This week at the RBE Library we had a very exciting event that has become an annual celebration. We hosted our 3rd annual Wimpy Kid Launch Event! Every Fall when the new Wimpy Kid book comes out, we presale the book. Then, after the book is released I invite all the kids who preorder the book to come to the library during lunch.
I pass out the new books, we eat, talk, laugh and play Wimpy Kid games. This year was especially cool because we had a Webcast to watch of Jeff Kinney talking about what it was like to write and produce this book.
Since over 1 million copies of this book were purchased in the first week after its release, it is safe to say that this is a HUGE book release and a HUGE deal for those of us that are fans of the series!
For those of you that were interested at the Launch Party, HERE is the Event Kit where I got all the games from. It’s awesome being Wimpy!
