The long wait is finally over! Jeff Kinney's much anticipated ninth Diary of a Wimpy Kid book The Long Haul is now available in bookstores across Canada.

About the book

A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you’re the Heffleys. The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig—not exactly Greg Heffley’s idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure—and this is one the Heffleys won’t soon forget.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth – Today's the Day!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly TruthThe latest installment of Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series has just hit stores, and we couldn’t be more excited. Rumour has it that our favourite Wimpy Kid, Greg Heffley is about to face his biggest challenge yet as he deals with the realities of growing up. From the pressures of boy-girl parties and increased responsibilities, to all of those awkward changes that come with getting older, Greg is about to come face to face with the ‘ugly truth’ - all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Is getting older really all it’s cracked up to be?  Will he make it through on his own?

In anticipation of the big event, author Jeff Kinney has a special message for Canadian booksellers and for all of his fans. Check it out below, and pick up a copy of The Ugly Truth yourself!
