About the Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Double Down
The pressureâ€™s really piling up on Greg Heffley. His mom thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his â€œcreative side.â€
As if thatâ€™s not scary enough, Halloweenâ€™s just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle.
When Greg discovers a bag of gummy worms, it sparks an idea. Can he get his mom off his back by making a movie . . . and will he become rich and famous in the process? Or will doubling down on this plan just double Gregâ€™s troubles?
About Jeff Kinney
Jeff Kinney attended the University of Maryland in the 1990s. There he had his first experience in creating a comic strip, called â€œIgdoofâ€ as part of the campus newspaper. This sparked his desire to be a newspaper cartoonist. However, he failed to publish his first syndication. Then in 1998, thatâ€™s the time he started writing about the Diary of a Wimpy Kid. After six years, he began publishing this in daily installments at Funbrain.com. Currently, the online version of the book has had 80 million visits.
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. In fact, about 180 million copies have now been printed and sold worldwide!
Today, Jeff is a game designer and cartoonist, apart from being the author of childrenâ€™s books. Three of the Wimpy Kid books (Diary of the Wimpy Kid, Dog Days, and Rodrick Rules) have been adapted into movies. Kinney is also the creator of the kid-friendly website Poptropica, an online role-playing educational website. In 2015, Kinney and his wife Julie opened an independent bookstore and cafe in Massachusetts.
