Summary

Brought to you by Puffin.

Book one of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series - from number one international best-selling author Jeff Kinney, read by Dan Russell.

Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into a new year and a new school where undersize weaklings share the corridors with kids who are taller, meaner and already shaving.

Desperate to prove his new found maturity, which only going up a grade can bring, Greg is happy to have his not-quite-so-cool sidekick, Rowley, along for the ride. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend's popularity to his own advantage. Recorded in his diary with comic pictures and his very own words, this test of Greg and Rowley's friendship unfolds with hilarious results.

Rude language


Very funny but it has very bad language and not very good if you want your child to learn the proper way to do things because in this audiobook Greg Heffley it seems does not understand life!

The Cheese touch mania!!!!

This was the most amazing book I can remember reading since ( well I don't exactly remember when.)it's so much funnier than anything I can remember reading in a while. The bits with the teenagers who chased them on hallowe'en was like Argh !!RUN RUN RUUUUUUNN!!!!!!! The best thing about it was probably the bit where Greg through apples at peppermint patty and her glasses cracked and she couldn't see two feet in front of her LOL!!

Impressive!

I was impressed that Greg covered Rowley for eating the cheese, even though Greg had to do the cheese touch.
