Book 11 in the phenomenally bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is out now!

The pressure's really piling up on Greg Heffley. His mom thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his 'creative side'.

As if that's not scary enough, Halloween's just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle.

When Greg discovers a bag of gummy worms, it sparks an idea. Can he get his mom off his back by making a movie . . . and will he become rich and famous in the process? Or will doubling down on this plan just double Greg's troubles?

This book is funny because the illustrations are cool. At the start of the book, Greg thinks he's being filmed so he keeps doing funny things. I like the Halloween part when Greg is looking for leftover sweets and makes a movie with the gummy worms. I laughed so much when Greg has to go to Champs meetings to practise his Rs.

The new Diary of a Wimpy book "Double Down" is one of my favourite of the amazing series. I like the book because it is hilarious. My favourite part was when they tried to make a movie. Although the book is great, it does have a bit of an odd story line. My favourite character is Greg because he is always very unlucky and funny! I would recoomend this book to any Wimpy Kid fans.

This book is about Greg who thinks people are watching him and making a TV show from his life.

He also tries to make a movie but it goes wrong and his friend gets famous rather than him.

I liked the movie bit the best.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Double Down is an amazing book. I'd already read all of the other Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, so when this book came out, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. When I finally got it, I never put it down, and finished it in two days! This book is extremely funny, and contains many jokes that is bound to make anybody any age laugh. I recommend this book to everyone.

Book 11 is as fun as all the other diary of a wimpy kid books. There are lots of funny parts, my favourite is were they try and make a film.
Lots of fun illustrations make the book good to read. As well as Greg you meet new characters in this book. It doesn't matter if you haven't read the first ten books, you should still read this.

I was soooooo excited to get this book. I think I broke my record of how fast I can read, as I had read it within about two hours of it coming through the post!
I love the Wimpy Kid books, and Double Down is a fantastic read. I didn't like it quite as much as 'Old School' - I can't really say why but I just enjoyed that book more.

Double Down made me laugh a lot, and I've read it another two times since.

Definitely get the whole Wimpy Kid series!

This is the latest book in the wimpy kid series.  It is book 11. I have read all of them except Old School and I have enjoyed all of them.  I haven't read them in order but it doesn't matter. 

I like this one the best because it was quite funny in places, especially the bit about the stolen apple and when they tried to make a movie. 

The funniest character is Greg,  who the story is about.  It is written as a series of Greg's diary entries. 

I recommend this book to boys and girls aged 7+ who want to read a good story by an amazing author.

This book immediately caught my interests because I really like the Wimpy Kid books and I find them amusing and easy to read.

It is about a wimpy kid called Greg, who has  two annoying brothers as well as an annoying mum! Greg is always trying to be more popular in his school and normally his plans don't go the way he wants them too..... When Greg tries to film a horror movie, everything seems to be against him and when a flock of wild geese come after his film props (gummy worms), he has to admit defeat. This book was great , I really enjoyed it. You don't need to have read other Wimpy Kid books to enjoy this one!
