Get ready For Some Unruly Fun When 
DIARY OF A WIMPY KID 
is released onto Blu-Ray and DVD JUNE 21st


Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Top Ten Fun Books to Read this Summer

Greg Heffley is about to discover that there is something worse than middle school – his own family! Based on the 2011 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice™ Award for Best Book Series, the original film cast returns in DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: RODRICK RULES, available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 21st.

For Greg and Roderick’s mother, Susan (Rachael Harris, The Hangover), having a full house can take it’s toll, especially with these two. This flick takes sibling rivalry to entirely new levels as big brother and little brother wrestle through growing pains. Just back from summer vacation, Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon, National Treasure: Book of Secrets) and his friend Rowley (Robert Capron, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) enter the next grade as undersized weaklings in their school.

A bully favorite, Greg tries not to get noticed by anyone except the pretty new girl, Holly Hills (Peyton List, 27 Dresses). And at home, Greg is still at war with his older brother, Rodrick (Devon Bostick, “Degrassi”), until their mom Susan instigates a ‘Mom Bucks’ program so Greg and Rodrick can earn play money by doing chores and—gasp!—being nice to each other. Calamity ensues when their parents return from vacation and dad Frank (Steve Zahn, A Perfect Getaway) finds evidence that Rodrick secretly threw a houseparty with his band, Löded Diper. As they struggle with school and compete for ‘Mom Bucks,’ the brothers discover that avoiding trouble is easier if they unite—and their once-twisted partnership grows into a hilariously playful and sometimes mischievous friendship.

On days when it gets too hot to go outside and be active this summer, why not take the chance to catch up on reading? Create a list of essential reads for the summer and get to it! Here is our top ten list of books that make for fun reading whatever age you are – which of course will include our number one choice diary of a Wimpy kid: Roderick Rules

Kick off the First Day of Summer and win a DVD copy of DIARY OF a WIMPY KID: RODRICK RULES

Available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 21st


DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: RODRICK RULES will be available on single-disc DVD, 2-disc DVD, and 3-disc Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy and includes the crazy adventures Greg and his friends has over the summer with hilarious all-new “My Summer Vacation” shorts not seen in theaters. It is available in the U.S. and Canada.

My thoughts:  
We are big fans of the Wimpy Kid series in our house.  The books are read over and over.  They make for great summer time reading because they are fun and light reading.  If you have a child in early elementary school who doesn't like to read, try challenging them to read the book so you can watch the movie and discuss the differences and similarities.  We went to see this second edition of the series in the theater and I really enjoy them.  They are funny, even for my 3 year old and myself. But the best part in the conversation in the car afterwards when we compare and contrast the book and the movie.  Unlike many books turned movie I wouldn't say one is better than the other, there are just small changes to make things flow in the movie.
