The only Canadian stop on the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Getaway World Tour will be right here in Montreal. On Nov. 20, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., author Jeff Kinney will sign copies of his latest book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid #12: The Getaway, at Babar Books in Pointe-Claire. In this new book, the Heffley family decide to get out of town and celebrate a stress-free Christmas at a resort, but their holiday turns out to be anything but relaxing.
Since the publication of the first book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, in 2007, the series has remained on the New York Times bestseller lists for more than 450 weeks. The books are now available in 61 editions and 52 languages. The series has won several awards, including two Children’s Choice Book Awards and six Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. And four movies have been made based on the book series.
Tickets for the event are $16.95, which includes admission for one child and one adult, as well as a copy of the book itself. Kinney will only be signing copies of books purchased at the event.
Babar Books is located at #6-46 St. Anne St. in Pointe-Claire village.
