The sequel to Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Diary of A Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules was named New York Times bestseller and was adapted into film in 2011, so we already know that it is going to be a good read.
The story of Greg Heffley and his really annoying older brother Rodrick opens with Greg explaining just how bad his summer vacation was - whatever you do, don't ask him how he spent his holiday because he definitely doesn't want to talk about it.
So it’s no surprise that Greg wants to put it all behind him - and one event in particular - and start again in the new school year. Unfortunately, Rodrick knows all about it, and with an older brother and a diary holding all the details, there is no hiding the secret forever.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules sees the protagonist trying to make their way through school, impress girls, steer clear of the school talent show, and most importantly, keep his secret safe.
A fun, interesting and enjoyable read for older kids,
Here’s what our young reviewer had to say about the book:
"He had a penpal and he stole money from this friends house but he got away with it because he had it in his coat. Then he bought a schools project from his brother Roderick but he couldn't use it so then he had to do his own. It was a good book." Alexandra, 7, Wicklow.
