Fun Pick: The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book
by Jeff Kinney
224 pages (illus. + color pages)
Due in stores May 10, 2011
Hilarious, creative, and visionary, Jeff Kinney has done it again! He will have the hit of the summer! Teen and tween boys (and girls) are going to want their own copy of this unique book. Greg Heffley (the wimpy kid) warns them, "don't write down your 'feelings' in here. Because one thing's for sure: This is NOT a diary."
Wannabe writers, cartoonists, graphic novelists, and artists will show their talents on these pages. Kids can write cartoons, fill in the characters' voice bubbles, answer all kinds of interesting questions like: "Have you ever peed in a swimming pool?" and "Does it get on youur nerves when people skip?" Kids can fill in pages planning their dream home of the future, what they think their future life will be like and what will be the annoying catchphrase in the future.
With Kinney's insightful and hilarious art, this Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a true winner! The book has 32 pages of full color cartoons and lined pages where kids can tell their own story. Great fun!
Highly, highly recommmended grades 4-up and anyone who likes art, drawing, doodling, and humor. Many adults I know would benefit from this book. Lighten up, already!
