Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is currently the most borrowed book for kids in the Weston Library!
Greg Heffley knows middle school is tough, and the other kids are tougher. What’s a kid to do? Keep track! This fun series has gained so much popularity over the past few years, Greg has to be the most famous middle-school student in the world. The tales of his exploits in and out of the classroom are hilarious, for kids and adults alike.
But what’s a kid to do when he or she has read the entire series? (Well, besides wait for the next installment.) Our answer–find a new series! All the titles in our display are read-alikes…other books with characters “enjoying” their school experiences and sharing their stories through diaries, cartoons and funny stories. Come in and try one!
