The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary: How Greg Heffley Went Hollywood
by Jeff Kinney
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Not just another title in the Wimpy canon but also a fun guide to the moviemaking industry. Readers will soak up the revealing details of costuming, special effects, casting and more. Although the focus of the narrative is on the moviemaking, Wimpy Kid cartoons provide the side commentary we've come to love. Color photos and stills from the movie also fill the pages.
this is the most awesome book ever.
First there was the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, said to be a realistic fiction novel, by Jeff Kinney, which appeared on FunBrain.com in 2004 and was released in hardcover on April 1, 2007. Next, there have been several sequels, including Rodrick Rules (2008), The Last Straw (2009), Dog Days (2009), The Ugly Truth (2010), the only one that I have read, and Cabin Fever (2011). The seventh, The Third Wheel, is scheduled for release on November 13, 2012. Then there was a Diary of a Wimpy Kid film that was released by 20th Century Fox on March 19, 2010. After that, there were two more movies, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, based on book two of the Wimpy Kid series in 2011, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days based on books three and four in 2012.
Now, there is a tie-in book, written by Kinney, called The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary. It was originally published in 2010 and included film stills, script pages, storyboards, preliminary concept drawings, some new illustrations, and also behind the scenes information to chronicle in a humorous way the making of the film. The latest edition gives the story of all three movies. It begins with some background information about the original book, explains how it was made into a film, and then tells about the two movie sequels. Though the books, which chronicle in diary form how Greg Heffley relates to his dad Frank Heffley, his mom Susan Heffley, his older brother Rodrick, his little brother Manny, his best friend Rowley Jefferson, other kids at school, and people in the neighborhood, have been highly praised and very popular, I must be honest and say that they do not hit my hot button at all. However, those who do like the Wimpy Kids books and movies will undoubtedly enjoy this companion to the series and find it interesting.
the main character is the movie
This is a book about the making of the movie of the book wipmy kid. It is written is clear and easy to understand language without managing to be patronising. It covers the complications of making a movie without making a meal out of it. Making the process easy to understand.
I understand that the book the film is based on is supposed to be funny however this one does not manage to translate into the humor, but concidering it is a easy to read book, coveing alot of ground wihile making it interesting it does allright

My opinion on this book would be good enough were you should read it. My only problem with this book is that it’s basically talking about the same thing over and over. I feel like the book only talks about how he started off. But the book is supposed to be about his whole life. My favorite thing about the book is where it talks about how they filmed the movie and what they were doing while filming. And funniest thing about the movie is when it says they filmed a movie about the boys in middle school while they missed their first days of middle. Also I like the books pictures were its shows the real persons personality. ( )
