Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Diper Överlöde just sounds like something your kid is gonna want to dive right into, doesn’t it? That sort of kid-appeal is exactly why the latest volume in Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, newly released today, is already an Amazon #1 bestseller — and why it’s the 17th book in a series that’s known for getting even the most reluctant readers on board.

In the newest adventure in the Wimpy Kid franchise, protagonist Greg Heffley thinks it’d be cool to tag along with his brother Rodrick’s band, Löded Diper. But between the band’s unexpected arguments, unpaid gigs that lead to money troubles, and too many late nights, Greg realizes he may have bitten off more than he can chew. Can he help Löded Diper become legends, or will it all just be an overload?

One early reviewer called Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Diper Överlöde
“a must-read for series fans,” adding, “The twist ending is one of my favorite parts. I actually guessed what might happen early on, but the more impossible it seemed even as the book weaved in subtle clues and foreshadowing that paid off brilliantly.”

Perfect for readers ages 8-12, this and all the other books in the Wimpy Kid series are famous for their laugh-out-loud, relatable humor and funny illustrations. It’s no wonder that since the first Wimpy Kid book came out in 2007, more than 275 million copies of the books in the series have been sold worldwide.

Need the rest of the Wimpy Kid series for a full collection? No problem — the first 16 can be found in this boxed set

The Diary of a Wimpy Kids series may not be classic literature in the traditional sense, but we think any book that gets our kids engrossed in its pages — and gets us some quiet time in the process — is a classic in its own right.
