Diary Of A Wimpy Kid

Drawing clip from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Ever since I bought the first 3 books of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid (initially for me to read first!! then to pass to Ilham when he is bigger) just over a year ago, Ilham is hooked on the books. He simply love them. He has been rereading them for many times now, I think the first book alone, he reread 5/6 times, and everytime, he laughed just as if reading it for the first time :D Now, had he shown similar interest when reading his Muqaddam, I would feel very very happy indeed !!! I don't blame him, I enjoyed reading the books as well, they made me smile even reading the first page...

First page of the 1st book..

Anyway since then, we have bought all the 6 books available, including the latest one "The Ugly Truth". The only one we have not bought is the Diary of a Wimpy Kid : Do-It-Yourself Book. They even have a movie made based on this book and Ilham had been so looking forward to see the movie which was released in the summer, but somehow the movie was not shown here!! What a shame...

The 4th and 5th books

The latest book

Ilham has been so inspired by these books that he even has his own diary err.. journal to write, just like Greg the main character. He even draw himself exactly like Greg, just scroll to the bottom and you will know what I mean.

Initially he had been writing quite regularly, but now since summer he had been distracted by other activities because we went back home to Malaysia. Sadly to say, since he started school here at the British School, he has not been very productive in his writing. For that very reason I have been very "persuasive" in my encouragement for him to write :D And this is what happen when I did that. Instead of writing something interesting that happened to him, he wrote this.... (hope you can read)

Part 1/4

Part 2/4

Part 3/4

Part 4/4

I told him to "put your heart in writing" and that is exactly what I got - a drawing of his heart on a plate !!!

Dear Cheqna,

He was repeating the sentenses!! and he drew me exactly like the mom in the book!!

The books are funny.. I purposely put the first page of the bk for your benefit he..he.. Baru2 ni Man beli hardcover(yg purple tu) kat KLIA rm65 tapi kat sini baru 13euro & yg paperback pula rm43 uhh.. mahal!!! A set of 1st 3 books(paperback), u can get for 18euro. I rasa murahla sbb rate dlm 4.1 kan.. If u want I can buy bila school buat order nanti...

Dear TK,

It's a fav amongst kids at ISA. Bila ada expo buku, buku tu memang laris & cepat habis. Dutch version pun ada. I memang enjoy baca :D My grand nephew yg sama anak u pun suka. Memang berbaloi beli :D

Nana said...

Kecik2 dah pandai lukis jantung. Ada bakat ni! :)
