Book Review: Diary of A Wimpy Kid

Diary of a wimpy kid : Greg Heffley's journal

As a librarian, I thought that it was irresponsible of me to not know why all the kids were obsessed with this book (and its sequels).

So I read it.

It gets points for making kids want to read.It gets points for trusting the reader to understand the humor, and for being “addictive.”

I probably would have enjoyed it as a 9 year old.

Loses points for being unquestionably white centric and male centric in 2013.
