Jeff Kinney comments on his Best Children’s Book of the Last 10 Years win as voted by Blue Peter viewers : ‘I'm thrilled and honestly stunned that kids in the UK voted Diary of a Wimpy Kid as the best children's book of the past ten years. When I saw the terrific books on the Blue Peter shortlist, I thought mine didn't stand a chance. I'm so grateful to all of the Wimpy Kid fans in the UK who have supported my books right from the beginning. I've had the pleasure of meeting a lot of them over the past year and I can't wait to come back to say 'thank you' for this great honour in person!’

Diary of A Wimpy Kid Synopsis

Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into a new year and a new school where undersize weaklings share the corridors with kids who are taller, meaner and already shaving. Desperate to prove his new found maturity, which only going up a grade can bring, Greg is happy to have his not-quite-so-cool sidekick, Rowley, along for the ride. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend's popularity to his own advantage. Recorded in his diary with comic pictures and his very own words, this test of Greg and Rowley's friendship unfolds with hilarious results.

If they like Wimpy Kid they'll love Dork Diaries.

Diary of A Wimpy Kid Press Reviews

Katy Guest, literary editor for The Independent on Sunday: "It's rude, it's funny and it will chime with every 11-year-old who's ever started a new school."
