I was one of the funniest books I've read in a while. Great job! I picked it up after it was featured in the Borders email newsletter.
My favorite part was the chapter on Halloween. You expect your grandmother to clean up the TPing?!? Hilarious!
I look forward to your next installment.

Mr. Kinney,
My fifth grade son and I were shopping around for summer reading when we noticed your book. I bought it for him, and he read it in two days. (I read it whenever he put it down) He was even reading it by book lamp after lights out! I recommended the book to all of the moms on his baseball team, and all of their sons have since read it too. I am an English teacher myself and have a copy in my class library. I have recommended the book to all the teachers I know. We await the sequel eagerly! Thanks for such a terrific book! What a great story, especially for those reluctant to read! We love it!

Mr. Kinney,
You truly have the gift of writing. This book feels as if it was the true diary of a 7th grader. I am in 5th grade, and I am impressed on how you have studied the minds of kids. The thing about THE CHEESE TOUCH really happens, the brotherly arguments happen just as described, and more. When reading this, I almost feel as if it was my diary (only I don't have 2 brothers and I'm a girl.) Anyway, I wish you repeated success on the next books.

My son created a project based on your Wimpy Kid. As a result, many copies sold at his Chazy School Scholastic Book Fair. We would like to send you the project (lightweight, of course) ...perhaps it will give you an idea. Do you have a forwarding address or a publisher connection? Thank you.

it's not adults recommending this book that's making the difference at my school: it's kids handing it off to other kids. it's made its way around my classroom like wildfire. good work.

I really love this book

i do not like it do you?

My son is a first grader, and he is an advanced reader. He is still a little kid though, so he's too young to read scary stuff. We happened upon your site one day, and he loved what he read there, so I got him the book. He's been reading it to us every night, and last night we laughed until we cried. Thanks for helping us create a lasting memory.

sup Sir kinney

my name is houda im in year six and i go to hampden park public school. Me and my class have started to read diary of a wimpy kid series 1 and to me its funny, cool!! and the bast diary or should i say journal ive ever read!

my coolest teacher Mrs k also gave us a sheet which was from the net it was about the author. my class as well got some questionz for H/W which were:

a)How did Jeff Kinney begin writing 'diary of a wimpy kid'?
b)What is a multiplayer world?
c)Why does Jeff Kinney choose to write books in his free time rather than for work?

I wish you luck and can't wait to finish the rest of the series.

thank you!

I read this book to my fifth grade students the last 2 weeks of school. They loved it! It helped put a lighthearted spin on some very real fears they had about going to Middle School. THANK YOU!

Hello Mr. Kinney,
My son is in 5th grade and attends Special Education school. I have tried diferent types of books for him to read and nothing really has motivated him. Well, he got a hold of your book at school and has not been able to put it down since. He just finished your first book and for x-mas I bought him your second book. Thank you for motivating him to read and I can't wait to buy your new book in January 2009.
Happy Holidays...

I just have to tell you Mr. Kinney that your books have changed my daughter's life. I hope you will continue to write and not get too sidetracked with the movie thing. My daughter had never read a book on her own without being told or without help until this fall when she discovered your first book of the Wimpy Kid series. She came to my husband and I screaming, "I can read this!!!!" She had been diagnosed with a communicative learning disability which I strongly suspect is dyslexia in some form. The font that you use and the layout of your books make it possible for her to read without pause and so comprehension comes with ease. You have no idea how much of an impact this has had on my daughter's confidence. She has had the best academic year of her life! After 5 years of struggling in school she finally feels she is getting somewhere. Thank you so much. Keep writing!!!!
