    Dorks are the in thing

    My friend bought this for her 10 year old daughter and she loves it. She thinks it’s a really funny book and she can’t wait to get other books in the series. What a great book to encourage reluctant readers. It’s unusual as it is set out as a diary with doodles, drawings and cartoons, which makes it easy and fun to read.

    Loved it and can't wait to read another book in the series.

    My 8 yr old loved the book. She loved the layout as a diary form. She never felt overwhelmed reading it. She was excited to start reading it and couldn’t wait for me to buy her another story from the series.

    Easy read for young readers

    This book is a very easy read and is easy for kids to understand. We’ve had it not even a week and it’s become the new fav book to read before bed.

    Fun, entertaining and easy to read

    My niece is already half way through this book and loves it. She has already decided she wants to start a band and keep a journal. It’s great how it is presented as a ‘journal’ with handwriting and drawings etc. Even I enjoyed the parts I skimmed over before giving to her, I think I might need to take it back when she is done… Maybe I’ll have to get her the rest of the series for her birthday next month.

    Dorks rule

    What a great book. Kids love the way it is set out in diary form with lots of doodles, drawings and cartoons. It is different from most books and very funny, which encourages children to read. There are a few books in the series to continue reading. Make great presents.

    A keeper

    This is a great book. My lovely little sister read this book and said she couldn’t put it down until she read the whole thing. Being the big sister that I am, I decided to borrow it and cannot wait to tuck into it when my little ones are all asleep. I think I’m going to be a dork and love it too

    A great series

    DORK DIARIES: TV STAR was the second book from the Dork Dairies series that my daughter read. She has since gone on to read the whole series.
    I think it is the way the Dork Daires are written and presented that make it a hit with independent readers.
    The font is large, the writing format used is dairy entries, making the book easy to put down or pick up as required, and there are lots of illustrations.
    For parents with tween girls in particular, who are wanting to get their kids to read more,
    the DORK DIARIES series is an excellent place to start.

    Great read for kids

    My girls really loved the dork diaries. They found them easy to read and very funny. The books are great for kids aged around 7-12 years. My girls are 8 and 11 years and really liked theinclusion of drawings I the books and it is really great that there is a series of these books as there is always something to look forward to. I would recommend these books to anyone who loves a good funny read.

    It's a winner!

    My Eight year old is simple loving the dork diary series. She has just recently finished reading DORK DIARIES: TV STAR by Rachel Renée Russell and is very eager to read the rest of the series. I think some of the appeal is format of the book, being diary entries, the large print, and the illustrations. It’s a winner in our house.

    Wants to read the whole series

    DORK DIARIES: TV STAR by Rachel Renée Russell is the second book in the series of Dork Diaries that my eight year old had read. Again, she enjoyed the book immensely, reading it from cover to cover in one sitting. The large, easy to read format is ideal for early readers and the content is simple, funny and engaging for youngsters from around 7-12 years of age. My daughter is now desperately keen to read the rest of the series.

    Daughter has shown much more interest in the series!

    When we first won the book my Daughter – 10 read it but it was a bit of a chore. Since then she has grown to love the series and has not bought & read the whole collection!

    Dork Diaries for the Win

    As with the Wimpy kid diaries, my young reader is in love with the Dork Diary book. She shares them with her friends, tells me the story lines, and doesn’t argue at bedtime when it’s time for reading. Love any book that gets my kid reading and sharing with her friends.

    It is fun and interesting for young ones.

    I know some young teens or ‘tweens’ that have read this and enjoyed it. They can find it relatable, fun and interesting. It is also a ‘big’ book which gives them a sense of pride when they finish it. I would definitely promote this book for mothers to give to their children.

    Fun for kids!

    I got the DORK DIARIES: TV STAR book for my daughter and she loved it! It had kept her entertained for days while she read it. I liked that the story is aimed at kids who are not so perfect and also that it is in diary format, which is easy to read and absorbs the reader into the daily action. I’ve been asked to get more books from her series!

    fun book

    Its a two way book which I have realized just now. First obviously it is a book for reading. It has nice big bold black letters that makes it easy to read. Its a fun story that is hard to put down back the shelves. Plus factor is that it can be a colouring book too. Lots of pictures and its ideal for creativity.
