What My Kid is Reading- Diary of a Wimpy Kid Old School

Leo read the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid in record time! I asked him to review it below.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School
Written and illustrated by Jeff Kinney
Ages 8-12

Book #10 in the series
Released November 3, 2015

What was this book about?
Greg Heffley (the main character in all the books) gets into a lot of trouble as usual. Plus his mom has banned all electronics for a week after creating a petition. Also, Greg goes to summer camp. Eventually you start to feel badly for Greg because he's always either getting into trouble or trouble is getting him.

Were all the usual characters in the book?
Yep. But some weren't mentioned much. Manny was barely mentioned except for the no pants after dinner rule which was really funny.

Who was your favorite character in the book?
I'm not able to answer that question. The only point of view was from Greg.

So did you like Greg as usual?
Yeah, he was his normal frowning, slouching self.

What else happens?
They trained their pet pig to walk on his hind legs. And he wears shorts. He's nothing like Oink It's Olive (my cousin's pig). Also their grandpa moves in and takes Greg's room.

Where does Greg end up?
So Greg has to sleep next to Manny which is the worst thing for him because the bedtime stories he has to listen to are ridiculous.

Are there illustrations in the book?
Lots of them. There is at least one on each page. Sometimes more.

Do they help tell the story?
Yes. And sometimes they show Greg's thoughts which can sometimes be a little ugly.

Do you like the art style?
Yes! Everyone is in a slouched position unless they're happy (rarely) or lying down.

Would you recommend this book?Yes. It's been a very long series so you'd better catch up on the series.

Do you have to read the other books or can you jump right into book 10?
It's not mandatory to read the other books.

Who would like this book?
Anyone. Including grownups because there are adult parts too.

Will there be a book 11?
Yes! But we don't know what it will be yet. It doesn't say anything about a next book at the end but just like the book(s) before, it doesn't say anything about the next book.

How would you rate this book?
5 stars (out of 5)

Thanks Leo! Glad you enjoyed the book!
