Book review: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life

Image shows the cover of a children's book, Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life by Rachel Renée Russell. The cover image shows a comic-style sketch on what looks like a post-it note. A girl is reading on a school bench. Behind her two other girls are talking, sharing secrets.

Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life by Rachel Renée Russell, Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, ISBN 9781416980063

Alma reviewed the school’s copy of this book.

Do you like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series? Well then, I think you should read Dork Diaries: Tales From a Not So Fabulous Life because it is funny.

This story is about a girl named Nikki who gets bullied by MacKenzie and her friend. They tried to change who she is. One reason I like this book is because it’s cool. In the story I like the part where they do a zombie dance. Another reason I like this book is because it’s funny. For example the tooth fairy gets trapped in Nikki’s pillow and Nikki throws the pillow in the washing machine. A third reason I like this book is because the words are even interesting. It looks like a real diary.

I hope you go get this book and read it right away. I recommend this for kids ages 4 to 7. I give this book 10 out of 10 stars.
