Greg Heffley’s eighth adventure (but who’s counting?) centers on his relationship with his best friend, Rowley—more specifically, the demise of that relationship when Rowley gets a girlfriend. At first, Greg tries to insert himself into the mix, but he soon tires of Abigail’s pathological control (she changes Rowley’s hairstyle) and fussy propriety (she won’t let him eat off of the cafeteria floor). And so Greg must navigate the minefield of middle school, with its hero points, dollar-store sneakers, and the looming shadow of summer school, all by himself. Without a sidekick, Greg spends more time at home, suffering the attentions of his “colorful” extended family, like Aunt Audra, who drags him along to a psychic visit. Greg begins consulting Rodrick’s forgotten Magic 8 Ball and thinks maybe that will turn his luck around. As ever, Kinney strikes his comic target in the bull’s-eye, exaggerating the trials of adolescence just enough to make them real while deftly exposing the insecurities behind Greg’s bravado with his super, simple drawings. Will Greg and Rowley make up? Either way, devotees need not worry; there is plenty more angst in store. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Kinney’s books are best-sellers on every list out there, and his rabid fans will be chomping at the bit to get another taste of the Wimpy Kid. Grades 5-8. –Thom Barthelmess
Review – Diary of a Wimpy Kid Hard Luck PDF
In 2007, the first volume in a series of children’s books was published. It exploded onto the elementary school scene and got America’s school children reading again. As new books appeared in subsequent years, children snapped them up and devoured them. To them, it was the literary event of the year.
No, this book series was not Harry Potter (published 1997-2007). This new series followed the misadventures of lazy unprincipled undisciplined middle school miscreant Greg Heffley. And school children everywhere ate them up. While the buzz over these books eventually died down, they are every bit as good as when they were first released, and each new addition to the series remains hilarious. If your child is a reluctant reader and/or 8 – 10 years old, definitely get him or her started on the first book! (While the protagonist is a boy, my children are both girls. In my experience with my own and other children, both genders love these books.)
As the title “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” implies, the books are written from Greg’s point of view. Hand drawn pictures abound on every page. The text is so clever that children, adolescents, and adults can all appreciate it. When a new book is released, there is a gentle fight at our house over who gets to read it first. There is one illustration in the first book that was so hilarious that I laughed till I cried. (I won’t spoil it for you with details.) My younger daughter still talks about how Greg’s idiot older brother misspelled the family dog’s name on his personalized dog dish: Sweaty.
Just like with Harry Potter, I recommend that you read the books in order, although each book can certainly stand alone. As I write in early 2019, here are the books currently in the series:
Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2007)
Rodrick Rules (2008)
The Last Straw (2009)
Dog Days (2009)
The Ugly Truth (2010)
Cabin Fever (2011)
The Third Wheel (2012)
Hard Luck (2013)
The Long Haul (2014)
Old School (2015)
Double Down (2016)
The Getaway (2017)
The Meltdown (2018)
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to reread the books. I can always use a good laugh!
