A new Diary of a Wimpy Kid Story that will have you rolling with laughter, from number one bestselling author Jeff Kinney!
Hi my name is Rowley Jefferson and this is my book. Now I have a diary just like my friend Greg...
Rowley's best friend Greg Heffley has chronicled his middle-school years in thirteen Diary of a Wimpy Kid journals. Now it's Rowley's turn to give his side of the story.
But Rowley has agreed to tell Greg's story along the way, too. (After all, Grey says one day he will be rich and famous and the world will need to know how he managed it).
But Rowley's stories about Greg might not be quite what his friend had in mind . . .
The opening of Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid was originally published as a World Book Day 2019 title - Diary of Greg Heffley's Best Friend.
*Don't miss Rowley Jefferson's Awesome Friendly Adventure - coming 7th April 2020 - an entirely new, awesome, friendly, truly fantastic fantasy quest from #1 international bestselling author Jeff Kinney!*

No fan of the Wimpy Kid series would argue that Greg Heffley's long-suffering sidekick, Rowley Jefferson, doesn't deserve a turn in the spotlight. And none will be surprised that as soon as Rowley claims it, Greg hijacks it for himself. What begins as Rowley's diary illustrated in Kinney's familiar stick-figure style quickly morphs into a biography of Greg, who insists that "there are gonna be a LOT of biographies about him one day," but he's giving Rowley the chance to write the first. What follows is a retelling of some indignities that Rowley has suffered at Greg's hands: Greg's manipulation of Rowley extends to every facet of their friendship, including cheating on a math test so thoroughly that he inadvertently copies Rowley's name onto his own paper. But Rowley remains an "awesome friendly kid" through and through when the friends create original comics, Rowley's superhero, Amazing Guy, blocks attacks with rainbows and wears padded gloves "so he doesn't hurt the bad guys too much." His superpower, like Rowley's, is kindness. This series spinoff first appeared in 2018 (at half its present length) as a promotion for Scholastic Book Clubs. The fuller version will please fans, many of whom have long maintained that Rowley deserves better. Ages 8 12.
