'The Long Haul' With A Wimpy Kid

Nov 25, 2014

  The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series has become a phenomena among children and parents. There are 150 million of the books in print in 45 different languages. On a recent Thursday at Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga Springs, NY, author Jeff Kinney was working a crowd of hundreds of kids - and their parents - signing books and making small talk.

In the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, The Long Haul Greg Heffley and his family hit the road for a vacation - and Kinney has been taking a road trip of his own to support the book.

Kinney kicked off his promotion tour on November 3rd in a huge orange tour bus, decorated with drawings of the wimpy kid and his family. Kinney has been off and on the road since then and has his last stop later today.
