Fregley is gawking creepily at your book choices to help me tell you about the Diary of a Wimpy Kid party we recently held at my library for the Book 8 launch. We usually have it closer to the launch date, so we can get the event kit, etc, but I noticed that last year the kids who wanted to put the new book on reserve on that day were already facing a reserve line of 50+. An early release day about a month ahead of time? PERFECT.
AND, it lets me give all you awesome readers some free stuff to make your upcoming Wimpy Kid party a snap.
