Meet the Author

Jeff Kinney

Jeff Kinney is an online game developer and designer, and a #1 New York Times bestselling author. In 2009, Jeff was named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. He spent his childhood in the Washington, D.C., area and moved to New England in 1995. Jeff lives in southern Massachusetts with his wife and their two sons.

Biography

All his life, Jeff Kinney wanted to be a cartoonist. As a student at the University of Maryland in the 1990s, he published his comic strip "Igdoof" in the college newspaper, but he soon discovered that succeeding in the real world as a syndicated cartoonist is no easy task. So, after school, he supported himself as a newspaper designer and computer programmer, while working out ideas for a children's book that combined cartoons with conventional storytelling.

Once he conceived the concept for Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Kinney devoted nearly six years to developing the storyline and artwork. Fashioned as a journal with appealing, expressive stick figure drawings on every page, Diary is narrated in the pitch-perfect (and hilariously deadpan) voice of a not-always-likeable but totally believable tweener named Greg Heffley. Poised to make the painful transition from elementary to middle school, Greg struggles with the usual preteen angst: bullies and cliques, annoying siblings and clueless parents, faithful friends and cute, unattainable girls.

Although Kinney never intended to publish his book online, when the opportunity arose to serialize Greg's adventures on Funbrain.com, he knew he'd found the perfect way to reach his target audience. In 2004, the comic strip began appearing in daily installments on the website. The feature was a huge hit, attracting thousands of hits a day. Moreover, the online version paved the way to Kinney's five-book deal with the publisher Harry N. Abrams.

Armed with fresh, new story lines, Kinney launched the print sequence in 2007. From the very first installment, entitled simply Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the series was a success -- especially with reluctant readers who found the diary-with-doodles format far more accessible than conventional books. Greg, with his hilarious antics, backfiring schemes, and totally unfiltered thoughts (his mom has agreed not to read what he writes!), has struck a responsive chord -- both with kids who identify with his growing pains and with grownups who vividly recall their own.

Good To Know

  • Jeff Kinney claims that he writes for kids because he believes the most interesting and funniest stories come from people's childhoods.

  • In an interview with familyeducation.com, Kinney was asked which he liked more: writing or drawing cartoons. He answered this way: " Both writing and drawing are a struggle for me. I am cursed with being a very slow illustrator, and this book requires at least 1,000 illustrations. So sometimes, the joy of illustrating is a bit diminished by the amount of time that illustrating takes. What I enjoy is seeing the words and illustrations come together on the page."

  • Kinney knew he'd made the grade when Diary of a Wimpy Kid was chosen to appear as a plot point on the popular Disney-produced preteen series Wizards of Waverly Place.

  • Kinney deliberately avoids putting pop culture references into his stories because he wants them to have a timeless feel. He hopes readers will be able to pick his books up 20 years from now and still be able to relate to themes.

      KIds Review - The Perfect Gift For Kids

      All I can say about this series is they are outstanding. I have read all of these books and from a kids standpoint, they are great. Easy to read, funny, can read a few pages or spend an hour our two and still keep up, totally awesome books. Getting the whole series as a GIFT would have to put a real smile on lots of kids faces. I already have them all; but, am getting this series for my best friend for Christmas! She doesn't have them. Tex

      Highly Recommended

      I never question when my 6 year old asks me to purchase books for her to read so when she asked for these books I was extremely happy and so was she. She has the books memorized already but continues to read them.

      Great Christmas gifts!!

      My granddaughters asked for these for Christmas and we got them as early Christmas presents and they absolutely loved them. Our younger granddaughter got the journal as they had another set that our older granddaughter got that "extra" book. If it is books they want, books they get, better than video games!!

      My grandson has wanted these for six months -- since he saw the movies. He is started to read better and he is getting these for Christmas. Very good quality binding. Age appropriate. Cute drawings.

      Gave this as a gift to my grandson and it was a terrific hit, right up there with all the electronic gadgets that we sometimes think are the "must haves".

      The Perfect Series for ANY Kid!!!

      This series is great for all children. Adults may even enjoy these books. They are hilarious and addictive. I found it difficult to put any of these books down. Readers who have not read this series honestly have no idea what they are missing. This series is a best-seller-and for a good reason! A must-read for any age! It is 100% kid appropriate, and the words used are easy to read. Some really little kids may not fully understand the jokes made, so I think it's best for ages 5-14. All around-great. Parents...this is a great series for your kids! Kids-read this series!!!
