          Whenever I'm bored I read Diary Of A Wimpy Kid (I've read the whole series twice!) and they are such good and enjoyable books.

              Diary of a wimpy kid is a classic book where Greg is having a hard time school and with his family.

                  Not the greatest Diary Of A Wimpy Kid book. Though, it was very good and okay to read. You should try reading it too.

                    This book is ok. I read the series but this book is one that i don't really like. I can see how other people like it but this isn't my favorite.

                      This book was good not the best one but I still enjoyed it and it was funny and interesting. I give this book a 3 out of 5 because all the other books were awesome.
