Get ready for a whole new look into Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid! Introducing the newest Wimpy Kid author—Rowley Jefferson! Rowley’s best friend Greg Heffley has been chronicling his middle-school years in thirteen Diary of a Wimpy Kid journals . . . and counting. But it’s finally time for readers to hear directly from Rowley in a journal of his own. In Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid, Rowley writes about his experiences and agrees to play the role of biographer for Greg along the way. (After all, one day Greg will be rich and famous, and everyone will want to know his life’s story.) But Rowley is a poor choice for the job, and his “biography” of Greg is a hilarious mess. Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid: Rowley Jefferson’s Journal offers readers a new way to look at the Wimpy world—one fans won’t want to miss!

Today is the launch of Abrams Books Diary of a Wimpy Kid Uncover the Colour Campaign! Visit wimpykid.com and shake Greg Heffley’s crystal ball to find out more about the cover, title and colour of book 8.
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid book 8 has a Canadian release date of NOVEMBER 5th, 2013! A few weeks ago Abrams Books released an original image by Jeff Kinney (seen here), which featured Greg Heffley under an umbrella being bombarded by raining eight balls. The image is a subtle hint of what fans can expect in the new book.
"Never in my wildest dreams did I think that Greg Heffley's stories would be enjoyed by this many kids around the world," said Kinney in a statement. "I'm incredibly excited that ABRAMS is launching the newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book with an international release of this size."
The other books in the series include Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel. Jeff Kinney has also written and illustrated The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book and The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary.
First published in 2007, Diary of a Wimpy Kid has been widely praised for its ability to turn reluctant readers on to books. More than 85 million DWK books are in print in over 44 territories; three movies based on the series have grossed more than $250 million and The Wimpy Kid Island on poptropica.com, a virtual world for kids, remains one of the most visited on the site.

The 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!
