If you have a child in elementary or middle school, he or she is probably very familiar with Greg Heffley, the titular wimpy kid in Jeff Kinney's bestselling series. Book eleven in the series is Double Down, which has been snatched up by happy kids since it hit shelves on November 1, 2016.
Kinney has maintained a strong relationship with his readers since his first Wimpy Kid title was published in 2007, and in 2015 he and his wife opened up a bookstore and cafe to draw even closer to the book lovers in his community.
