This is the best book you will find. This is my favorite book in the world because it is funny, and fantastic. My favorite character is Greg he is a dork and a geek, but a good friend. (No, forget that, a really, really, really, REALLY (Just incase you didn't get the other ones,) REALLY horrible friend.)
Rowley is a person that you need to worry about because he's not very smart.
Manny is very messy.
Rodrick...you do not want to know.
So as you can see it is a great family. I have all the books and I have read all the books. My advice GET WIMPY KID. If you like Big Nate you will like Diary of a wimpy Kid.
