American author-illustrator Jeff Kinney has launched the tenth book of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.Titled, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School, the book is yet another personal journal of Greg Heffley, the main protagonist of the series.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid series traces the life and struggles of Greg, a young boy who inadvertently lands into trouble all the time.The latest addition to the series, will be about how Greg, a middle-school weakling goes “old school” as his entire town goes electronics-free.
How the boy recovers from the massive challenge of living a life sans electronics and ultimately goes back to his roots lies at the crux of the book.
Through his latest book Kinney has tried to raise the much-debated question of whether life was better in the old days or is far better now?
As reported by PTI, the book ” follows Heffley as he goes on a weeklong field trip to a farm and deals with a generation gap between the kids and their chaperones. With tension building inside and outside the Heffley home, Greg looks for a way to survive. ”
Published by Puffin Books, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Old School has a dramatic and basic black cover the reason for which, according to Kinney is that he, ” wanted to bring things back to basics. And nothing says ‘Old School’ for a cartoonist more than black, the colour of ink ”
The book will hit the bookstores in more than 90 countries, including India on November 3.
