This series is recommended by Izzy in our interview Best Series for 10 Year Olds, in our By Kids for Kids section.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid (book 17). One of the top three bestselling series of all time for 8-12 year olds about the misadventures of Greg, a lazy and manipulative schoolboy. This series, which has very little text, is credited with getting a lot of reluctant readers into reading.
