I took up residence on the Children’s Desk at the library about one year ago. Although I have been adored and admired by many, some people actually give me the cold shoulder. Can you believe that people say things like, “Oh, it’s a fake hamster. Whatever!” or “Let’s go. It’s not real.” I have even been called a rat! I want you all to know that I am listening, even if I don’t always physically react (my batteries run low sometimes, don’t yours?). And just for the record, I prefer the term faux.

If there's one series that I can count on my kids to read again and again, it's the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books by Jeff Kinney. My 11 and 9 year-old have both re-read each book multiple times, laughing along at Greg Heffley's antics. For anyone who has not yet picked up a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book (and there are now four in the series, with a fifth one due out sometime this year), here's a trailer to tell you a little more about them. You can also check out the series' Web site at http://www.wimpykid.com/. There's even a movie coming out on March 19th.
