Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

The first year in the middle-school life of Greg Heffley is chronicled in this laugh-out-loud novel that first appeared on the Internet. Greg tells his story in a series of short, episodic chapters. Most revolve around the adolescent male curse: the need to do incredibly dumb things because they seem to be a good idea at the time. Yet, unlike some other books about kids of this age, there’s no sense of a slightly condescending adult writer behind the main character. At every moment, Greg seems real, and the engrossed reader will even occasionally see the logic in some of his choices. Greatly adding to the humor are Kinney’s cartoons, which appear on every page. The simple line drawings perfectly capture archetypes of growing up, such as a preschool-age little brother, out-of-touch teachers, and an assortment of class nerds. Lots of fun throughout. –Todd Morning Copyright 2007 Booklist.

Review by Kate Tigue, Children’s Librarian

When Sarah Wheaton shows up in Kansas to answer an add for a mail order bride, the Witting family is unsure if she will fit into their life on the prairie. Very sweet and romantic without giving into sentimentality.

Death as the narrator! This book had me from the first line: “Here is a small fact: you are going to die.” Definitely one of my top ten favorite books ever.

This is my absolute all time favorite series of books. A wonderful fantasy fiction with Hobbits in Middle Earth journeying together to fulfill a quest. Have read this 3 times!
