Jeff Kinney

Born on 19 February, 1971 in Maryland, USA, Jeff Kinney was brushing up his artistic skills from a very early age. The first of his drawings that he can remember was of a turtle when he was just 3 years old. He started working on Greg Heffley and the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series in 1988 and it took 19 years for the first book to be published in 2007. His distinctive cartoons were originally published on Funbrain.com and were already wildly successful by the time the books went into print. Presented in cartoon diary format, the Wimpy Kid books follow Greg and his family as they embark on a number of misadventures and have won many awards, as well as introducing reluctant readers to the joys of books.

    Penguin presents the audio CD edition of Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney, read by Dan Russell. Let me get something straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary. This was Mom's idea, not mine. But if she thinks I'm going to write down my "feelings" in here or whatever, she's crazy.The only reason I agreed to do this at all is because I figure later on when I'm rich and famous, this book is gonna come in handy.But for now I'm stuck with a bunch of morons. Today is the first day of school, so I figured I might as well write in this book to pass the time.Just don't expect me to be all "Dear Diary" this and "Dear Diary" that.
