My eight year old thinks Greg and Roderick are role models and that Patty Farrell is a villian. Personally, I'd like to give Roderick a simultaneous swirly and wedgy. I predict Roderick will be living in that van in a few years. And poor Greg just has his priorities ALL out of order. What should I tell my boy?
I think you're right! That's the point of those characters... they are very flawed.
