On a recent trip to Barnes & Noble, the one where I was rendered obsolete, Stinkerbell begged and groveled for me to get her the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I had heard that these cartoony-journal books were popular with the tween set, but I didn't really know anything about them until I was forced to preview one for Stinkerbell.
I'm almost ashamed to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed the series. Why, you ask? Well, because the books are full of tween humor. Um, yeah. Humor for the immature and terribly awkward.
I don't know why I'm so surprised.
You're just going to have to pick one up for yourself to understand what I'm talking about. But whatever you do, watch out for the Cheese Touch.
Oops, did I say too much?
