Diary of a Wimpy Kid Rodrick Rules

I stumbled upon the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid sometime back at the bookstore and it was so hilarious it left me in stitches. The second book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Rodrick Rules is equally a good read.
This book mostly features sibling rivalry between Greg and Rodrick, always clashing over little things like house chores etc.

Greg’s frustration with his brother was funny to read but yet it felt realistic. Though there was sibling rivalry there was also a show of brotherly love amongst the three siblings which was quite sweet in a way.

I enjoyed Greg’s antics of playing pranks on friends but the main event that I could relate to was the cover up of Rodrick’s house party while the parents were away.

I love Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It takes me back to when I was about Greg and Rodrick’s age. Though I never played pranks on friends and never had a house party without my parents knowledge (…IT’S THE TRUTH MUM!) I completely related to their experiences.

I love this book and already have the third book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid the Last Straw in my TBR pile.

Hi Natasha, I saw this series many times at the bookstores but didn't buy. MPH is having 20% discounts for them. :)
