I read Diary of a Wimpy Kid as a school task. I really liked it. It is very easy to read and there are very many short comic strips. Greg and Rowley are 'best friends', but Greg doesn't care about Rowley that much. Rowley is not so clever and Greg plays many tricks on him. But Rowely isn't Greg's only problem. He has to deal with his family every day - and that is not easy! Once Greg makes his little brother Manny swallow a ball of thread by accident. But when his mom asks Manny how big it was, he says 'as big as an orange'! I really liked the book, because I had to laugh out loud very often and because you don't have to concentrate that much to read it.
