Fans of the multi-million selling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series are in luck. The original Wimpy Kid, author Jeff Kinney is about to make his first ever trip to Australia.

The Wimpy Kid books are a big hit in my house, along with millions of other households across the world, and that has been proven by the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards the series has won. In 2009 Kinney was named one of TIME magazine’s most influential people in the world, and he was nominated for Children’s Choice Book Awards in 2009-2011.

The first Diary of a Wimpy Kid was released in 2007 and climbed to the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list.

And now Australian Wimpy Kids can have their chance to get up close to Kinney at these Author Talks with Book Signings.
