Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules

Title: Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
Author: Jeff Kinney
Call Number: J Kinney
Reading Level: J

Greg Heffley is back and still surrounded by morons. The scrawny protagonist we have grown to love! Greg has been forced to join the swim team by his dad and hates it. His best friend Rowley is back from South America and getting all the attention from the peers much to Greg's jealousy. Rodrick, Greg's older aspiring rock star brother, is featured much more in this book as his band hopes to make it big. As you can expect, many crazy antics get in their way. Kinney has proved that he is more than a one book author and consistently keeps the character development and plot strong for a great series.

Bottom Line: Just like the first book, this is great for reluctant readers. If you have ever been the "wimpy kid", or had an older sibling, you can identify with Greg Heffley's hilarious view of the world.
