The Diary of Wimpy Kid series of books, by best-selling author Jeff Kinney, charts the highs and lows of our middle school hero, Greg, as he stumbles and fumbles from childhood to teenhood via school-hood. Sometimes helped by his friends and family, often not helped by himself!

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.

Readers love The Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series. The USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal, and # 1 New York Times bestsellers:

'In the publishing world, Kinney is a rock star.' NPR's 'Backseat Book Club'

'Diary of a Wimpy Kid is bent on world domination.' Time magazine

'One of the most successful children's series ever published.' Washington Post
