About Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid: Rowley Jefferson’s Journal
Introducing the newest Wimpy Kid author—Rowley Jefferson! Rowley’s best friend Greg Heffley has been chronicling his middle-school years in thirteen Diary of a Wimpy Kid journals . . . and counting. But it’s finally time for readers to hear directly from Rowley in a journal of his own. In Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid, Rowley writes about his experiences and agrees to play the role of biographer for Greg along the way. (After all, one day Greg will be rich and famous, and everyone will want to know his life’s story.) But Rowley is a poor choice for the job, and his “biography” of Greg is a hilarious mess.
Speaking of an awesome kid – this one right here has a heart of gold! I love that he’s not afraid to say what’s on his mind while being sensitive to others’ feelings. He is so smart and friendly too!
Both of my boys are avid readers – spending upwards of one hour each night reading in bed. With my husband being an educator, we made sure to introduce the boys to books at very early ages, and it benefited them greatly in school.
My littlest got his hands on the Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid book first because he just so happened to be home sick from school the day it arrived. He read several chapters in one sitting and couldn’t wait to tell me about it! With a mix of text and drawings, kids find familiarity with the new series. I love that Rowley exhibits the characteristics of an awesome, friendly kid through his positive outlook, enthusiasm, and kindness.
Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid: Rowley Jefferson’s Journal is now in stores, and available to purchase online!
Greg Heffley, the titular hero of the Wimpy Kid series, returns in Diary of a Wimpy Kid #14, out later this year!

My oldest is getting better at reading, we haven’t read many chapter books yet but I’ll keep this one in mind for when she’s ready. I like to have an idea of books to offer that she might enjoy.
