EDITOR'S REVIEW

Our teters had great fun reading this book full of very silly, LOL ideas.

WHAT THE KIDS SAY

This book is such a great idea! With the fake diary, the fool tests, never again statements, the snap decisions, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.  My favorite is fake diary, though; I love how it is so easy you just fill in the blanks with the thing it says at the bottom of the blank! I guess it kind of sounds complicated at the time but it is really fun when you actually do it!  I think this is a really fun book to work on when you are bored along with practically all the Klutz’ books! It brings out the real immature in me.  I love the last part where you get to send a letter to yourself, draw a self portrait and a portrait of the future you.  You can compare the differences, then ten years later, actually see if you look like that!

I like to write things in it, like making your own diary. Reading it after wasn't so much fun because I'm not so interested in it.

I wasn't in love with this book. it would be a good activity if you have nothing else to do, but I'd rather do other things. when I'm tired, i like to lay down in bed and write in it. i liked you could put in funny words in the blank spaces. also, i liked when you had to make a quick choice between two things on the pages.

I thought some of the pictures were entertaining, but it looked more for boys. But it would be very entertaining for boys. But i was a girl.

I like to read the fake diary pages, they are kinda funny, I even filled in some of the balnks and drew some pictures in it.

I liked the examples that they gave like for the page : things I'll I would never do the things they wrote once!

I like the pages where you can answer the questions like : how many minutes can I juggle 3 tennis balls or can I find my shoes using only my sens of smell.  Well my shoes do stink a bit, I should be ab le to do that.

I like that the book is a bit like `diary of a whimpy kid`

I like the pages about lucky underwear..that is funny, you draw what your underware looks like..that could also be gross

WHAT ADULTS THINK

Parent

Well  made, good quality diary.  Unfortunately, it was not gender neutral and upon giving it to my daughter, she immediately rejected it as being 'for boys'.  She flipped through it and after seeing all the pictures inside of boys, she put it away and was never interested in using it again.  I think it would be interesting for boys of her age and would allow for practice in both reading and writing.  It appeared to have some fun activities.

Besides the fun they had filling in this book, it sparked my boys' interest in goofy diary keeping (and story telling). They each have their own creative writing notebooks now, which I really love!

As a parent, I was disappointed. I really like the KLUTZ toys, but my daughter didn't spend a lot of time on this.

My son (8) liked the diary format of the book. And finished reading it on our ride home! He cant wait to do some of the things like finding shoes by smelling :)

I like any book that encourages my son to read.  This book is easy to read, has

really funny pictures and

the ideas they give are not going to get him into trouble as they are

so extravagant they  are just funny to read

I like any book that encourages my son (9) to read. This book is easy to read, has really funny pictures and the ideas they give are not going to get him into trouble as they are so extravagant they are just funny to read.

FEATURES

Manufacturer Description

We know — “diary” sounds like it has a cute little lock and maybe a kitten on the cover, with pages to be filled with the sensitive writing of a tender soul. Yeah… this diary is nothing like that. We bring you a wise-cracking collection of write-in-the-book activities immortalizing the triumphs of a smart-aleck youth. For the benefit of unauthorized snoops, it comes with a few fake, fill-in-the-blank, parent-praising journal entries. Other entries include the “What kind of fool am I?” quiz and the “What will you barely grow up to be?” fortune-teller. Throughout, directed activities share space with open-ended journal prompts. And don’t forget the handy pen mounted right on the front of the book.
