Overview

Greg Heffley is just your average American schoolboy, but he seems to have a habit of getting into the most awkward situations - and his highly dysfunctional family do not help matters! Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid series has proven very popular and managed to entice many reluctant readers since the release of the first book in 2007, winning a host of awards along the way too. This collection includes nine of the cartoon-format novels and a Do-It-Yourself Book so children can write in their very own Wimpy Kid journal. Laugh-out-loud funny, these books will appeal to boys and girls aged 7+.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Book One)

Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into a new year and a new school where undersize weaklings share the corridors with kids who are taller, meaner and already shaving.

Desperate to prove his new found maturity, which only going up a grade can bring, Greg is happy to have his not-quite-so-cool sidekick, Rowley, along for the ride. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend's popularity to his own advantage. Recorded in his diary with comic pictures and his very own words, this test of Greg and Rowley's friendship unfolds with hilarious results.

Roderick Rules (Book Two)

Whatever you do, don't ask Greg about his summer vacation because he definitely doesn't want to talk about it . . .

It's a brand-new year and a brand-new journal and Greg is keen to put the humiliating (and secret!) events of last summer firmly behind him.

The Last Straw (Book Three)
Whatever you do, don't ask Greg about his summer vacation because he definitely doesn't want to talk about it . . .

It's a brand-new year and a brand-new journal and Greg is keen to put the humiliating (and secret!) events of last summer firmly behind him.

But someone knows everything - someone whose job it is to most definitely not keep anything embarrassing of Greg's private - his big brother, Rodrick. How can Greg make it through this new school year with his not-quite-cool reputation intact?

Dog Days (Book Four)

The way I like to spend my summer holidays is in front of the TV, playing video games with the curtains closed and the light turned off.

Unfortunately, Mom's idea of the perfect summer holiday is different from mine.

This summer, a beach holiday isn't on the cards, and Greg's mom's vision of 'family togetherness' really doesn't sound a whole lot of fun.

But there's a brand-new addition to the Heffley family to contend with and it looks like Greg might be outnumbered. It could be a real dog of a summer . . .

 

The Ugly Truth (Book Five)

I'm in the market for a new best friend. The problem is, I invested all my time in Rowley, and I don't have anyone lined up to take his place.

Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it's cracked up to be?

Suddenly Greg is dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older.

And after a fight with his best friend Rowley, it looks like Greg is going to have to face the "ugly truth" all by himself . . .

 

Cabin Fever (Book Six)

Over the past few days we've been running low on food, and if the snow doesn't melt quick I don't know WHAT we're gonna do.

Greg is in big trouble. School property is damaged, and he is the prime suspect. But the crazy thing is, he's innocent! Or at least, sort of.

The authorities are closing in, but then a surprise blizzard hits and the Heffley family is trapped indoors.

Greg knows that when the snow melts he is going to have to face the music but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family?

 

The Third Wheel (Book Seven)

When you live in a house with four other people, some fool is always gonna come along and ruin things for you.

Love is in the air, but what does that mean for Greg Heffley?

A Valentine's Day dance at Greg's school has turned his world upside down.

As Greg scrambles to find a date, he's worried he'll be left out in the cold on the big night. His best friend, Rowley, doesn't have any prospects either but that's small consolation.

Then an unexpected twist gives Greg a partner for the dance and leaves Rowley the odd man out. But a lot can happen in one night, and in the end, you never know who's going to be lucky in love . . .

Hard Luck (Book Eight)

Mom's always saying that friends will come and go but family is forever. Well, if that's true, I could be in for a rough ride.

Greg Heffley's on a losing streak. His best friend, Rowley Jefferson, has ditched him, and finding new friends in middle school is proving to be a tough task.

To change his fortunes, Greg decides to take a leap of faith and turn his decisions over to chance.

Will a roll of the dice turn things around, or is Greg's life destined to be just another hard-luck story?

The Long Haul (Book Nine)

This time, the Heffleys are off on a road trip! The chances of survival are... quite small to be honest.

If I had to guess, I'd say 90% of everything we do as a family comes from ideas Mom gets from that magazine. And when I saw the latest issue I knew it was gonna get Mom's wheels turning.

When Greg's mom decides the family are going to have an 'authentic experience' this summer on a family road trip, Greg is less than excited.

All the Heffley's trapped in a minivan for miles and miles... it spells disaster.

And when Greg has to battle petrol-station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender and a runaway pig, it seems he was right to be worried.

Old School (Book Ten)

I really don't understand why Mom thinks we need to go BACKWARDS, anyway. From what I can tell, the old days weren't that much fun.

Life was better in the old days. Or was it?

That's the question Greg Heffley is asking as his town voluntarily unplugs and goes electronics-free.

But modern life has its conveniences, and Greg isn't cut out for an old-fashioned world.

With tension building inside and outside the Heffley home, will Greg find a way to survive? Or is going 'old school' just too hard for a kid like Greg?

Double Down (Book Eleven)

The pressure's really piling up on Greg Heffley. His mom thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his 'creative side'.

As if that's not scary enough, Halloween's just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle.

When Greg discovers a bag of gummy worms, it sparks an idea. Can he get his mom off his back by making a movie . . . and will he become rich and famous in the process? Or will doubling down on this plan just double Greg's troubles?

The Getaway (Book Twelve)

Greg Heffley and his family are getting out of town in the twelfth instalment of Jeff Kinney's bestselling series.

With the cold weather setting in and the stress of the Christmas holiday approaching, the Heffleys decide to escape to a tropical island resort for some much-needed rest and relaxation.

A few days in paradise should do wonders for Greg and his frazzled family.

But they soon discover that paradise isn't everything it's cracked up to be. Sun-poisoning, stomach troubles and venomous creatures all threaten to ruin the family's vacation.

Can their trip be saved, or will this island getaway end in disaster?
