Jeff Kinney introduces Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul
Hi Red House readers,
I’m Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and I’m here to tell you about my new book, The Long Haul.
In The Long Haul, Gregg Heffley and his family leave the comforts of their home and head out on the open road.
This book’s got it all: marauding seagulls, a biting pig, two car accidents, a gnarly gas station bathroom, deep-fried butter on a stick, a foulest footwear contest, and a rival family for the Heffleys – the Beardos.
This book is really different from the others in the Wimpy Kid series. All five Heffleys are in almost every scene and a lot of the action takes place inside their over-stuffed minivan.
I’ve heard that the best way to write is to throw obstacles at your characters and then to keep piling on. Well, I’ve thrown everything I had at the Heffleys and by the end of the trip they’ll have a lot of digging out to do.
I had a lot of fun writing this book and I think it’s the best one in the series; I really hope you’ll agree!
The funniest books you’ll ever read.
