Jeff Kinney’s Inspiration for Diary of the Wimpy Kid
Kinney was inspired to write the series after his own experiences as a middle school student. He wanted to create a book that would be both entertaining and relatable to young readers. He also wanted to create a story that would encourage kids to read more.
The first book in the series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, was published in 2007 and quickly became a bestseller. It has since been adapted into three feature films and spawned eleven sequels. The series has sold over 200 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 50 languages.
