Calling all Dork Diaries Superfans


Do you say squeee at the end of every sentence?
Do you wish Nikki Maxwell was your BFF?
Do you dream about reading the next dorktastic book?

If so, it sounds like you’re a Dork Diaries superfan!

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Rachel Renée Russell’s internationally bestselling Dork Diaries series, we’re asking fans of the adorkable series to send in a video review telling us about their favourite Dork Diaries book and why they think the series is so dorktastic. The reviews will then be shared online to help recruit new fans and we’ll pick our favourite video reviews to win the adorkable prize featured below! 

Calling all Dork Diaries Superfans

The prize includes a Dork Diaries bag, a best friends necklace, a Dork Diaries badge set, an adorkable bookmark and a copy of the brand-new reissue of the first-ever Dork Diaries book. PLUS, we’ll send the winners the latest book in the series, Spectacular Superstar, out 31st October in hardback! OM-Squeee!

All you need to do is ask a parent/guardian to complete this short form and send your video review to [email protected] by Wednesday 9th October.

To help you create your video, check out our top tips for filming a dorktastic review:

  • Hold your favourite Dork Diaries book up and show the front cover when doing your video review
  • State your first name and age but do not give your full name or any location details. Share the title of the book and tell us why it’s your favourite Dork Diaries book and why you think the series is so dorktastic. Perhaps tell us how many books in the series you’ve read, who your favourite character is and/or why you’d recommend the Dork Diaries books to other readers
  • Film your review in landscape – the reviewer should be in the centre of the screen and the camera should be held as still as possible (ask a friend/adult for help)
  • Make sure the background isn’t too bright
  • Ensure there is no background noise (e.g. dogs barking, the hoover on, a child crying)
  • Film the review in a space you feel comfortable in – e.g. an area you usually read in but be aware of what’s in the background (you don’t want any bills or address information showing!)

The ideal length of the review is 30 – 60 seconds. Please send the video review as a .mov or MP4 file (the standard format for most phones).

Squeee! We can’t wait to see your adorkable reviews!
