The outstanding children’s lit blog Literate Lives posted a video with author/illustrator Jeff Kinney. The first half is interview, the second half is presentation. In fact, Mr. Kinney turns the in-store presentation on its head with a game of Wimpy Kid Jeopardy. My favorite part? The whole thing is filmed right here in the Great Lakes State at Boarders bookstore in Ann Arbor, MI. I know that town! Click the play button below to head over to Literate Lives and watch. You might just find out the title for the next Wimpy Kid book.
