“The Wimpy Kid: Movie Diary” by Jeff Kinney

This book is different to the rest of the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series in that it is about how they made a movie out of the book.

The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary

There are still the cartoons and notebook style font of the other books but this is interspersed with stills from the film, and this is less a tale of Greg’s misfortunes but more the challenge of fleshing out a cartoon for a live action movie. The book gives an idea of how much effort film-makers put into their craft. The set designers for example aren’t just creating a realistic backdrop for the moviegoers but also for the actors to enable them to better get into their characters.

I haven’t seen the film (or films as they also made a sequel) but I would rate the book at 4 out of 5, an interesting and humorous read.

About jimholroyd365

Hi, my name is Jim, I am an Englishman living in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. I started this blog to share my interests, my photos and to make sense of my world. I take a lot of photographs of various subjects, some of which I intend to share here. I collect diecast cars and get the same thrill at 50 as I did when I was 8, when I find a car I'm searching for, Don't worry, I have a separate blog for this hobby. Please feel free to comment and ask questions on what I blog. I am quite new to this blogging, I was inspired by reading a book, which began as a blog of a London Ambulance Driver: "Blood, Sweat and Tea". I hope my blog will be entertaining and amusing, I did try stand up comedy in the UK and had seven gigs before I left to teach English in Georgia. I love reading and so the blog will include book reviews of books as I finish them.I don't know about which direction this blog will go, I am a great believer in serendipity...let the journey begin...
