(2007) The hilarious and original global bestseller Diary of a Wimpy Kid – perfect for readers of 8+ and also reluctant readers, everyone loves the adventures of Greg Heffley. You can also discover Diary of a Wimpy Kid on the big screen in the major motion blockbusting Wimpy Kid Movie franchise. Let me get something straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary. This was Mom’s idea, not mine. But if she thinks I’m going to write down my “feelings” in here or whatever, she’s crazy. The only reason I agreed to do this at all is because I figure later on when I’m rich and famous, this book is gonna come in handy. But for now I’m stuck with a bunch of morons. Today is the first day of school, so I figured I might as well write in this book to pass the time. Just don’t expect me to be all “Dear Diary” this and “Dear Diary” that.
