July 2009

It’s official! The 4th Diary of a Wimpy Kid series book name and cover have been released. “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days” will be released on October 12, 2009. Here’s a shot of the cover:

The description from Barnes & Noble says that the book is about summer vacation and Greg’s view of summer vacation (playing video games) versus that of his mom (outdoors and “family togetherness”).

You can pre-order Dog Days from a number of places to save on the cover price. Here’s a direct link to the page on Barnes & Noble.

I was also able to find a few other Diary of a Wimpy Kid Shirts that I have not seen anywhere else. You can find them on eBay.

Original Post: My daughter was asking me the other day to buy her a Diary of a Wimpy Kid shirt. Seemed like a good suggestion because she loved the books. But after searching online for over an hour, I couldn’t find one. So I decided that if we want a Wimpy Kid shirt, we’ll have to make one!

Here are two of my favorite sites for making shirts: Zazzle and CafePress. Both allow you to upload graphics or just use text. You can customize the type of shirt, size, color, etc.

So I was thinking…we need to come up with some good Diary of a Wimpy Kid quotes to use to make our own shirts. I’ve come up with a couple but could use your help! Leave a comment with quotes from any of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book that you think would be great to make into a shirt.

My quotes:

“They made Rowley _ _ _ the Cheese.”

“It’s is a JOURNAL, not a diary”

“I am a Wimpy Kid”

The best shirts from books tend to be the ones that have some kind of quote or reference that you only get if you have read the book. It makes it fun to wear them and see who else “gets it.”
