Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Jamie is writing overtime in her diary because nothing makes sense. Her best friend turns into a backstabber. Her worst enemy, the impossibly gorgeous and popular Angeline, turns out to be just irresistible as her reputation suggestions. And the Brad Pitt-delicious Hudson Rivers still isn't interested in her! What can a girl do but scribble? An amusing story about the small traumas of growing up.

Dear Dumb Diary, by Jim Benton (Scholastic, $4.99).
___
Middle-schooler Jamie Kelly is mad. She's mad at Angeline, the most popular and prettiest girl in the world (or at least in Mackerel Middle School).
Jamie is mad at the fact that she has to go to middle school in the first place. She's mad at her disapproving parents, and mad at Hudson Rivers (the eighth cutest guy in her grade) for not noticing her. Her only hope is to console in her diary, the one place where she can spill her heart out and draw pictures of how things really look.

Dear Dumb Diary (Scholastic, $4.99) by Jim Benton is a look at Jamie's life in her own words. Her adventures include avoiding trouble (or getting into it) with her partner in crime, Isabella; rating people on a "Loser"
scale; dealing with crazy cafeteria monitor, Miss Bruntford; and observing and caring for her do,g Stinker.

You'll laugh out loud at what this girl has to say.

PRAISE FOR JIM BENTON AND DEAR DUMB DIARY:

PW calls Jamie a “feisty protagonist.”

“Told in knee-slapping diary entries…Jim Benton delivers a wonderfully silly series that combines his knack for knowing what kids love to read with fun illustrations. Young audiences will eat up Jamie's diary descriptions…while parents are sure to see their kids beg for more Dumb Diary books.” -- The Barnes & Noble Review

"This book's witty and satiric sense of humor is sure to resonate with kids and make these books a must-have.” –BIG BLUE DOT Trend Update

“Thanks for making reading so much fun!” --Jennifer L.

“My daughter recently purchased your first edition of your Dear Diary books at a school book fair. I must admit. . . I don't know who enjoyed the book more, my daughter or me. (I am 31 and my daughter is 9!!) I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard! It was hysterical! Congrats on a great new series!” --Marisa W.

“My 9-year-old daughter loved your book! She actually laughed out loud while reading it! It is quite an accomplishment to get my daughter to sit still long enough to read as she is constantly doing cartwheels and backflips!…I look forward to getting her more of your books (and having her sit still for a little while!)” ---Lourdes F.

    Read the whole series dear dumb diary!!!!!!!!

    Dear reader, The book I¿m going to recommend to you is from the series Dear Dumb Diary, and the book is called Never Do Anything, Ever. Something I enjoyed a lot in this books that it is really funny , and that I think the book is realistic fiction so it could really happen and live that embarrassment(I¿m not gonna tell you the embarrassment because the point is for you to read the book). I chose this book because when I read Dear Dumb Diary, I kind of figured out that it was about a diary, so I opened the book and saw.... Saturday 1 Dear Dumb Diary......... so on. I recommend this book to kids from second grade to fifth grade, and specially to kids who like to read other persons diary(like me!)
