New Release: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

Release Date: October 12, 2009

Tweens and adults will delight in the fourth installment of Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Middle Schooler Greg Heffley has planned the perfect summer vacation: playing video games all day long, with the curtains closed. What could be better? Unfortunately, his mom has other ideas. Will her plans of outdoor activities (gasp!) and family bonding ruin Greg’s ultimate vacation? Readers will have to pick up the new book to find who wins this battle of the wills.

Kinney spent years working on the Diary of a Wimpy Kid concept before it made its debut as a comic strip on Funbrain.com in 2004. His unique narrative voice and humorous stick figure drawings immediately struck a chord with tweens and their parents. The popularity of the on-line story soon landed Kinney a five-book deal, with each of his previous installments topping the best sellers list. Anticipation has been high for the arrival of Dog Days, and early critic reviews assure that the new book will not disappoint.

    My 11 year-old loves the Wimpy series. I’ll have to rush him to the library to check it out. Thanks for posting the review Holly.
