The publisher announced that they are printing 5 million copies to start out – that’s a bunch. The author, Jeff Kinney, says:
“To me, the fifth book is the linchpin of the series….Since Greg Heffley is a cartoon character but also a literary character, I’ve always wondered if he should grow up or stay in a state of arrested development forever. This book answers that question once and for all.” (From Publisher’s Weekly)
So what do you think? Will he have Greg grow up are stay the same age? I also read that the second Diary of a Wimpy Kid movied, based on Rodrick Rules, will come out March 25, 2011. That’s not too far away!
