About Diary of a Wimpy Kid
  • Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a realistic fiction novel written by American author and cartoonist Jeff Kinney, the first book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and is followed by Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules. The book acts as a journal and follows the adventures of sixth grader Greg Heffley, the narrator of the book, who tells about his sixth grade year. On the way, he encounters big mean bullies, teenage goons, and his little troublemaking brother, Manny. The main problem that Greg faces is trying to get the girls to like him.[1] The book received many awards and honors and, according to author and illustrator Jeff Kinney, is the first of five books in the series. The third book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw, was released on January 13, 2009, and the fourth is coming out this fall. A movie of the series possibly soon be in production and will be distributed by 20th Century Fox in July , 2009
