Book 1: Diary of a Wimpy Kid
The first book begins with an introduction to Gregory "Greg" Heffley and his middle school life. It takes place during his first year of middle school. The book also explains the "Cheese Touch" early on. It is just like cooties but more intense. In the book, a kid named Darren Walsh touches the cheese with his finger. It is passed around the school, and later gets to Abe Hall, who moved to California still holding the Cheese Touch
Book 2: Rodrick Rules
At the beginning, Greg explains how bad his summer was with his brother Rodrick, who knows a secret that Greg is trying to keep. When Greg returns to school, he finds out he still has the Cheese Touch, but he gets away with passing it on to a new kid, called Jeremy Pindle.
Later, it is clear that Greg and Rodrick are always broke, so their mother starts the Mom Bucks program. Then, Rodrick throws a huge party and trashes the house, forcing Greg to clean it up with him
Book 3: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw
As a continuation of the second book, this novel rounds out the second semester of Greg's seventh grade school year.
The book starts with Greg's New Year's Day. The follow-up is Greg's Christmas, which is similar to Christmas in the first book; Greg gets nothing he likes from anyone. Uncle Charlie gives Greg a "laundry hoop" and Greg's mother, inspired, starts making Greg do his own laundry. Due to Greg's laziness, he does not do his laundry and does not plan to either. This plays a huge role later in the story.
Mentioned early in the story, Greg's father is becoming fed up with Greg's "wimpy" ways. Also, the "baddest teenager on our street", Lenwood Heath gets shipped out to military school, sparking an idea in Frank's head that plays a huge role in the story. Later, the Heffleys see Lenwood at a ticket booth with a crew cut, proper and incredibly polite. This causes Frank to decide to enroll Greg into military school, Spag Union, which takes place during Greg's summer vacation. Greg tries in vain to change his father's mind, such as doing activities such as soccer and Boy Scouts. However, they do not work. Therefore, Greg tries to impress Holly again, but it does not work at all. Finally, he settles for the sad fact he has to settle for Spag Union. But his summer won't be bad if he took some memories with him
Book 4: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
The book opens with Greg Heffley and Rowley Jefferson going to his father' country club after school closes for the summer, but Greg is kicked out due to his complaining of the smallest of predicaments. The beach trip that he was looking forward to is canceled due to lack of money, so the Heffleys resort to going to the town pool, which Greg hates because of its hairy and rotund visitors.
Later, Greg and Rowley have a sleepover together, and watch a horror movie obtained from Greg's older brother, Rodrick. After the movie, Greg and Rowley become scared of a muddy hand that might strangle them, which was in the movie. Unfortunately for Greg, his mother finds out about the movie after Greg's father told her when he found them sleeping in the bathroom, and starts a reading club in which he is the only participant after two days. The reading program, however, is put to a stop when Mr. Jefferson arrives with a huge $83 bill that Greg and Rowley spent on fruit smoothies at the country club, and he forces the boys to pay it off
