He has an older kid named Rodrick and he is trouble maker, he lies and he will always get Greg into some sort of trouble. He also mas a little brother named Manny. He never gets in trouble even though he should and he gets anything he wants. Once when it was Christmas and Manny was going through the catalog and he circled what he wanted and he circled everything. And his Mom and Dad got him all of those things. It probably cost his parents way more than $10,000. Greg's best friend is Rowley Jefferson. Greg likes to play video games all the time. His mom and dad don't like him playing video games so he was banned. His dad said that he should go outside and play sports but he went to Rowley's house to play video games.

Likes or Dislikes about the Book:
I like this book because number one it is really funny. Number two I can relate to Greg. It contains a ton of vocabulary and I really like how the author made it feel like that I was in the book. Another reason I like this book is that I can learn a lot of advice for when I go to middle school
