Dog Days

This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in February of 2018. Reflecting a lively imagination reminiscent of Calvin and Hobbes' Bill Watterson, Jeff Kinney has created "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," which both parents and children can enjoy. Comprising 12 titles, the series follows the hilarious adventures of middle school weakling, Greg Heffley. The books feature the author's own illustrations for flavor, but this means they don't render well on Kindle. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best diary of a wimpy kid book on Amazon.

An avid reader and outdoors enthusiast, Joe earned his doctorate in literary studies before making the lateral leap from academia to technical writing. He now lives and works in the inter-mountain West where he creates technical and marketing content, including white papers, solution briefs, and courseware for some of the world’s largest information technology companies. With more than 14 years of experience in the field, he has learned more than he ever thought he would know about such enterprise IT topics as cloud computing, storage, databases, business software, and networking. When he’s not writing about business computing, he can be found outdoors, probably hiking with his family and dog.
