Synopsis 

Hi, my name is Rowley Jefferson and this is my book. Now I have a diary just like my friend Greg...
Rowley's best friend Greg Heffley has chronicled his middle-school years in thirteen Diary of a Wimpy Kid journals. Now it's Rowley's turn to give his side of the story. But Rowley has agreed to tell Greg's story along the way, too. (After all, Greg says one day he will be rich and famous and the world will need to know how he managed it). But Rowley's stories about Greg might not be quite what his friend had in mind…

Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid: Rowley Jefferson’s Journal by Jeff Kinney, Part of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series


Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid is an amazing book full of illustrations as it is a biography of Greg written by Greg's best friend Rowley. I really like how the author had made the biography fun by adding both embarrassing and adventurous moments of friendship between Greg and Rowley. It was interesting to read when Rowley started writing the book for himself but his friend got really mad saying Rowley was stealing his idea. Then Later on Rowley changed it to his friend Greg's biography. This book is interesting as it has really good adventures and pranks that Rowley and his friend Greg had enjoyed. I enjoyed reading this book and would like to recommend this to all young kids.
