets this boy named Fregely who is always saying strange things like 'Do you want to see my secret freckle?' who is also super-sensitive to sugar, which makes him go hyper-active.
This story is a funny and exciting story. There's one thing which Greg does really wrong. He takes advantage of his friend.
I give this book four out of five because it was really funny but a bit simple. Good for any age.
