Wimpy Kid Read-alikes
So far, Jeff Kinney has released seven volumes of his phenomenally popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid books – a series that I have seen 2nd to 7th grade students enthusiastically devour. Want more illustrated chapter books? Try handing these to young readers hooked by Greg Heffley’s comic missteps:
Angleberger, Tom. The Strange Case of Origami Yoda series.
Morse, Scott. Magic Pickle series.
Moss, Marissa. Amelia’s Notebook series.
Peirce, Lincoln. Big Nate series.
Russell, Rachel. Dork Diaries series.
Scieszka, Jon. Spaceheadz series.
Vernon, Ursula. Dragonbreath series.
