Over 87 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list! Meet Greg Heffley, the undersized kid living in a world where all the other boys in school are taller, meaner, and already shaving. He keeps a diary, but as he says “Don’t expect me to be all ‘Dear Diary’ this and ‘Dear Diary’ that.” Instead, this “novel-in-cartoons” is packed with hilarious illustrations, and Greg’s accounts read like a cross between Holden Caufield and David Sedaris.
