Hilarious! As good as Diary of a Wimpy Kid!

Say hello to Hal Rifkind. He is a 6th grader that is a pretty typical boy, wanting to play video games with his best friend, dreams of the ultimate, coolest transportation, would love to have his own room and thinks history is boring, per Hal “history is the most boring thing on the planet!” Unfortunately, he is also facing the very real danger of failing history. While trying to navigate the pitfalls of 6th grade, with hand-me-down clothes, betrayals and a first dance, Hal, very realistically, loses his temper, comes up with a plan to try to sell the family house (so he can finally get his own room), tries out for the school play, ends up on YouTube and gets bullied. There are fart jokes, a very realistic rendering of a kid’s view of adult reasoning, and monkeys dancing on Mars. The illustrations are amusing, the characters, even the adults, are not just paper thin cut-outs and do interact with Hal. I think this book would work well for 4th-6th graders, there are no monsters (except some minor bullying), the lessons included are handled lightly and the story is amusing. Warning does end with a cliff hanger, but the next book doesn’t come out until spring of 2014! Hopefully your reader will enjoy this enough to read this and want the next one. I can definitely think of some worse series out there.

As funny as Wimpy Kid, if not funnier, but with a charm and sense of humor all its own. Get this for your girl or boy who likes comic books or cleverly illustrated novels. It is laugh out loud funny and pure kid-friendly.

My grand-kids love this. I think they're read it 10 times and they just howl with laughter. A pleasure to see. We are counting down to the release of the sequel.
