As if the release of Diary of a Wimpy Kid “The Ugly Truth” were not exciting enough, we have now gotten word about a new Diary of a Wimpy Kid tour. The book goes on sale November 9, and the tour will start that day in Austin, Texas. The tour will then head to Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville, and Birmingham that same week. Bookstores will be giving away up to 2000 tickets for fans to see Jeff Kinney speak. Other events planned include a Cheese Touch board game and a dunk tank.

Get more information at Publishers Weekly.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid hats are hard to find because 1) only a couple of styles were made, 2) they were made for a limited time, and 3) they are sold out in most places.

Amazon has had a couple in stock but they sell out quickly and are often through resellers.

Borders has a purple one but it is not available locally. If you are lucky, you can keep trying back at your local stores or Borders.com and they do come into stock every now and again.

If you are in a pinch and not looking for any particular hat, Retrofacts is selling some through their eBay store as well:

With the impending release of Diary of a Wimpy Kid 5: The Ugly Truth, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Ice Cream Truck will again be touring the country. Last year one truck visited 40 locations, and this year two trucks will visit even more (52 total).

The tour will begin on August 15 and end August 28 with stops from Florida to the Midwest to Canada. Although Jeff Kinney will not be present at the stops, it will still be a pretty awesome opportunity. The truck will be giving out purple treats at each location and Abrams will donate a children’s book to nonprofit organization First Book for each treat distributed. You get ice cream and someone in need gets a book! I’m particularly excited because one of the stops is only 10 minutes from where I live.

You can get the full details from Publishers Weekly and even see an agenda of where the Wimpy Kid Truck will be and on what days.

It’s official! The fifth installment of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is going to be titled “The Ugly Truth.” We do not yet know much about the plot except the tagline that we keep seeing–“This Fall…Everything Changes.” We also previously reported a bit of a teaser from the author: “I feel like everything in the series has been leading up to the fifth book, which is about change and the different ways Greg and his best friend, Rowley, deal with it,” said Jeff Kinney. “To me, this book is the linchpin in the series, and I’m excited to be writing it.”

You can pre-order diary of a Wimpy Kid 5 now, and it will be released on November 9.

Amulet Books, an imprint of ABRAMS, has issued a press release with some new information about Diary of a Wimpy Kid 5. The fifth book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series will go on sale Tuesday, November 9, 2010. We know that the cover will be purple, but we will not actually see it or the title of the book until July.

One little hint that we got about the book came from the author himself. “I feel like everything in the series has been leading up to the fifth book, which is about change and the different ways Greg and his best friend, Rowley, deal with it,” said Jeff Kinney. “To me, this book is the linchpin in the series, and I’m excited to be writing it.”

If you happen to be at BookExpo in New York City May 26-27, you’ll see a banner in the hallway for the book as well as giveaways of water bottles and bookmarks. Even more exciting, Jeff Kinney will be signing books at 11am on May 27.

We’ll be posting information as we get it. One thing we know for sure is “This Fall…Everything Changes.”

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”!

The shirts say things like “Cheese Touch,” “The Fart Police,” “Indoor Person,” “Don’t Be a Ploopy,” “Zoo-wee mama,” “Loded Diaper,” and “Stealthinator.” Here are just a couple:

Borders did release some official Diary of a Wimpy Kid Shirts on which you could write your own quote in a word bubble. However, these are not available on line and my local Borders was sold out. I was able to find some of them using a Wimpy Kid Shirt search on eBay.

I was also able to find a few other Diary of a Wimpy Kid Shirts that I have not seen anywhere else. They are officially licensed and are sold by Retrofacts.

Here are a few of the sales ending soon:

We’ve been getting a lot of emails from people asking “Where can I buy the Diary of a Wimpy Kid game?” The good news is that the game is now available!

The game is called the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Cheese Touch Game” and involves players moving around a board–obviously avoiding the cheese!
You can get it in a number of places but they do sell out from time to time. We’ll list them here as we find them. In addition, there are a couple of other Diary of a Wimpy Kid games that you might want to check out including Diary of a Wimpy Kid UNO, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Scrabble, and various puzzles.

Amazon (currently $19.99) (and they have the other games)

Walmart ($19.99)
