Diary of a Wimpy Kid

One of the hottest books in the preteen reading range these days has been the series by Jeff Kinney about middle-schooler Greg Heffley and his trials and tribulations. Written in the form of a "diary" (but don't call it that around him!) with sketches and cartoons that illustrate the story, these books have been wildly popular with both boys and girls, and especially with boys who are not so enamored with reading. The first two books in the series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules are available now. The third book in the series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw, will be available in January. Let us know if you want to reserve a copy (503-284-1726), because they're likely to go fast. Also available now is Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Do-It-Yourself Book, which provides original material to prompt journal writing along with blank journal pages. Rumor has it that a movie is in the works as well, and that a nation-wide casting search for someone to play Greg is underway now.
