About the Author:

From Booklist:

If you're a fan of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series—and, statistically speaking, you probably are or know someone who is—you're aware that the live-action film based on the illustrated middle-school travails of Everyboy Greg Heffley has arrived. Movie tie-in books tend to be either mass-market novelizations or coffee-table affairs, both of which have found audiences. This title, in contrast, is the same size, binding, and font as the original novels and gives a very down-to-earth and enthusiastic explanation of how the film adaptation of Wimpy Kid came to the screen. Kinney understands tweens' life traumas, as well as their fascination with moviemaking, and he imparts its secrets without getting too technical or gossipy. In a friendly, conversational tone, he follows the main character (Greg, of course) and the young star who portrays him on the screen, Zachary Gordon, through all stages of the filming process, from green light to red carpet. Along the way, Kinney covers Hollywood pitchmen, script creation, director selection, casting (budding actors will be especially interested in the process), location scouting, the creation of props (Who knew this much work went into a fake piece of moldy cheese?) and special effects, costume design, stunt performances, and more. More than 200 behind-the-scenes color photos are included in a title that's sure to delight series devotees and film buffs alike. Grades 4-8. --Andrew Medlar
