About Jeff Kinney and the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book Series
In 1998, Jeff Kinney came up with the book idea for Diary of a Wimpy Kid, a story about a middle-school weakling named Greg Heffley. Jeff worked on his book for almost eight years before showing it to a publisher in New York. In 2006, Jeff signed a multi-book deal with publisher Harry N. Abrams, Inc. to turn Diary of a Wimpy Kid into a print series. The first Diary of a Wimpy Kid book was published in 2007 and became an instant bestseller. There are now more than 200 million copies of the series in print worldwide. To date, the online version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid has more than 80 million visits and is typically read by more than 70,000 kids a day. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series has been a fixture on the USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. The book series has remained on the New York Times bestseller lists since the publication of the first book and the books are currently available in 76 editions in 64 languages.
