Diary Of A Wimpy Kid (Book 1) by Jeff Kinney

THE ONE WHERE IT ALL BEGINS!

'Let me get something straight: this is a JOURNAL not a diary... The other thing that I want to clear up right away is that this was MOM's idea, not mine.'

Things aren't going well for Greg Heffley. He's been thrust into a new school where undersize weaklings share the corridors with kids who are taller, meaner and already shaving. With his friend Rowley, Greg's desperate to prove his new maturity, which only going up a grade can bring. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, will Greg be able to reach the same heights of popularity as Rowley?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules (Book 2) by Jeff Kinney

It's a brand-new year and a brand-new journal and Greg Heffley is keen to put the humiliating (and secret!) events of last summer firmly behind him. But someone knows everything, someone whose job it is to most definitely not keep anything embarrassing of Greg's private: his big brother, Rodrick. Can Greg make it through this new school year with his cool(ish) reputation intact?

Greg Heffley's dad is on a mission! He's decided it's time for this wimpy kid to become, well, less wimpy and has planned lots of "manly" activities for him and his son. Greg somehow manages to find ways to get out of most of them, but when his dad threatens to send him to a military academy, Greg realises he's going to have to somehow shape up ... or get shipped out!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (Book 4) by Jeff Kinney

Greg Heffley's family are going to have to count their pennies this summer. That means, no beach holiday and lots of 'family togetherness'. Which doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun. The only good thing Greg has to look forward to is his birthday, but even THAT ends in a disaster. And when his dad brings home a brand-new addition to the family, Greg is outnumbered. It could be a real dog of a summer . . .

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth (Book 5) by Jeff Kinney

Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. Being older means you can live alone, eat whatever you want for dinner and don't have to share with your brothers. PERFECT. At least, that's what Greg thought, but it turns out there's a lot more to growing up like dealing with boy/girl dances, increased responsibilities and awkward changes.
On top of all this, he's fighting with this best friend Rowley, and is being dragged to his uncle's FIFTH wedding. Surely there's more to growing up than THIS?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever (Book 6) by Jeff Kinney

A snowstorm SHOULD bring nothing but fun. Hours in front of the TV, cuddling up with a blanket and NO SCHOOL ... But not for Greg Heffley.

But he's INNOCENT! Sort of. Is time finally up for Greg Heffley?

It's everyone for themselves as they scramble to find a date for the big day, and Greg's determined NOT to be left partner-less. His best friend, Rowley, doesn't have any prospects either but that's a small consolation...To make matters worse, his Uncle Gary has moved in and is taking over the whole house. Will Greg be lucky in love and get his home back?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck (Book 8) by Jeff Kinney

Things haven't been going all that well for Greg Heffley recently. For one thing, his best friend Rowley has a GIRLFRIEND, so now Greg is in the market for a new best friend. But after he's spent so long training him to be the perfect best friend, finding a 'new Rowley' won't be easy. And to top it off, his family (including his feral cousins) are coming to stay. Can Greg improve his luck before it's too late?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (Book 9) by Jeff Kinney

The Heffleys are off on a road trip! The chances of survival are ... quite small to be honest. Greg's idea of a good summer is air conditioning and lounging in front of the television. But his mum has different plans, and now his family are having an "authentic" summer, trapped together on a road trip. And Greg's soon battling petrol-station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender and a runaway pig. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure ­- and this is going to be one that the Heffleys will never forget!

Will Greg be able to survive a week out in the wild? Or will his school trip be a complete DISASTER?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down (Book 11) by Jeff Kinney

The pressure's really piling up on Greg Heffley. His mum thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his "creative side". As if that's not scary enough, Halloween's just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle. But then Greg has an idea. Maybe he can get his mom off his back by making a movie . . . and even become rich and famous in the process? Or will doubling down on this plan just double Greg's troubles?
