There are some characters in my story like some of my friends and family like Manny. Manny is Greg’s annoying little brother. Payton is the same way. Payton is annoying, cranky, stubborn, grouchy, selfish, and gets everything he wants. He gets all of the attention and I get none. Rowley is kind of like Keenan in some ways but not a lot. Rowley is funny, energetic, very weird, and don’t forget girly. Keenan is funny, energetic, weird, funny to watch, and does mentally insane things and tricks tha ...more

I had been told that this book isn't worth reading at all, but then I thought I'm gonna keep all the books of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid", so why not give it a shot??
Then I started reading it and can't say how much I enjoyed this book!! Since I'm a big fan and I've watched all its movies, it was really interesting to know what happened behind the scenes!
You know, how they choose actors, how they put the scenes together and other cool stuff that I didn't even know!
And I thought wow!! Writing a book

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid is one of the most popular books at our school library, and it's no surprise that many kids are excited about the upcoming movie opening March 19th. The kids are lining up to borrow a new book: The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary.

This movie-tie in goes beyond the simple repackaging, and is a fresh look at what it's like to make a movie. Starting with "A Wimp Is Born", Kinney tells the story of how this story and movie came to be. You'll see photographs, script pages, storyboard sk

I liked this book a lot because it was about the movies instead of the story line. I found it interesting because I didn't know how Greg got popular enough to be in motion pictures. I recommend this to everyone. Trust me it will all make sense once you read it.

I thought that this book was filled with information. It is about making a thought into a book and then into a movie first they talk about casting and then they keep telling the audience about all of the steps to making the movie. It also informs us about the life's of the actors outside the movie and how they have a connection with the character. It also tells you how they made the characters that were pretty much stick figures into real people. I think that this book is for anyone who is a fan ...more

This was one neat-o book!! I adored it and if your kid is a fan of the Wimpy Kid diaries then I guarantee you they will also get a kick at the behind-the scenes info.



My son is really into the Wimpy Kid books. I think he was either in 3rd or 4th grade when he started reading them (5 or 4 years ago). One day he brought home a book that wasn't his nor was it a library book. It was the first Wimpy Kid book and his teacher let him bring it home to read over the weekend. I can't tell you how many time

I've seen both of the diary of a wimpy kid movies and I've never noticed any of the animated things they used for
The movie. This book showed me a lot of stuff they've done In the movie. If you wanna know about the props they used in the movie I recommend this book. I've always wondered how they got those actors for the movie and this book gave me the answers. I kinda wanna be a background person now because you get payed. I also never knew that background people had to wait a long time.. If you

The title of this book is called the wimpy kid movie diary. The author is Jeff Kinney. This book was about how they got the diary of a wimpy kid book into a movie. They also tell you who is playing in the movie and who is playing in the heffley family. I gave this book a five star because it is a very good book. It tells you a lot about what happened in the book by detail.i would recommend this book because they do the stuff that kids do in school and it could remind you how your child hood is.

Greg heffly aslo know as zack Gordon was introduced to be the main person for a movie. This book talks about how the book and movie we both made and how they moved it from 2-D to 3-D. My favorite part was when they show the proses of making the movie. Will they be successful in creating the movie. I would recommend this book to anybody that likes humor and who like to se the process of things.

I like this book because it showed you how its not easy to make a movie and lets you have second thoughts about becoming an actress.I also recommend this book to every single person who would want to become an actor or a t.v star.

The book is about how they decided to pick the actors of the movie and how long it toke to make the movie and the actors life. I like the book a little bit but like there was some parts that don't fit in the book like there was 7 pages about pictures I wish they talked more about the movie than just pictures. I recommend this book to a 5 grader because I think they like a book that is funny and talks about how they got to so many places for the movie

Now I know what's the life of an actor. Just so you know, this isn't a real Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, it's just what happened behind the scenes of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie. I liked this behind the scenes book. It was informational.
Madeleine Gamboa
I think this book is a good book because it is about a boy that is in middle school.He likes to write in his diary which is the book.Their is a girl that he likes and he talks about her in his diary.

Surprisingly good. Normally I stay away from the movie-diary stuff, but this had drawings done by the author, not just movie stills.
Linnae
3.5 stars: Entertaining behind-the-scenes look at the popular movie, with photos and Kinney's signature illustrations.

If you've got a 3rd grader in your house, there's a good chance you already know all about The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. My son has probably read them all at least 3 times.

Although we have yet to see the movie, when he happened upon The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary at the library, he snatched it right up. Then I picked it up, too. It was hard not to! It was a fun, quick read.

This book is actually very good as a non-fiction look at the contemporary process of making movies. Juvenile non-fiction tends to have little popularity among its purported target audience, but The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary moves quickly and is funny at all times, while giving an excellent in-depth look at the process of transferring a bestselling novel from the page to the silver screen. It's a process that most kids aren't going to know a lot about, and even those of us who are reasonably well-ve ...more

This book is about of how they made the movie the wimpy kid movie diary. Then rowley and greg was in the backstage and how they now each other because they was born in different place. But greg was uncounterable because greg did not know because he was a stranger. And rowley did not care because he was his friend when they started the movie they was super best friend.
