He spent his childhood in the Washington, D. He attended the University of Maryland. After then when he published it online on Funbrain. This was actually a story about a middle school weakling named Greg Heffley.
I picked this up from son's shelf, because I had enjoyed the first book: But I am glad I did pick it up, however. Greg Heffley is a loser: He pours all this righteous indignation into the "journal" he will kill himself before he calls it a "diary"!
Jeff Kinney is a truly comic writer who has mastered the strength of the understatement. Greg's voice throughout the book is a sort of sardonic monotone-one is reminded of those sad-faced clowns who will have you in stitches.
The journal is pieced together in little vignettes, like a series of connected jokes-and the punchline is often a cartoon. I feel that authors should use illustrations more often, even in serious novels. In Vanity Fair, Thackeray's illustrations are as famous as his words.
Greg, in this book, has grown up a little from his previous outing. His sarcasm has taken on an edge, and the portraits he paints of his Dad and Mom are less than flattering. Yet, they are lovable, all the same. Jeff Kinney has written a book that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike.

Whatever you do, don't ask Greg Heffley how he spent his summer vacation, because he definitely doesn't want to talk about it.
Sophisticated may not be a word many associate with the Wimpy Kid books, but Kinney writes with a sophistication that belies the books' style funny and super smart.
