Some may think it’s Movember, some NaNoWriMo, but really November is Wimpy Kid month. The new book comes out in Nov ember every year, and 2016 is no exception.
Double Down, #11 in the series out today. Kids born when the first Wimpy Kid book came out are now older than Greg Heffley!
As of last year, the Wimpy Kid series had sold some 150 million copies in print worldwide. Guessing it’ll sell some more.
And the cast of the new Wimpy Kid movie – Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul – has just been revealed in a trailer. The movie comes out in May of next year. There have been three previous movies, but everyone is growed up now. More info:
