Yes it is!

Selfie Sunday

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
By Jeff Kinney

One of a, soon-to-be, nine book series that took the kids' book world by storm! Written in diary form and in Greg's "handwriting", these books and easy and fun books that kids seem to get through quite easy. The one thing I love about this series is that boys LOVE it and anything that gets those boys to read can't be that bad. Jeff Kinney is a Maryland native who originally started the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books for adults. Kids picked up really quick on the smash hit and before you know it ~ there was a movie!! So if you haven't read Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney yet, then stop by and pick up a copy. You'll be back for the rest of the series real soon afterward! Happy reading!
