" This book has lots of detail. Also it was written by his younger brother. : ) I found lots of facts about him. " said.

" Another great biography for kids about a student favorite author, Jeff Kinney. Interesting insight into his life and his determination and perseverance to accomplish his dreams. " said.

" The writing isn't fantastic, but it is so interesting to learn about the author of the famous Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I loved reading about how Kinney originally wanted his book/books to be geared toward adults, but his publisher changed the intended audience to kids. No wonder I love them so much! " said.

" This is my first time reading a biography from this series and it was quite good. I especially liked reading the impact of his 5th grade teacher on his artwork and writing. I was surprised to read that Jeff Kinney still has a day job - designing computer games for Pearson. Another fun connection was the relationship between Kinney and Lincoln Pierce, author of the BIG NATE series. A delightful read! " said.

" This book is definitely recommended because it's really detailed and you have got to be surprised when you see who wrote the book. " said.

"I've now read four of these Who Is/Was books in a row. They are pretty well-written, better than the I Survived Series. As are many books written for 8-12 year olds, they tend to glamorize the person's life and gloss over the troublesome or controversial spots. One thing I've seen in the ones I've just read: Dr. Seuss, Jeff Kinney, Barack Obama, Steven Spielberg. . . they weren't very avid students. They had greater passions to follow than grubbing for points and sucking up to teachers. I think I'll remind my own students of that. " said.

" Tells a lot about Jeff Kinney and his family and his timeline from child to when he dies (Great Book)! " said.

" I am surprised to find Jeff Kinney in this series. I have read most of his early books and I used to find it funny but I think i have lost interest in the latest few. I find the story has lost its magic and I don't seem to enjoy it as much as before. On the other hand, I still love Big Nate's comic strips and I hope to read about Lincoln Peirce in this series one day. " said.
