Boys don't keep diaries--or do they?  

The launch of an exciting and innovatively illustrated new series narrated by an unforgettable kid every family can relate to.  

It's a new school year, and Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving. The hazards of growing up before you're ready are uniquely revealed through words and drawings as Greg records them in his diary.

In book one of this debut series, Greg is happy to have Rowley, his sidekick, along for the ride. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend's newfound popularity to his own advantage, kicking off a chain of events that will test their friendship in hilarious fashion.

Author/illustrator Jeff Kinney recalls the growing pains of school life and introduces a new kind of hero who epitomizes the challenges of being a kid. As Greg says in his diary, "Just don't expect me to be all 'Dear Diary' this and 'Dear Diary' that." Luckily for us, what Greg Heffley says he won't do and what he actually does are two very different things.

    In my opinion you should read this book it is hilarious filled with jokes but they should put a warning label for kids 6 and under because there were some parts that were not for kids

    Great book, loved the movie. Made me a little afraid of what my brother will be like in high school, but very good in general. Really well written too, and, like another reviewer said, we can all relate to Greg. Sincerely, 8-year old critic, Paolo Kim
