Hello, I’m Daneel and for his theme I’ve been reading the Diary of a Wimpy kid part one, by Jeff Kinny from the USA.
The genre of the book is comic, written as a diary, by the main character.
The main character is Gregory. He is 12 years old and lives in the US.
He is a schoolboy who always gets into all sorts of trouble.
Gregory also writes about other characters in his diary. For example about his mother, father, older brother Rodrick he is approximately 16 years old. He also has a younger brother called Manny, who is 3 or 4 years old.
Also important is his best and only friend Rowly. Rowly is the same age as Gregory.
This diary is about Gregory and he lives in a small town. He attends Junior High school.
The diary is about a few months of Gregory’s life. During this period he has to survive the problems he has at school, at home and at other places.
The problems he has are things like ; his younger brother Manny make’s a self-portrait at Gregory’s door. When Gregory tells his mother about it she does not punish Manny. She always stands up for Manny. Or his other brother Rodrick goes to Gregory’s room in the middle of the night, telling him to get up and go to school. When Greg is fully dressed and he goes down stairs and eats his breakfast his father comes down stairs and tells him that it’s 4 am. Greg tells him about Rodrick. When they get to Rodricks room they see him in bed, a sleep.
This all sounds very serious but it’s written in a very funny way.
I liked the book because it’s funny and it’s also easy to read. There are a lot of illustrations that make the story come alive.
The best part of the story is when Rodrick wakes up Gregory at 4 am. This is a very funny situation, also because I can imagine what it looks like if you are having breakfast in a dark kitchen in the middle of the night.
Most of the book is really funny, just the beginning starts a bit slow and is a little boring.
I do recommend this book to kids from 8 to 12 years old. If you are older it could be possible that it’s a little childish.
My favourite book is the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins it’s the first part of the Hunger Games trilogy. The book is very excising.
It’s a real page-turner.
I recommend this book to young adults.
