Greg Heffley's best friend, Rowley Jefferson, has been stood on the side-lines for too long.
This World Book Day he is taking centre stage, and writing a journal that's all about him . (Oh, except he will also be acting as Greg's biographer, as one day Greg will be rich and famous.) The only thing is, Rowley isn't really up to the job as biographer, and it turns into a hilarious rambling mess! This HUGELY EXCITING Wimpy Kid World Book Day book is the opening to the BRAND NEW Wimpy Kid story by Jeff Kinney, Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid, available 9th April!

Rowley's journal is a new window into the Wimpy World, and one fans won't want to miss!

I liked this book because it is an extremely hilarious story.  I like the diary of a wimpy kid books but this one is very unique as this time Rowley is the one who tells the story and I don’t think that his drawing is as good as Greg! This book was really quick to read and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good laugh! I think it would be good for children aged 8+.

World Book Day books are normally either too short or too boring.  This year; one word I could describe it.  PERFECT.  This is a decently long world book day novel while being interesting and keeping the reader hooked till the end.  This fantastic novel is a spin-off book to the diary of a wimpy kid series by Jeff Kinney.  It is about Rowley Jefferson (a character in the diary of a wimpy kid series) and his best friend Greg Heffley.  They, together, have loads of hilarious stories to tell.  If you pick this up to read this at World Book Day, your in for a treat! :D


I would recommend this book to children aged 7+.  It is honestly hilarious and any child in this age range would love this book.  If you are reading this before World Book Day then have a good one.  If you are reading after I bet yours was amazing!

Thank you for reading!

Diary of Greg Heffley's Best Friend is a very funny book. The illustrations are different from the Wimpy Kids ones though. Greg and Rowley's heads are more egg shaped and they don't have noses or ears. Rowley is the narrator in this book. Greg is really mean in it, with all his tricks on Rowley, far worse than in the other books. It does show you that if you are mean to others, you can be punished by them or in unknown ways. I liked the part about how Rowley's Grampa became Bampy and how Rowley thinks he came back as a ghost. This is a great book for Diary of the Wimpy Kid fans.

Tom got a voucher from school and he knew about this book I hunted high and low to get it, it seems a very popular choice and both Tom and Charlie were fighting over it.

Both boys really enjoyed this book because it was extremely funny. They have read ALL of the  'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' books,  so knew about the two main characters.

Normally Greg writes the books but in this book his best friend Rowley writes it, both boys want him to write some more.

We highly recommend this book to any 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' fan and have our fingers crossed for more.

This WBD book is a no-brainer for any young Wimpy Kid fan.  A good length short story, telling another side to the diaries narrated usually by Greg Heffley,  this is by his best friend Rowley.  Rowley has a very different take on life to Greg and I think this could be a refreshing change for those of us who have listened to the stories over and over!!!  At the back is the first chapter to another book that Wimpy Kid fans might enjoy - good for diverting your Heffley fans onto something new!

This book is really funny! it is a biography of Greg Heffley by his best friend Rowley Jefferson. I like that that the different chapters have different stories about Greg and Rowley. my favourite parts where when Greg shows Rowley a magic trick and it turns out to be a trap and when Greg makes an invisible barrier in the middle of his room. This book made me laugh a lot and i really enjoyed it. I would recommend to Diary of a wimpy kid/big Nate fans age 8 or 9 plus.

I really enjoyed this book because it was extremely funny. I have already read a 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' book so I knew about the two main characters. Normally Greg writes the books because he is the Wimpy Kid but in this book his best friend Rowley writes everything. Greg and Rowley have some really great adventures but Greg is sometimes mean to Rowley and plays lots of tricks on him. My favourite character in the book was Bampy who is Rowley's grandad because all he says is 'Bampy' really loudly. Part of the book had Greg and Rowley's comic series Zoo-Wee Mama! This was the best bit because it was hilarious. The pictures in the book are all in black and white and pretty funny. I also really liked all the titles to the different chapters. I highly recommend this book to any 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' fan.

This book is very good, but I have left it on 4 stars because it wish it had been longer. It is about Greg Heffley, but is written by his best friend Rowley Jefferson.  The book is a mixture of cartoon illustrations and writing. This is a really good book, and I would recommend it to ages 8+.
