Millions of children in the UK are readers because of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and fans will not be disappointed
this autumn with the publication of the much anticipated Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway, the twelfth
book in the series, which will publish simultaneously with twenty other publishers worldwide. My children were sent a special sleepover kit from Puffin Books, as well as a copy of the new book, so they could stay up and read it the night before it came out!
2017 also marks a milestone moment for the phenomenally successful series, with the 10th anniversary of the
launch of the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid book. Bestselling author Jeff Kinney will mark the series’ anniversary
and the publication of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway with his third global tour, meeting and entertaining
fans around the world with media and events throughout November and December.
Diary of A Wimpy Kid: The Getaway
With this new adventure, Diary of A Wimpy Kid: The Getaway, readers won’t be able to stop laughing as they
join Greg and his family on a holiday trip to remember. To escape the stress of the holidays, the Heffleys
decide to get out of town and go to a resort instead of celebrating Christmas at home, but what’s billed as a
stress-free vacation becomes a holiday nightmare. Filled with Kinney’s trademark hilarity, accessibility, and
pure fun, this latest Wimpy Kid instalment is sure to delight fans once again.
My children loved receiving their special sleepover packs and were excited to stay up late to read Diary of A Wimpy Kid: The Getaway! My 7 year old managed about a third of the book before falling asleep. He loves the style of this series, they are perfect for him with the mixture of words and pictures. He can’t wait to finish the book when he gets home from school today.
Jeff Kinney’s work has been widely praised for its ability to turn even the most reluctant readers on to books.
The Wimpy Kid books are 50% comic strip, 50% novel and 100% hilarious. As a result of the impact and success
of these books, Jeff Kinney has been named one of Time magazine’s most influential people in the world.
