Secrets have a way of getting out, especially when a diary is involved.
Whatever you do, dont ask Greg Heffley how he spent his summer vacation, because he definitely doesnt want to talk about it.
As Greg enters the new school year, hes eager to put the past three months behind him . . . and one event in particular.
Unfortunately for Greg, his older brother, Rodrick, knows all about the incident Greg wants to keep under wraps. But secrets have a way of getting out . . . especially when a diary is involved.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules chronicles Gregs attempts to navigate the hazards of middle school, impress the girls, steer clear of the school talent show, and most important, keep his secret safe.
"The hilarious interplay between text and cartoons and the keen familial observations that set Diary of a Wimpy Kidapart are just as evident in this outing, and are just as likely to keep readers in stitches. Ages 8-up." - Publishers Weekly.
"Kinney's clever cartoons (too slick to have actually been done by Greg) are just as funny as the ones in Diary #1." - Children's Literature.

"As before, the text, which is done in a legible hand-lettered-style font, is liberally interspersed with funny line drawings, many of which feature punch lines in speech balloons." - Kirkus Reviews.
