If You Like Diary of a Wimpy Kid…

October 27, 2009

Since every time I mention Diary of a Wimpy Kid on this blog my blog hits go way up, I decided to post my Diary of a Wimpy Kid Readalikes list here.  These books all share some aspect with the Wimpy Kid books, irreverent humor, illustrations, or the trials of middle school.  There is sure to be something here for every Wimpy Kid fan.
