Product description

Book Two of the hysterical comic-strip series which has taken the bestseller lists by storm! It’s a brand new year, and as Greg starts a brand new journal, he’s keen to put the humiliating (and secret!) events of last summer firmly behind him. That’s the good news. The bad news is that someone knows all of Greg’s most embarrassing secrets, and is determined to spill them – his evil big brother Rodrick. Rodrick’s got the upper hand. Rodrick rules! Aaaarrgh! How on earth will Greg make it through this new school year with his cool(ish) reputation intact? Another hilarious diary which perfectly captures the issues that young boys secretly worry about. Boys and reluctant readers will lap Greg’s misadventures up.

    Rodrick Rules-in simpler and the most fun way can be described as how an elder sibling always controls the younger ones and can even reach to a point of manipulating them. Make sure to wear diapers while reading this because I know every reader would pee their pants whilst reading Rodrick Rules.
