Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

First of all, let us get this one thing straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary. Despite what it says on the cover, this is a journal, remember that. Secondly, this was Greg’s Mom’s idea, not his. Follow Greg Heffley as he journal’s his daily life in Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
