Paperback Deals of the Day


Wimpy Kid is the new kid on the block. Let me rephrase that: He has been the most popular kid on the block for some years now. He has won over millions of hearts and this series has sold more than 20 million copies. In this latest installment, Greg enters middle school and life is not going to be the same. Rowley, his best friend is no longer at his side and he just
cannot seem to make new friends. This is the classic dilemma of most children or teens and Kinney does a fantastic job of connecting with kids and their lives through this series. We have all gone through this phase. Kinney brings it to life with a lot of humour and some lovable characters.
