Acclaimed debut author Jeff Kinney brilliantly re-creates the typical humor and logic of middle school boys sidling into adolescence.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Sixth grader Greg Heffley doesn’t understand his annoying younger brother, obnoxious older one, or well-meaning parents. But he knows enough to record his daily thoughts in a manly journal—not some girly diary. In a unique novel brimming with laugh-out-loud moments, Greg chronicles his first turbulent year of middle school.
Jeff Kinney’s highly anticipated sequel to his #1 New York Times bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid chronicles Greg Heffley’s creative efforts to dodge middle school hazards, dazzle the girls, avoid talent shows, and—above all—guard his embarrassing secret. Ramón de Ocampo’s spot-on narration enhances Kinney’s authentic portrait of adolescent angst and madcap hilarity.
The Last Straw
The third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Jeff Kinney, The Last Straw is sure to please young listeners. Greg Heffley makes a New Year’s resolution to help others improve, but his brand of truthful advice doesn’t go over well. Plus, Greg’s dad thinks military school might be just the attitude adjustment Greg needs.
Jeff Kinney has reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list with his Wimpy Kid series—a true publishing phenomenon. This fourth hilarious installment finds Greg Heffley approaching every kid’s favorite part of the school year—summer vacation.
Greg has a clear plan for the summer: Stay inside and play as many video games as possible. Unfortunately, his mother has a much different idea about how the summer will transpire—she envisions lots of outdoor activities and “family togetherness.” Pouring salt on that wound, she actually encourages Greg to form a book club with some other boys. Greg is further disturbed by the unimaginable horrors of the men’s locker room at the local pool. And he and best friend Rowley don’t exactly see eye-to-eye over a failed lawn-care business.
As Greg learns that not everything comes up roses in the summertime, Kinney’s sparkling sense of humor once again shines brightly.
