'Wimpy' is the new 'Cool'

Diary of a Wimpy Kid #3, The Last Straw is out!
The latest in the wildly popular series of books about a middle school 'wimp.'

Greg Heffley is a middle school student who 'writes' and 'illustrates' these wildly popular books about his life. I learned about the 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' series of books while helping out at the Harlan Elementary School Book Fair over the past two years. They were the first books to sell out, and we'd reorder more of them than any other book. Emily, Ethan and I even headed up to the Free Library of Philadelphia last year to see the author of the series - Jeff Kinney. It was really fun, Jeff is a cool dude. The books are perfect for boys and girls from around fourth grade up.

We just got the latest book in the series - 'The Last Straw' and it's available starting today at YoYo Joe's. We also have copies of the December release 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do It Yourself Book' in stock. For more information on the books, check out the new website - wimpykid.com
