The perfect gift for Wimpy Kid fans - now you can read and listen to Hard Luck, book 8 in the award-winning, hilarious Wimpy Kid series!
Francesca Dow, m.d. of Penguin Children’s, said: “Millions of kids in the UK are readers because of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. And Jeff’s new book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, is the funniest yet. Alongside Jeff’s funniest tour ever, this is set to be another great milestone for this incredibly popular and original superbrand.”
Jeff Kinney is the second biggest selling writer of children’s fiction in the UK this year (behind David Walliams), and sales of his books totalled £2.9m from the beginning of the year until the end of August, according to Nielsen BookScan.
The eighth book in the series, Hard Luck, had a UK first printing of 800,000 copies, making it Penguin's biggest-ever first printing of a children's book.

Greg Heffley's on a losing streak.
His best friend, Rowley Jefferson, has ditched him, and finding new friends in middle school is proving to be a tough task. To change his fortunes, Greg decides to take a leap of faith and turn his decisions over to chance. Will a roll of the dice turn things around, or is Greg's life destined to be just another hard-luck story?
You can also discover Greg on the big screen in any one of the three Wimpy Kid Movie box office smashes. His original Diary of a Wimpy Kid was voted 'Best Children's Book of the Last 10 Years' by UK readers.
