Wimpy Kid team answered our questions


You have caught us during a particularly hectic time!  Jeff is up against his deadline for writing the next book AND he is trying to open his very own bookstore!  In the interest of not keeping you waiting for quite a long time, I’ve answered these questions on Jeff’s behalf.

Jeff began writing books because he didn’t have any luck getting his cartoons syndicated in a newspaper!  So, he snuck his cartoons into books and found success with this method.

He got the idea for WK when he was in his late twenties, shortly after he began writing in a journal of his own.

Jeff likes to write for this age group because he thinks it’s ripe with humor.

Yes, many of the jokes that wind up in the series are versions of actual memories or experiences that Jeff (or his family/friends) had in real life.

Jeff is so busy that he only has the time do his “reading” by listening to audiobooks!  He listens while he drives & while he draws.  His favorite book is The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson.

All the best, Wimpy Kid Team
