To date, as many, many of us know, not least those of us with kids, there have been fifteen volumes of Greg Heffley’s Diary… The Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The series has been instrumental in encouraging an entire generation of reluctant readers to get stuck into books, it has inspired a slew of imitators, and it has lent itself to screen adaptations. As middle-grade books go, the DOAWK series has been an unmatched phenomenon.
However, Greg is not the only person involved in his typically madcap adventures, and now it is time once again to hear more from his faithful biographer, Rowley Jefferson.
Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Spooky Stories
The newest addition to the Wimpy Kid book family is all about things that go bump in the night… because every self-respecting chronicler of life needs some scary stories under their belt.
But fear not (or fear do, because that’s sort of the point) because Rowley’s nighttime tales are just as likely to leave you laughing as hiding under the covers.
We all know that Rowley Jefferson has quite the imagination. Who better to lead you trembling into the world of vampires, ghosts and zombies? We all also know that Rowley has a knack for making things hilarious when they shouldn’t be. Thanks to good ol’ Rowley’s incorrigible comic chops, tales of bloodsuckers, undead shamblers, ghoulish haunters and other assorted spookers have never been so rib-tickling! There’s even a one-eyed wizard and a new… um, friend, named Garg.
Grab your flashlight and take a plunge into Rowley’s repertoire of hilariously hair-raising hauntings.
And don’t miss Rowley Jefferson’s first two awesome friendly books, Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid: Rowley Jefferson’s Journal and Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Adventure!
Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid: Rowley Jefferson’s Journal
Jeff Kinney brings us a brand new and absolutely unique addition to the Wimpy Kid world! There have thus far been 15 instalments of Greg Heffley’s diary, covering his numerous, madcap misadventures throughout his middle school career. Now we can all hear straight from Greg’s best friend Rowley, who chronicles his own scholastic experiences while acting as Greg’s biographer along the way. When Greg is rich and famous one day, everyone will want to know the full story, after all. The thing is, Rowley is not exactly the best person to fulfil this role. Frankly, his biography is a hysterical mess.
Rowley Jefferson’s Journal offers a hilarious new perspective on the Wimpy Kid world and provides fresh insights into our most beloved characters as well as the chance to see the stories through different (possibly less wimpy) eyes!
Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Adventure
It’s time for a brand new, dragon-packed, peril-padded, barbarian-bursting, warlock-filled fantastical adventure from the mind of awesome, friendly Rowley Jefferson.
This is a Wimpy Kid story like no other. Whatever quests and missions our kid-duo has already embarked upon, none of them has been quite this magical.
Accompanied by his best friend, Garg the Barbarian, Rowley must leave the relative comfort of his little village in an epic quest to save his mom from the infamous White Warlock.
Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Adventure is right up there with the very best instalments in the DOAWK series, and delivers just as many oodles of zany illustrations, creative imaginings and quirky writing as any you’ve read so far.
