Children can now read the first four of Amos Lee’s hilarious diaries (with a new look!) in one collection.

Amos Lee is famous for the wrong reasons: he is the first boy in the world to write his diary on the toilet. In this series, Amos and his best friends confront a bully at school, he enters a tween idol contest and enlists his sister WPI (Whiny, Pesky and Irritating) to help, and he gets really, really famous...on TV!

This award-winning, bestselling series has been translated into several languages and adapted into a television show since it debuted in 2009. Now a new generation of young readers will be introduced to the young diarist.
