The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary by Jeff Kinney is to be released March 16, 2010
About the book:
Go behind the scenes with Jeff Kinney and the making of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie!
If you've ever wondered how a movie gets made, you're not alone. Author and illustrator Jeff Kinney didn't know either, but when his bestselling series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, was turned into a live-action movie by 20th Century Fox, he learned how a book gets adapted into a major motion picture.
Complete with photographs, script pages, storyboard sketches, costume designs, and original art by Jeff Kinney, The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary is the perfect companion to the bestselling series.
When I read in the Shelf Awareness newsletter this week that there will be a new Wimpy Kid book out in March AND a Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie out in April...I knew my son would be over the moon! I was right, he was so excited when I told him. He even told his friends at school about the book and movie and they "couldn't believe it",according to my son! He told me that most of his fifth grade classmates have read the series and are excited for more. My son has read and re-read all of the Wimpy Kid books several times. He was so excited that he lined them up on my nightstand and told me that I had to read them and write about them on my blog! How could a mom say no to that?! Well, I did read them all and have reviewed them all here. Personally, I'm a bit tired of the series as an adult, the humor is getting old. I have to say that these books are the most searched for reviews on my blog! I get searches daily (often 5-10 a day), I haven't looked at my google stats for awhile but it's funny to see what people are searching for. Many searches are for "free online book of diary of a wimpy kid" or "diary of a wimpy kid quiz".

The second book is: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick rules, you can read my review here.
