My 10 year old son loves to read Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. He is an avid reader and reads all types of books and genres, yet Diary of a Wimpy Kid is still one of his favorite series to read. We purchased this book for him last year at Christmas, and he read the entire book on Christmas day! We were so surprised, but he was happily curled up in a chair reading away! He loves the illustrations and all the crazy things that the main character, Greg, and his group of friends say and do. You will absolutely want to add this book to your child's collection if they like reading this series!
