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!
He read the entire thing with no assistance. I am so proud of him. I am also thankful he found a series he enjoys that is written well, yet still simply enough he can read it without a struggle.
It's funny and cute much like the other books in the series and the movies.
I've read my share of random WK books, and they're not bad...
I feel little to none sympathy to Greg. He is horrible to his family and his best friend Rowley. Manny is annoying, Rodrick is selfish, the mum is always making them do things like keep a pig. Even the Dad doesn't have time for his family.
Most of the other books in this series I've read have been funny, but sadly this one wasn't
I hope your experience with this book was beter then mine.

In summary, another great book that fans of the franchise and characters will absolutely love.
I didn't read it with her put had a quick flick through and the quirky drawings are up to the same high standard as the previous books in the series. Jeff Kinney has really created a brilliant franchise here with books that appeal to both boys and girls and have wonderful funny drawings to break up the text
This fabulous book is all about a long family adventure with the Heffleys, that doesn't really go the way Greg Heffley would expect it to.
This book would be perfect for all Diary of a wimpy kid book lovers like me.
Don't forget that No.10 in the series is coming out soon!
The long haul is about a family who decide to go on a road trip, but everything that could go wrong does. It made me laugh out loud sometimes as it was very funny and the whole road trip idea was an ultimate disaster!
But as I read through it I started to lose the point of the book and soon got a bit bored, it's still a good book though.
Most of these books are multi themed but this one is different, there's the same theme all the way throughout.
But saying that I have noticed the problem seems to get worse and worse.
The 10th is a whole lot better, I like the idea but I think there should be another theme apart from the road trip.
