Book Review Finlay Walsh

Eden Primary School

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Star Rating:


It’s about an American boy called Greg Heffley, who is starting at middle school.  Greg is about 10 years old.  He is nervous about a lot of things. His best friend is called Rowley.

The part of the story I liked best was The Cheese Touch. This is an ancient piece of cheese stuck on the basketball court which you must never touch or you get cursed by the Cheese Touch.  The only  way to get rid of the Cheese Touch is to touch someone else.  This is really funny.

There is nothing that I dislike about this book. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series are my favourite books.

If I was a character in Diary of a Wimpy Kid, I would play jazz clarinet and eat bacon sandwiches.

The illustrations are just right because the cartoons are part of the book.


Jeff Kinney

This picture is of the author who is called Jeff Kinney with cartoon Greg!

This is the Cheese Touch. You must never touch it!

This is Rowley. He is Greg’s best friend.

I would highly recommend this book and all the other books in the series.

I have them all!

My Comment

My favourite character is Greg.

Word Difficulty:

Just right. The cartoons help you to understand the story.
