Jeff Kinney in the Guardian

Jeff Kinney was recently featured in the Guardian.  His Diary of a Wimpy Kid books are wildly popular with the middle school set, and for good reason. They aren’t about exotic worlds, fantastical creatures, or heros who save the day.  Instead, they feature the trials, tribulations and daily angst of preadolescence. Classroom teachers and librarians alike can attest to the popularity of Kinney’s book and the important role they have played in the surge or pre-teen boys reading.
