Point of View

Jeff Kinney tells his novel “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School” in the first-person reflective perspective from the point of view of Greg Heffley. The entire novel is composed as if to resemble Greg’s diary. It is full of written entries and drawings pertaining to the entries. Because Greg himself is meant to be writing the entries, the narration is in the first-person from Greg’s point of view. The experiences that are described in the diary have all happened to Greg directly, and Greg himself is setting them down on paper. The reflective aspect of the narration comes from the fact that Greg is writing about the events after they have happened, and so Greg is reflecting, recalling, and thinking back about them as he is writing.
