Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School

Jeff Kinney

'Great book series entirely! My son who would never read any books for fun... tore through this book in a matter of days and we had to pry it from his hands to get him to eat and sleep! This book series has opened his eyes to the joy of reading ... Thanks to the author for creating books that inspire young minds!' Guardiananangel

With tension building inside and outside the Heffley home, will Greg find a way to survive? Or is going 'old school' just too hard for a kid like Greg?

Jeff Kinney (and others)

Book 11 in the phenomenally bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is out now!

The pressure's really piling up on Greg Heffley. His mom thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his 'creative side'.

As if that's not scary enough, Halloween's just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle.

When Greg discovers a bag of gummy worms, it sparks an idea. Can he get his mom off his back by making a movie . . . and will he become rich and famous in the process? Or will doubling down on this plan just double Greg's troubles?

Commentarii de Inepto Puero (Diary of a Wimpy Kid Latin edition)

Jeff Kinney

'Let me get something straight: This is a JOURNAL, not a diary. This was Mom's idea, not mine. But if she thinks I'm going to write down my feelings in here or whatever, she's crazy. The only reason I agreed to do this at all is because I figure later on when I'm rich and famous, this book is gonna come in handy. But for now I'm stuck in middle school with a bunch of morons.'

In the tradition of Harrius Potter and Hobbitus Ille, here is a global first: Jeff Kinney's mega-selling Diary of a Wimpy Kid newly translated into Latin.

Learning Latin has never been so much fun!

The Long Haul (Diary of a Wimpy Kid book 9)

Jeff Kinney

'Diary of a wimpy kid is an amazing book; you can't get enough of it! I am a huge fan of this book series by Jeff Kinney... When I saw this one coming out, I knew I just had to buy it.' A ten year old fan of Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Jeff Kinney has brought Greg Heffley back for the ninth instalment of his bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.

This time, the Heffleys are off on a road trip! The chances of survival are... quite small to be honest.

If I had to guess, I'd say 90% of everything we do as a family comes from ideas Mom gets from that magazine. And when I saw the latest issue I knew it was gonna get Mom's wheels turning.

When Greg's mom decides the family are going to have an 'authentic experience' this summer on a family road trip, Greg is less than excited.

All the Heffley's trapped in a minivan for miles and miles... it spells disaster.

And when Greg has to battle petrol-station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender and a runaway pig, it seems he was right to be worried.

This is one adventure the Heffleys won't forget!

Reluctant and avid readers of 7+ can't get enough of Greg and the disasters that follow him around!

'My daughter loves the Diary of the Wimpy Kid books and this one was no exception. She read it within a day, which I think says it all.' Chantalle Coombes
