  1. I haven't read any of these books, though I recognize many of the authors. My son listened to Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and he seemed to think it was hilarious. I was afraid he might not enjoy the middle school humor, since he's always homeschooled -- but I guess eleven-year-old boy humor is universal! :-)
