In a nutshell: 150 million readers aren’t wrong Wimpy Kid Greg Heffley goes all existential in this the latest and as ever much-anticipated episode in the multi-million selling series. Is his life real, he wonders, or is he just the star in a secret TV series of his own life? Either way, he decides to act as if it’s the latter, even coining his own made-for-TV catchphrase, ‘Bite my Biscuit’! By the book’s final chapter, he’s got behind the camera himself and catapulted best friend Rowley to something like stardom! Kinney’s invention is as sharp as ever and this is full of scenes that will have children doubled-up with laughter. There’s a reason for the books’ phenomenal popularity with readers, and Double Down delivers another dose of irresistible reading.

Fans of Greg Heffley will also appreciate Liz Pichon’s Tom Gates books and Jonathan Meres’s The World of Norm as well as Stephan Pastis’s Timmy Failure. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Double Down by Jeff Kinney

Get ready, Book 11 in the phenomenally bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is coming! The pressure's really piling up on Greg Heffley. His mom thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his 'creative side'. As if that's not scary enough, Halloween's just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle. When Greg discovers a bag of gummy worms, it sparks an idea. Can he get his mom off his back by making a movie ...and will he become rich and famous in the process? Or will doubling down on this plan just double Greg's troubles?
