Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School

My 8 year old son Reuben is an avid ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ fan and was thrilled when I was asked to blog about him getting the chance to read and review an excerpt of the yet to be released new book – Old School, the 10th book in this very popular series. I love seeing him read for pleasure and get engaged by the stories.

So Reuben, how did you find the new book?

I really liked it and think it will become a great book. I really like them anyway, Jeff Kinney is definitely one of my favourite authors ever. 

What was your favourite part?

Thats hard!!! I really liked when at the end the ‘fitness water’ supplies were raided to water the flowers – that was really funny.  But when he squirted lemon juice in his eye I nearly feel off my chair I laughed so much!

Why do you love Diary of a Wimpy Kid books?

The story always gets better for Greg through every book and I really love the pictures…they’ve really improved as each book has come out. I also like when its written like ‘GASP’ and ‘SCREAM’ as its fun and easy to understand whats happening.

What would you like to see Greg do next?

Ooooh *thinks*.  I’d love to see him become a celebrity for a week from say writing his autobiography or something and the world goes crazy for him. But he does something silly and it all goes wrong and he’s back to just being Greg again *laughs*

Next, we decided to have a go making the homemade Lemonade as featured in the book.  Here is the recipe courtesy of Puffin Books –  

Reuben was on recipe reading duties and my step sons were my kitchen assistants and taste panel! Apart from the cutting of the lemons they could do everything themselves which they loved.

The finished product was delicious!   And finally, here is Reubens selfie of us enjoying it as a family! If you fancy a fun activity during the summer holidays why not have a go too?

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School is released in the 3rd November and is available to preorder via Amazon here. We can’t wait to find out what happens next!!!
