We bring you a wise-cracking collection of write-in-the-book activities immortalizing the triumphs of a smart-aleck youth. For the benefit of unauthorized snoops, it comes with a few fake, fill-in-the-blank, parent-praising journal entries. Other entries include the “What kind of fool am I?” quiz and the “What will you barely grow up to be?” fortune-teller. Throughout, directed activities share space with open-ended journal prompts. And don’t forget the handy pen that comes along with the book.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Christensen
Looking for a diary for someone who hates to write? With its explosive fonts, multiple choice questions and crazy lists, this is sure to engage even the most writing-averse. Using the provided pen, writers can design their own rock band, track the luck factor of their underwear, or pick their favorites from a variety of oddball choices—the beach or the mountains? Plain or peanut? Bert or Ernie? Sprinkled throughout are writing prompts that can be quick (five reasons it's great to be a kid) or more in-depth (what will you do differently from your parents?). Humor—sometimes subversive—is front and center, as exemplified by fake diary entries designed to be read by snoopy parents. Some entries feature drawing or doodling: readers can design t-shirts for their future rock band and draw pictures of their current and future self. Parents or teachers looking for a serious journaling exercise should probably look elsewhere, but kids looking for a quick, fun way to jumpstart some creative expression will find plenty of silly possibilities in this diary template.
