An entertaining and witty read in this popular series, this book sees the hapless and hopeless Greg Heffley grappling with problems common to the average ‘middle schooler’: being forced to rescue his hysterical baby brother who is stuck in the play tunnels at a soft play, campaigning for softer toilet paper at school and finding a girl to take to the school dance. Peppered with hilarious antics that will make the reader cringe, there is however no option but to feel great sympathy for Greg and his troubles, most of which seem to just happen to him rather than being of his own making. Slightly irreverent and not for the faint hearted, the book maintains diary format throughout with plentiful black and white illustrations, many with speech bubbles, making it an ideal read for the less confident reader, girls and boys alike. Older UK readers are more than likely to handle with confidence the US vocabulary and concepts that feature throughout, but younger readers may need some support.
