Greg Was Right: It’s NOT a Diary

Greg gave us fair warning, right there on page one of the first book: THIS IS NOT A DIARY.

Seven books into the series—eight books as of November 5—and it’s still not a diary.

But that’s the best thing about the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. It’s not just a diary. It’s a record of Greg’s thoughts, feelings, and personal experiences, AND a collection of book reports, school projects, letters, and newspaper clippings—all those goodies he’ll be grateful to have someday.

Through the years, my mom has kept everything of mine. My diaries, book reports, poems, art projects, a letter I wrote to the president of Mexico…although now that I think about it, the fact that the letter is part of this collection makes me wonder whether she ever actually sent it off. Anyway, I’m so grateful that my mom hung on to all this stuff, because by having this window into the past, I can better understand why I am who I am today.

A collection of my personal mementos—diaries, letters, favorite books, photographs. You’ll notice I recently added something new to the pile.…

I’m lucky to have these things—every kid should be so lucky! Greg’s lucky too. Because having these things means that someday he’ll get to have the same pleasure of reading his “diaries” as we’ve had. (Well, he would if he weren’t a fictional character.)
