Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6–9—The Crypt-Keeper and his gruesome group return. Two stories are devoted to Glugg, who has cartoon adventures just like Jeff Kinney's Greg Heffley, except that Glugg is dead with flies buzzing around his head. It is a "dead-on" Kinney impersonation, complete with an obnoxious older brother, "Rock." The third selection, "DieLite," is a parody of Twilight with a loser, lovesick "Dedward" and the further adventures of Thomas Donnelly. It is a moody, dramatic piece. Readers will enjoy seeing what befalls these familiar characters in these twisted tales.—Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT

    Do not buy!! Not suitable for children under 12-15

    This book was recommended to me when I bought Diary of a Wimpy Kid for my 7 year old. This book contains graphic pictures that are not appropriate for children reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I'm shocked that Barnes & Noble would even recommend it.

    I would have given it 0 stars, but was not allowed to do so

    Not Part of the Wimpy Kid Series - this is a parody!

    There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding this book. It is NOT part of the Wimpy Kid series. Barnes and Noble is not really "recommending" this book for those of you who purchased the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series; it shows up because people who bought those books also bought this one. This book is not for younger kids-- it says right in the description that it is for ages 12 and up. It is a parody of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, also containing a parody of Twilight. It is part of a different series: "Tales from the Crypt," which is a horror/humor series aimed at older readers.

    Funny Book

    My 8 yr old grandson wasn't a big fan of reading until he started reading David Gerrold's books and now he's has read all of his books and looks forward to his reading time.

    Only 13+ years

    Although it was funny (I guess), I know for a fact that the pictures are very graphic. A couple of years ago, my brother (who was about 8 at the time) and I were looking up pictures of Diary of a Wimpy Kid on Google, when the cover of this book popped up. It gave my brother nightmares. I was just on here to see if it was a real book. I don't recommend the book to kids 12 and under.

    Recommended if you like horror/comedy

    It was cool, how they incorporated huge paranormal entities into the stories. I would like to read more of the series. It has no affiliation with the Wimpy Kid series.

    Response to well_read_kid

    Maybe YOU should read before writing a review.
    The writers have nothing to do with Jeff Kinney.

    Stupid book, by the way.

    Good Thing for Reviewers

    I have not read this "book" yet but who would pay eight dollars for a paperback book less than a hundred pages?!? Seriously over priced and by these comments this book should be at most $2
