As the mother of an eight year old son, I would like to thank author Jeff Kinney for the entire "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series. His books, more than any others, hit my son at the right time. I know that Sam would not be as into reading as he is if it weren't for the entertaining novels by Kinney about Greg Heffley, his best friend Rowley and his family.
The Moore family went to the movies yesterday to check out "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules"--we'd all read the book together and the movie was great too! Just like the first, it stayed true to the book. The acting was perfect for the film as well. Sam gave it five stars--he loved it!
