Tens of millions of fans all over the world read this series.

The pressure’s really piling up on Greg Heffley. His mom thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his “creative side.”

As if that’s not scary enough, Halloween’s just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle.

When Greg discovers a bag of gummy worms, it sparks an idea. Can he get his mom off his back by making a movie ... And will he become rich and famous in the process? Or will doubling down on this plan just double Greg’s troubles?

Reviews

Introducing book 11 in this phenomenally successful series which kids from the ages of 8 to 12 can’t seem to get enough of, especially boys who love humour! In fact the series is so popular it’s one of the most successful of children’s series ever published in world history, having won handfuls of children’s choice book awards. As millions of children will tell you, the Wimpy Kids books are animated diaries of Greg, an ordinary school boy. Of course they are formulaic but it’s testament to the American author that he has his pulse on how children think and the kinds of experiences they have in their lives. Kinney has explored many aspects of childhood in his Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and doubtless he will find more to continue this world-popular series.
