We spent 27 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. 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 picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best diary of a wimpy kid book on Amazon.

Fed up with crowding on the east coast, Joe fled for the open spaces. He now lives in the intermountain west where he stays busy with work, children, and grandchildren. When he's not writing or researching, he's probably hiking in the desert or skiing in the mountains.
