Happy Wimpy Kid Day!

9 Nov

It has finally arrived! The day everyone has been waiting for…when the newest diary of a certain wimpy kid comes in that Scholastic book box and kids can hold the books in their hands and go off and read. These books have made readers out of thousands and thousands of kids and we’re thrilled that we could be a part of that excitement. Scholastic Book Clubs has sent out over 300,000 shipments containing close to 800,000 copies of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth. We needed 34 truck trailers to ensure that we could ship the books to classrooms across America—and that is just for those who pre-ordered the books. Check out our crew in our warehouse in Jefferson City packing the books! They even had a “packathon” for it.


If you are interested in joining Wimpy Kid mania, you can find the new book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth in November’s Arrow! Also, be sure to check out Scholastic’s Jeff Kinney author page which has awesome interviews and more!
