I haven't done a Tween Tuesday post in quite some time, but was inspired to do so today after receiving a copy of the soon-to-be-released The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book in the mail from Amulet. This journal is an update from a previous release, but has (says the press release) "more than 60 new pages" and "includes 32 pages of full-color comics." The book is filled with prompts including "Unfinished Comics," "Your Desert Island Picks" and "Which Would You Rather Do?" (ex. Wear the same Halloween costume every year OR Wear the same pair of socks for a week - I choose Halloween costume!). The pages that gave me the biggest laugh were Rodrick's Activity Pages which featured things like an impossible to solve (literally) maze and questions like, "Answer this question yes or no only: Q: Are you embarrassed that you popped in your diaper today?*" Such a gem!
Anyhoot, going through the journal (NOT diary) was so much fun that I had to keep from filling it out myself so that I could save it as a prize for a student. Highly recommended for the Wimpy Kid crew.
Oh! Oh! Oh! And there's a contest! It's The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Comics Contest. One lucky (artistically and humorously talented) winner will get a signed copy of the book, $500 for him or herself and $1,000 to the library of the winner's choice. Sweet.

*Rodrick reminds me so much of my older brother that it is scary.
