Did you know that April is Wimpy Kid Month at Books-A-Million. Get all 8 of the current Diary of a Wimpy Kid books PLUS pre-order Diary of a Wimpy Kid 9.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid 9 will ship from them on November 11, 2014. From their description:

Greg Heffley and his family hit the road in author-illustrator Jeff Kinney’s latest installment of the phenomenal bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.

Check out for more information.


Jeff Kinney is releasing a revised and expanded edition of The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book. The book has 16 more pages of full-color comics (for a total of 32 pages of comics) and 32 more interactive pages. The interactive pages ask kids things like “What was the best dream you ever had?” and “What was the worst thing you ever ate?”

The interactive journal is a great supplement to the book series because it helps kids express themselves and practice writing in a fun way that mirrors the way that Greg writes in the Wimpy Kid books. It will also make a nice keepsake to look back on when the child is older.

You can pre-order The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book from Amazon for $9.84 and it is eligible for free Super Saver Shipping.


Diary of a Wimpy Kid 5

April 8, 2010

Great news for Diary of a Wimpy Kid fans. Diary of a Wimpy Kid 5 (as of yet untitled) is set to be released on November 9, 2010. All that we have heard so far is that it is about Greg and Rowley’s friendship. Of course, that could mean so many things. One thing is for sure–you need to pre-order your copy of Diary of a Wimpy Kid 5 so that you will be one of the first to get it!

Edited: We’ve seen a new tagline for the book now “This Fall….Everything Changes”!


In anticipation of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie coming in April, a new Wimpy Kid book is being released. This one is actually a “diary” of the making of the Wimpy Kid Movie. It’s hardcover and over 200 pages.

The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary will take you through the process of turning a hit book series into a movie. The book will contain “photographs, script pages, storyboard sketches, costume designs, and original art by Jeff Kinney.”

Pre-order the Wimpy Kid Movie Diary from Amazon now for a March 16 release. It’s eligible for Free Super Saver Shipping.


We’ve been checking all of the online bookstores for the best deal on Diary of a Wimpy Kid 4: Dog Days. So far, the best deal that we have found is from Amazon. They are charging $7.67 if you preorder it. If you are ordering other books, it is eligible for Free Super Saver Shipping if you order $25 or more.

The other option would be to pre-order it from Borders. It’s $10.46 but you can have it shipped to your local store and not have to pay any shipping charges.

My daughter has already been saving up a dollar at a time to put away enough to get her copy. She just got Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3 from Scholastic last month and is now caught up on the series. I have a feeling that this book is going to be hard to get if we don’t pre-order it!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid 4: Dog Days is due to be released October 12.
