Diary of A Wimpy Kid (5 Books) BSY645

US$59.95

Kinney's popular Web comic, which began in 2004, makes its way to print as a laugh-out-loud "novel in cartoons," adapted from the series. Middle school student Greg Heffley takes readers through an academic year's worth of drama. Greg's mother forces him to keep a diary ("I know what it says on the cover, but when Mom went out to buy this thing I specifically told her to get one that didn't say 'diary' on it"), and in it he loosely recounts each day's events, interspersed with his comic illustrations. Kinney has a gift for believable preteen dialogue and narration (e.g., "Don't expect me to be all 'Dear Diary' this and 'Dear Diary' that"), and the illustrations serve as a hilarious counterpoint to Greg's often deadpan voice. The hero's utter obliviousness to his friends and family becomes a running joke. For instance, on Halloween, Greg and his best friend, Rowley, take refuge from some high school boys at Greg's grandmother's house; they taunt the bullies, who then T.P. her house. Greg's journal entry reads, "I do feel a little bad, because it looked like it was gonna take a long time to clean up. But on the bright side, Gramma is retired, so she probably didn't have anything planned for today anyway." Kinney ably skewers familiar aspects of junior high life, from dealing with the mysteries of what makes someone popular to the trauma of a "wrestling unit" in gym class. His print debut should keep readers in stitches, eagerly anticipating Greg's further adventures. Ages 8-13. Price is for each book. Please view more details on each title in Simplified Chinese characters. The Chinese Version Vol. 1-5 is available now.

《小屁孩日记》是一本漫画与涂鸦加上文字说明的另类日记。主人公格雷是一个念初中的半大小子。他善良、诚实、聪明、爱玩,满脑子的鬼点子。他的妈妈让他记日记,他除了松散地记述了有趣的或难忘的事情外,还画了许多漫画。在日记里,格雷记叙了他如何驾驭充满冒险的中学生活,如何巧妙逃脱学校歌唱比赛,最重要的是如何不让任何人发现他的秘密。他经常想捉弄人反被人捉弄;他常常想做好事却弄巧成拙;他屡屡身陷尴尬境遇竟逢“凶”化吉。他不是好孩子,也不是坏孩子,就只是普通的孩子;他有点自私,但重要关头也会挺身保护朋友。……总之,那些十几岁孩子常遇到的麻烦事他都毫无例外地遇上了:他的父母不让他打电子游戏,他的哥哥欺负他,他的弟弟总给他惹麻烦,而他学校的女生则认为他不过是浪费她们的时间。详情请参阅每本书的中文简介
