Diary of a Wimpy Kid

By: Jeff Kinney

"Let me just say for the record that I think middle school is the dumbest idea ever invented. You got kids like me who haven't hit their growth spurt yet mixed in with these gorillas who need to shave twice a day. And then they wonder why bullying is such a big problem in middle school." In words and cartoons, middle-schooler Greg Heffley holds forth on girls, friendship, and the horrors of the "Cheese Touch." Black-and-white drawings.
