Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In his first journal, middle schooler Rowley Jefferson, Greg Heffley's sidekick, records his experiences and misguided decision to write a biography of Greg, who, in his own mind, is destined to become rich and famous.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 April #2
    Greg Heffley has spent plenty of time in the spotlight, wouldn't you say? His best friend, Rowley, certainly thinks so, and this spin-off of the wildly popular Wimpy Kid series gives the beleaguered sidekick a chance to shine (sort of). It starts out well enough, with Rowley narrating his exploits in classic Kinney style, but soon Greg catches on and mayhem ensues. First, Greg insists Rowley write an official biography of Greg, but Rowley's anecdotes aren't particularly laudatory—in fact, Greg comes off as a pretty big jerk. Naturally, this only leads to more hilarity, particularly around Rowley and Greg's odd-couple friendship. As you'd probably expect, Kinney perfectly captures middle-school logic and relationships, especially the manic escalation of fights. Rowley emerges as a sweet if gullible kid, whose desire to be a good friend leads him down some questionable paths. Laughs abound, of course, and a roundup of lies Greg told Rowley is particularly hilarious. Kinney has mastered this format, and fans of the beloved series will be delighted by this fresh perspective.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This is certainly one of the biggest books to come out this year. Kinney's fans already know all about it, so plan accordingly! Grades 2-5. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
