My son begged me to buy this book, as he had already read the first in the series. When I saw the price for it on Overtock compared to what was being asked in a local retailer, how could I refuse. The book arrived very quickly and my son couldn't have been happier. He is eight and finished reading the book within five days. In fact, he enjoyed it so much that he spent extra time reading it to his little sister as her bedtime story. I have to say that I even found humor in the story. Overall, I highly recommend this book, and I am sure my son would agree. In fact, the only problem I have now is getting him to quit asking me when the next in the series is comming out. Thanks again Overstock.
Ordered this for my son and it showed up quickly and was exactly what he wanted. Great series and the book was in brand new condition. Recommended highly!

I am reading these books to my six year old son and I find myself reading them any chance I get too because they are so funny. They are well thought out and put together. I wish they had books like these when I was growing up, I would have loved to read all the time!!!!!!!!
My kids loved this story, and I mean loved it! They were cracking up through the whole thing. My boys are 13, 8, and 6 and they all enjoyed it so much I'm on overstock today looking for more in this series. It's hard to find appropriate entertainment for kids these days, but this book is funny without all of the junk most authors throw into their books to "appeal" to kids. As a homeschooling mom, I'd recommend this book as a good one to get reluctant readers excited about reading; the humor keeps them wanting more.
My nephews are typical of today's kids: short attention spans, more interested in video games than books. I bought them the whole series of "Wimp" books, as well as one journal a piece. Not only did they love the books and read them front to back in a couple of days, but they each started writing in their journals immediately. The whole "Wimpy" series was such a huge hit, my 3 year old nephew was upset that he, too, didn't receive a journal to write in! In my book, anything that can get a 10 and 12 year old to read for two days straight, but also motivate them to start writing down their feelings and experiences has to be a good thing.
I read books to my brother, who has autism, every night. He only picks certain books to read, and he picked this one. I thought it sounded ridiculous at first, but then we got into it, and it was great! He has so much trouble focusing on books, but he was stuck to this one like glue! It is so funny, and great for kids! I Loved This Book!
