The negative. A caution for the author and the reason I rated this a 1: Where Greg’s complaining about people at his school, including the guy whose sweater has the same stains every day, and the girl who has lice and spreads it? I think that no youngster wants to go to school every day with the same stains on their sweater, and no child willingly or knowingly spreads lice. Not every house or apartment has a washing machine and many schools have homeless kids. Also, some parents work two and three jobs and are too tired to see to all of their kids’ needs. Sad, but it’s the reality and we need to be sensitive to this. So criticizing these kids, making fun of them; not good. Also, I think I would have liked the book better if maybe, just once or twice, Gregory did something nice for others. He thinks about his needs first, as many in his age group do…but there are also many kids whose parents have taught them to do the occasional good deed. I’ve seen many mischievous kids do nice things. As a writer with the huge audience author Kinney has, he has a chance to set an example and show readers that even misfits can do good things. And, wonder of wonders, they may even (begrudgingly) feel good about themselves. We can still laugh at the many scrapes Gregory gets into, but please, let’s see the good side of his humanity, too.
