Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

9781419711893-350x521

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.
