Diary of a Wimpy Kid Wiki

Darren Woodley (also known as Garrett Newson in the online book) is a boy in Greg Heffley's Boy Scout troop who attends a father-son campout with his brother Marcus during the events of The Last Straw. He resurfaces in Big Shot. where he becomes a member of Greg's basketball team.


The Last Straw[]

Darren and Marcus are put in a tent with Frank Heffley, as their father couldn't come. They horse around in the tent even though Frank keeps telling them to go to sleep. At one point, Darren throw a football at Marcus that hits him in the stomach, causing him to wet his pants. When Darren laughs, Marcus goes berserk, bites Darren, and refuses to let go. After Frank manages to pry them apart, he takes Darren to the emergency room and calls Susan at 10:00pm to inform them of what happened.

The incident ruins Frank's perception of Troop 133 and his son Greg, who was unable to go to the campout after getting sick.

Big Shot[]

Darren and Marcus are seen at numerous events, mainly in Greg's cut basketball team ran by Dhruv Patel. Greg mentions that they could be decent athletes if they didn't fight all the time, which is also proven to be true in The Last Straw.
