A Hundred Years Ago by Roderick Heffley

Sometimes I sit and wonder
About stuff I don't know
Like what the heck the earth was like
A hundred years ago.

Did cavemen ride on dinosaurs?
Did flowers even grow?
We could all guess but that was back
A hundred years ago.

I wish they built a time machine
And they picked me to go
To check out what the scene was like
A hundred years ago.

Did giant spiders rule the earth?
Were deserts filled with snow?
I wonder what the story was
A hundred years ago.

This is only a small sample of the laughs you will enjoy in both of the Diaries of a Wimpy Kid  by Jeff Kinney.  My daughter brought these home and I almost feel ashamed to say that she had to put off reading them because I was devouring them. Really a great find on my 7 year old's part.
