Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now every kid can write like a Wimpy Kid!

 

An exciting companion to the bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.

 

“First of all, let me get something straight: This is a journal, not a diary.”

 

This innovative interactive journal based on Greg Heffleys own “diary” lets kids express themselves in an exciting new way. In Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book, kids will be asked: What was the best dream you ever had? The worst thing you ever ate? The best secret you ever heard? The most trouble you ever got in for something that wasnt even your fault to begin with? This Do-It-Yourself Book features art throughout, along with ruled and blank pages for readers to create their own stories, keep their own diaries, and record their favorites and least faves. Includes a bonus full-color comics section featuring the collected cartoons of Greg Heffley and his best friend, Rowley.

 

Includes

16 pages of full-color comics!

 

 “Move over, Harry Potter. . . . Theres a new set of titles dominating the bestseller list for kids chapter books, and theres nothing ‘fantasy about these.”—Andrea Yeats on NPRs All Things Considered

 

“Perfectly pitched wit and believably self-centered hero . . .”—The New York Times

 

“Charming and hilarious from the get-go. . . . [Kinney has] an uncanny eye for the depredations and triumphs of middle school life.” —The Boston Globe

 

“The writing is sharp, and the artwork, though deceptively simple, is both entertaining and expressive . . . adding comic punch to these funny-because-theyre-true scenes . . .” —Bookpage

 

“Perfect for someone about to go to middle school, perfect for parents to help ease their child into this new phase. . . . Kinney has done a wonderful service for preteens by talking about all those awful, embarrassing, and good moments.” —The San Diego Union Tribune

 

F&P level: T

Synopsis:

NOT your little sister's glittery fairy story!

Everyone knows rule #1 in the dragon world: Never, ever mess with a dragon's mama. So when Danny Dragonbreath's mom gets kidnapped by fairies, Danny, his best friend Wendell, and know-it-all Christiana hop the first bus to the Faerie realm to show those fairies who's boss. But these are not the sparkly Tinkerbell kind of fairies. These guys play dirty, and escaping fairyland with Danny's mom is no easy task, even for a sort-of-fire-breathing dragon.

The seventh book in this laugh-until-smoke-comes-out-of-your-nose series is perfect for Wimpy Kid, Bad Kitty, and Dork Diary fans everywhere.
