Praise for the series
“Kinney is right up there with JK Rowling as one of the bestselling children's authors on the planet” (Independent )
“…the real and deeper appeal of Greg’s story is the unapologetic honesty of his adolescence; he comes across as a real kid, and his story is one that will appeal to all those real kids who feel just like him. Grades 5–8.” Booklist
Hilarious! (Sunday Telegraph )
“Kinney's popular Web comic, which began in 2004, makes its way to print as a laugh-out-loud "novel in cartoons,” adapted from the series. Kinney has a gift for believable preteen dialogue and narration (e.g., “Don't expect me to be all ‘Dear Diary’ this and ‘Dear Diary’ that”), and the illustrations serve as a hilarious counterpoint to Greg's often deadpan voice. The hero's utter obliviousness to his friends and family becomes a running joke…His print debut should keep readers in stitches, eagerly anticipating Greg's further adventures." Publishers Weekly
“The world has gone crazy for Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid series” (Sun )
“…an excellent choice for reluctant readers, but more experienced readers will also find much to enjoy and relate to in one seventh grader's view of the everyday trials and tribulations of middle school.”—Kim Dare, School Library Journal
