Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Take a peek into Greg’s diary and find out the story of his life – and especially about his relationship with his older brother Rodrick. Wittily told in words and pictures, this diary charts the trials and tribulations of a younger brother and, despite them, the underlying warmth that exists between siblings.

About The Author
Jeff Kinney was born in 1971 in Maryland, USA, and attended the University of Maryland in the early 1990s. It was there that Jeff ran a comic strip called ''Igdoof'' in the campus newspaper, and he knew he wanted to be a cartoonist.
However, Jeff was not successful in getting his comic strip syndicated after college, and in 1998 he started writing down ideas for Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which when released as a print series in April 2007, became a New York Times bestseller, eventually reaching the #1 spot. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules was released in January 2008 and also became a #1 bestseller.
The Diary of A Wimpy Kid series is now an international bestseller and has now been made into two blockbuster films. As well as being a bestselling author, Jeff is also an online developer and designer. He lives with his family in Massachusetts, USA.
Here's Jeff talking about Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever in this video:
