Booklist Reviews 2019 April #2

Greg Heffley has spent plenty of time in the spotlight, wouldn't you say? His best friend, Rowley, certainly thinks so, and this spin-off of the wildly popular Wimpy Kid series gives the beleaguered sidekick a chance to shine (sort of). It starts out well enough, with Rowley narrating his exploits in classic Kinney style, but soon Greg catches on and mayhem ensues. First, Greg insists Rowley write an official biography of Greg, but Rowley's anecdotes aren't particularly laudatory—in fact, Greg comes off as a pretty big jerk. Naturally, this only leads to more hilarity, particularly around Rowley and Greg's odd-couple friendship. As you'd probably expect, Kinney perfectly captures middle-school logic and relationships, especially the manic escalation of fights. Rowley emerges as a sweet if gullible kid, whose desire to be a good friend leads him down some questionable paths. Laughs abound, of course, and a roundup of lies Greg told Rowley is particularly hilarious. Kinney has mastered this format, and fans of the beloved series will be delighted by this fresh perspective.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This is certainly one of the biggest books to come out this year. Kinney's fans already know all about it, so plan accordingly! Grades 2-5. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

No fan of the Wimpy Kid series would argue that Greg Heffley's long-suffering sidekick, Rowley Jefferson, doesn't deserve a turn in the spotlight. And none will be surprised that as soon as Rowley claims it, Greg hijacks it for himself. What begins as Rowley's diary—illustrated in Kinney's familiar stick-figure style—quickly morphs into a biography of Greg, who insists that "there are gonna be a LOT of biographies about him one day," but he's giving Rowley the chance to write the first. What follows is a retelling of some indignities that Rowley has suffered at Greg's hands: Greg's manipulation of Rowley extends to every facet of their friendship, including cheating on a math test so thoroughly that he inadvertently copies Rowley's name onto his own paper. But Rowley remains an "awesome friendly kid" through and through—when the friends create original comics, Rowley's superhero, Amazing Guy, blocks attacks with rainbows and wears padded gloves "so he doesn't hurt the bad guys too much." His superpower, like Rowley's, is kindness. This series spinoff first appeared in 2018 (at half its present length) as a promotion for Scholastic Book Clubs. The fuller version will please fans, many of whom have long maintained that Rowley deserves better. Ages 8–12. (Apr.)
