Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Recommended Posts

Anyone else remember those books/movies? My biggest memory is reading the original webcomic on Poptropica after school. I was in middle school at the time, so, ideal age demographic, and it captured the way it worked oddly well.

I read the original webcomic on a website called Funbrain or something like that when I was in elementary school.

I only got the first of the books when it came out, but I remember being very disappointed with it compared to the webcomic. Most of the content was left for later books and some names and such were changed. Looking back, I can understand that it's impossible to fit the whole story into a book that size, but kid me just felt like a bunch of stuff was "left out".

Agreed. Nothing hit the highs of the original webcomic. Also, apparently FunBrain is owned by Poptropica. I just had to look that up. I remembered both names for some reason.

Been reading them since the second book came out. Saw the first three movies and refuse to see the fourth. 21 years old and I still get the new book every year and read it within a day or two. While not perfect, they're enjoyable reads even today and I always look forward to seeing what Greg Heffley's up to next. If there's a fifteenth book coming out this year, I'll be getting that one for sure!
