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.
Greg's dad, Frank, is on a mission - a mission to make this wimpy kid, well, less wimpy. All manner of 'manly' physical activities are planned, but Greg just about manages to find a way out of them.

You can also discover Greg on the big screen in any one of the three Wimpy Kid Movie box office smashes. His original Diary of a Wimpy Kid was voted 'Best Children's Book of the Last 10 Years' by UK readers.
