Wimpy Kid Wins
5 Mar 2012
Diary of a Wimpy Kid has been named Best Book of the Last Ten Years at the 2012 Blue Peter Book Awards. A staggering 15,000 children voted in the poll which saw hapless hero Greg triumph over Harry Potter, Alex Rider and Horrid Henry.
Author Jeff Kinney said “I’m so grateful to all of the Wimpy Kid fans in the UK who have supported my books right from the beginning. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a lot of them over the past year and I can’t wait to come back to say ‘thank you’ for this great honour in person.”
