On Jeff Kinney's Blog, he describes the book as
"...really hard to describe. It's kind of a part comic book, part activity book, part blank journal. The hardcover book has 16 pages of full-color comics in the middle."And that is exactly how I would describe the book. I book talked the book in my class and showed them a bit of the book. They were very excited, until I told them I only had one copy and would have to use it as a SUPER DUPER prize. I guess that will keep them on their toes for a bit! ;)
More exciting, the book I received came with information on entering a Do-It-Yourself Comic Contest. Many of the students were very interested in this contest. I think there will be a lot of competition out there with this new fascination with comic books and even more after they practice their comic skills using the Do-It-Yourself version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
