A New View

The narrator of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books is goofball Greg Heffley. But the new book in the series has a different point of view. In Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid, Rowley Jefferson tells the story. He is Greg’s best friend. Rowley sets out to write about Greg. But the book turns out to be mainly about himself.

Author JEFF KINNEY says Rowley is his favorite character. “There’s something very joyful and pure about Rowley,” Kinney told TFK. “Rowley is the opposite of Greg in just about every way.” The book is in stores now.
