Diary of a Wimpy Kid(Internationl edition)遜咖日記
Boys don’t keep diaries—or do they?
The launch of an exciting and innovatively illustrated new series narrated by an unforgettable kid every family can relate to
It’s a new school year, and Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving. The hazards of growing up before you’re ready are uniquely revealed through words and drawings as Greg records them in his diary.
In book one of this debut series, Greg is happy to have Rowley, his sidekick, along for the ride. But when Rowley’s star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend’s newfound popularity to his own advantage, kicking off a chain of events that will test their friendship in hilarious fashion.
Author/illustrator Jeff Kinney recalls the growing pains of school life and introduces a new kind of hero who epitomizes the challenges of being a kid. As Greg says in his diary, “Just don’t expect me to be all ‘Dear Diary’ this and ‘Dear Diary’ that.” Luckily for us, what Greg Heffley says he won’t do and what he actually does are two very different things.
Since its launch in May 2004 on Funbrain.com, the Web version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid has been viewed by 20 million unique online readers. This year, it is averaging 70,000 readers a day.

Wee Sing for Baby
Price Stern 出版
School Library JournalPreSAnother in the popular Wee Sing series, this release contains 65 songs, rhymes, and action verses for babies and toddlers. As is a signature of Wee Sing, children are featured as the vocalists on nearly all the cuts. Most of the songs are less than a minute in length, and most are traditional songs and rhymes that are available in many other sources. This recording gathers them together, and seems well-suited to first time parents who have forgotten their Mother Goose. The children's chorus and child soloists are in fine voice. The musical accompaniment relying on synthesizers is too simple to be interesting. On a few cuts, and on several of the fine lullabies that close out the recording, adult voices are heard depicting mom or dad. Some of the songs have lyrics that may be a variant of what some parents know. for example, "Open, Shut Them" is now "Open Them, Shut Them." The accompanying booklet contains the music and lyrics to the songs, and the text of the rhymes. Engaging sketches of animals add child appeal to the booklet. Even though the musical accompaniment is tedious, the recording will circulate well at public libraries.Penny Peck, San Leandro Public Library, CA

Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3: The Last Straw(International edition)(遜咖日記3-改造葛瑞大作戰)
The highly anticipated third book in the critically acclaimed and bestselling series takes the art of being wimpy to a whole new level.
Let’s face it: Greg Heffley will never change his wimpy ways. Somebody just needs to explain that to Greg’s father. You see, Frank Heffley actually thinks he can get his son to toughen up, and he enlists Greg in organized sports and other “manly” endeavors. Of course, Greg is able to easily sidestep his father’s efforts to change him. But when Greg’s dad threatens to send him to military academy, Greg realizes he has to shape up . . . or get shipped out.
Greg and his family and friends, who make the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books a must-read for middle school readers, are back and at their best in this hilarious new installment of the series, which is sure to please current fans while attracting new ones.
The third book in this genre-busting series is certain to enlarge Kinney’s presence on the bestseller lists, where the previous titles have taken up residence for the past two years. Kinney’s spot-on humor and winning formula of deadpan text set against cartoons are back in full force. This time, Greg starts off on New Year’s Day (he resolves to “help other people improve,” telling his mother, “I think you should work on chewing your potato chips more quietly”) and ends with summer vacation. As he fends off his father’s attempts to make him more of a man (the threat of military school looms), Greg’s hapless adventures include handing out anonymous valentines expressing his true feelings (“Dear James, You smell”), attempting to impress his classmate Holly and single-handedly wrecking his soccer team’s perfect season. Kinney allows himself some insider humor as well, with Greg noting the “racket” children’s book authors have going. “All you have to do is make up a character with a snappy name, and then make sure the character learns a lesson at the end of the book.” Greg, self-centered as ever, may be the exception proving that rule. Ages 8–12. (Jan.)
