I got this book at our school's Scholastic Buy-One-Get-One-Free book fair to round out my collection of Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. However, I see that this is Wimpy Kid #5; I don't have #4 so it's time to go book shopping again.

I read it in all of about 1.5 hours. (Can we say "light read"?) I laughed the entire way through.

An acquaintance from a book club I attend said that her 8-year old daughter is slogging her way through it but having a hard time. Well, duh! It's about a boy's life in middle school. The humor is to be found by reconnecting with middle school and adolescence. An 8-year old isn't going to make many connections here but my 29-year old roommate did and my students do because Wimpy Kid books deal with those small inanities of life in middle school. They were able to connect.

I love these books!
