Julia Eccleshare's comment:
The ups and downs of Greg’s life are wittily exposed in his diary entries, which entertainingly capture the details of interactions with his family, his schools friends and, above all, his dad who is determined that Greg should improve himself – especially in fitness and sports. Can Greg outwit his dad and keep one step ahead off being sent off to military academy to be improved? Greg’s fittingly humorous illustrations to his diary add an extra dimension to the enjoyment.

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.
