Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is so epic, it’s getting its own month. No joke—publisher Abrams/Amulet has declared April to be Diary of a Wimpy Kid Month. The month will lead up to the cover and title reveal of the ninth book in the series on April 28, which will hit bookstores this November.
