Diary of a Wimpy Kid all of them. This worked out beautifully for my kid however he watched the movie first before I got him reading the books but the books were absolutely hilarious. He said he had the visuals of the character is in his head when he was reading the books and I believe that helped him throughout all of the books he read.
