馫 Reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book 1) for kids ғ Author Jeff Kinney क 馫 Reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book 1) for kids ғ Author Jeff Kinney क Exclusive A QA with Jeff Kinney Question Given all the jobs that you have game designer, fatherhood, Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie work, etc., do you have a certain time that you set aside to write Kinney I still treat writing like a hobby, working mostly at night and sometimes on weekends But when a deadline looms my hobby time gets extended into the wee hours of the night It s not uncommon for me to work until 4 00 a.m., and I m usually back at work by 9 00 a.m Q Did you get to choose which character you would play in the Wimpy Kid films Mr Hills What do you enjoy most about working on the movies Kinney I never any real desire to appear in the Wimpy Kid films, but one day my wife encouraged me to be an extra in one of the crowd scenes So I walked onto the set, ready to ask the assistant director to put me somewhere in the back It happened that right at that moment the director was looking for someone to play the role of Mr Hills, Holly Hills s father What I didn t realize was that I d be front and center in the church scene, and in the new movie, I m even prominent I m incredibly self conscious so appearing on camera was a real stretch for me. Q In 2009 Time magazine named you as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World whats the first thing you did after you found out Kinney I thought it was a practical joke, so I tried to track down the source of the joke I eventually reached a voicemail of a reporter who said they worked for Time, and at that point I thought it was just a well planned practical joke It took me a while to realize it was for real It was a big honor, but I don t take it very seriously I m the fourth most influential person in my own house.Q Would you ever consider making Wimpy Kid into a newspaper comic strip or creating another one Do you have any favorite comic strips that you currently read Kinney I ve considered it I set out to become a newspaper cartoonist but failed to break in But I like the freedom books give me, so it would be tough to cram my ideas into three or four panels.Q What is or could be you motto in life Kinney I was inspired to write by a Benjamin Franklin quote Well done is better than well said But I always encourage kids to create something great, because the tools to create something original and find an audience are available to them like never before. Q What was your favorite year in school, and why Kinney Fifth grade was my favorite year I had a great teacher, Mrs Norton, who encouraged me to be funny and challenged me to be a better artist and joke teller than I was I liked it that she didn t coddle me.Q Kids now ask for a book that is like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and with this series youve created a whole new subset of books for young readers how does it feel to be the person behind such massive book enjoyment, reaching reluctant readers, and spawning any number of titles that aspire to be the next Wimpy Kid Kinney I m happy that kids are reading I think graphical books reach kids who might otherwise see books as work Books should be fun Starred Review 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 Apr Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
