Zoo-Wee Mama! Bring The Kids To Meet The Author Of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid

Have fun with trademark Wimpy Kid humour, trivia, cartooning, and “snowball fights.” Plus get your book signed and photo taken with author Jeff Kinney.

International bestselling author, Jeff Kinney visits South Africa for the first time to promote his new book in the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. The interactive author experience, hosted by Kinney, takes place at The Bay Hotel in Camps Bay on Wednesday 6 March and Thursday 7 March 2019.


DIARY OF A WIMPY KID
Jeff Kinney is well known for his fictional series of books, Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The books are the journals of the main character, Greg Heffley. In the style of a teen's diary, handwritten notes and drawings of Greg's daily adventures fill the books.

JEFF KINNEY’S NEW BOOK IN THE SERIES: THE MELTDOWN
The Meltdown is the latest addition to the series, released near the end of 2018. What happens when snow shuts down Greg Heffley's middle school? The school and his neighbourhood transform into a wintry battlefield. Rival groups fight over territory, build snow forts, and have snowball fights, and Greg along with his trusty best friend, Rowley Jefferson find themselves in the crosshairs.

Greg and Rowley fight for survival as they manoeuvre around alliances, betrayals, and warring gangs in a neighbourhood meltdown. What will happen when the snow clears?
