Happy Book Birthday to Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

Wimpy Kid fans around the United States are visiting bookshops and libraries to get their hands on Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul. Readers are laughing, smiling, and rejoicing. 

I am beyond honored to welcome Jeff Kinney to Watch. Connect. Read. He dropped by to chat with me about a big orange bus, geocaching, Poptropica, reading, and school libraries. I wrote the words in orange, and he wrote the words in black. Thank you, Jeff! 

On November 4, 2014, I'll be on the road, in a big orange bus, meeting kids who (hopefully) like my new book!

The cover illustration for Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul took a lot of time to develop. It was hard squeezing everything in there! But I think every kid knows what it's like to feel like Greg does in the image.

You can help the Heffley’s find their lost luggage by finding their Geocache tags scattered throughout the country!

Did you know that Poptropica was launched in 2007, the same year the first Wimpy Kid book came out?

When I was in middle school I didn't make much of a splash. I was more an observer than a participant.

School libraries are important! I hate to see funds taken away from school libraries!

Reading is essential to enjoying life to its fullest!

Mr. Schu, you should have asked me about my mad karaoke skills!

Borrow Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
