If someone asked me what was the most popular book during the 2009/2010 school year, I would say Diary of a Wimpy Kid hands down.

This summer, I was determined to read the Dairy of a Wimpy Kid series. I quickly discovered why the students at Florence Meares Public School have been clamouring for these books all school year.

I found myself laughing out loud at the "Cheese Touch". This contagious disease runs rampant at Greg's school as student's avoid carriers at all costs. I chuckled to myself as I reminisced about the cooties when I was a little guy.

While the book is peppered throughout with episodes of hilarity, Dairy of a Wimpy Kid conveys and important message. Greg learns that to have a friend you have to be a friend.

After having read "Greg Heffley's Journal" I can't wait to read the next title in the series. I highly recommend this book to all readers young and old.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is an instant classic that leaves the reader wanting more!
