Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3 The Last Straw is here!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3 The Last Straw by Jeff Kinney was released yesterday, January 13th-to the delight of the series' many fans! It may have seemed an eternity to diehard fans since the last book came out, but it was just last October that Diary of a Wimpy Kid the Do-It-Yourself Book was released, which encourages kids to write a journal of their own in a Wimpy kid format. For those who may be unfamiliar with the Wimpy Kid phenomenon, it's a hilarious series written in journal form with cartoon style illustrations that is extremely popular, particularly with middle schoolers. The series has a broad appeal to both boys & girls & has been instrumental in getting many reluctant readers to actually enjoy reading. Suggested reading age is about 8 to 13.
