“Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth” by Jeff Kinney

This might be called “The Growing Pains of the Wimpy Kid“, Greg is in a big rush to grow up, but is it all it is cracked up to be?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth

Puberty is looming for Greg and his classmates. Rowley, Greg’s long suffering pal gets a pimple before Greg.

“...And, believe me, I’m not jealous or anything. But this is a kid who still sleeps with a pile of stuffed animals every night, so it doesn’t make sense that he would get his first pimple before I got MINE.”

Rowley gets his first pimple

This is similar in style to the earlier Wimpy Kid books with Greg, our slacker protagonist as guileless as ever. He should be taking more responsibility, now he is older and learning lessons from his mistakes but somehow never does. The book is in the usual format with cartoons interspersed with text in a trademark notebook font.

I hear it is a good book for reluctant readers, it has had phenomenal sales success.

My rating : 4 out of 5

About jimholroyd365

Hi, my name is Jim, I am an Englishman living in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. I started this blog to share my interests, my photos and to make sense of my world. I take a lot of photographs of various subjects, some of which I intend to share here. I collect diecast cars and get the same thrill at 50 as I did when I was 8, when I find a car I'm searching for, Don't worry, I have a separate blog for this hobby. Please feel free to comment and ask questions on what I blog. I am quite new to this blogging, I was inspired by reading a book, which began as a blog of a London Ambulance Driver: "Blood, Sweat and Tea". I hope my blog will be entertaining and amusing, I did try stand up comedy in the UK and had seven gigs before I left to teach English in Georgia. I love reading and so the blog will include book reviews of books as I finish them.I don't know about which direction this blog will go, I am a great believer in serendipity...let the journey begin...
