While looking for sketchbooks on Amazon, I noticed the list of similar items others had searched and four were sketchbooks, but one was the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid. This book is everywhere. My daughter has devoured each book in the series as soon as they hit the book shelves, and The Third Wheel (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book 7)
was no exception. She picked up her package after it arrived in the mail, went into her room, and stayed there reading until dinner time, when she'd finished the book.
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books are ones she wants to own, not check out from the library. She will read each book a few times, and will eventually pass them down to her younger brother, if we're lucky. He tries to sneak peeks of the books, even though they're above his reading level.
The books are funny for all ages. I picked one when trying to determine if it was a book, a graphic novel, or what, and I found myself laughing, and reading page after page. I can see why it's so easy to lose an afternoon in these books.
If you're looking for a holiday gift or a stocking stuffer, this is a clear winner.
