Who is Jeff Kinney? Cover
Patrick Kinney
John Hinderliter, illustrator
Even as a kid, people loved Jeff Kinney's drawings, and when he went to college, his comic strip Igdoof was so popular that it spread to other universities. Still, Jeff faced challenges. His cartoons were rejected by syndicates that claimed his art was unprofessional. Then, an idea struck: Jeff would write a journal from the perspective of a child, illustrated with doodles just like a kid might do. And so, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series was born. In this biography, Jeff's brother, Patrick Kinney, provides a knowledgeable look at the life of his brother. From Jeff's childhood pranks to his job developing online games, kids will love the chance to learn more about the creator of the Wimpy Kid books.
