A DIARY OF A WIMPY KID STORY that will have you rolling with laughter, from number one bestselling author Jeff Kinney! Hi my name is Rowley Jefferson and this is my book. Now I have a diary just like my friend Greg... Rowley's best friend Greg Heffley has chronicled his middle-school years in thirteen Diary of a Wimpy Kid journals. Now it's Rowley's turn to give his side of the story. But Rowley has agreed to tell Greg's story along the way, too. (After all, Greg says one day he will be rich and famous and the world will need to know how he managed it). But Rowley's stories about Greg might not be quite what his friend had in mind . . . Praise for Jeff Kinney: 'The books contain meaty themes to do with family and friendship [...] more please'. The Telegraph 'No-one does the straight to camera narrative style of the diary better than Kinney ... This is as authentic and funny as the original Wimpy Kid books and makes just as irresistible reading.' - Andrea Reece, LoveReading4Kids Reviewer 'Kinney is right up there with J K Rowling as one of the bestselling children's authors on the planet'- Independent 'The world has gone crazy for Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid' - Sun 'Hilarious' - Telegraph
