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

Home School Book Review, June 15, 2011 (view all comments by Home School Book Review)
This is not a book just to sit down and read through but an activity book or a journal. However, the very first page says, “Whatever you do, just make sure you don’t write down your ‘feelings’ in here. Because one thing’s for sure: This is NOT a diary.” There are all kinds of activities in which the readers can make lists, answer questions about various topics, make their own comics, draw pictures, and such like. Plus, the end contains 46 blank, lined pages with the instructions, “Use the rest of this book to keep a daily journal, write a novel, draw comic strips, or tell your life story.”

When The Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which tells the story of Greg Heffley, his family, and his friends, first came out, I heard about it but did not read it because it didn’t sound as if it would appeal to me. Later, I was sent a copy of one of the sequels (#5, The Ugly Truth) to review, and my reading of it confirmed my earlier opinion that this kind of book is just not my cup of tea. However, the books are immensely popular with many children, so youngsters who do like “The Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series might well enjoy the activities in this book. The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book was first published in 2008, but the updated edition is expanded with more than sixty new pages, and has 32 pages of full-color comics, including sixteen brand-new. It is designed to inspire creative expression and encourage reluctant readers.
