Meet the Wimpy Author of ‘Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid’!

Here’s introducing the newest Wimpy Kid author – Rowley Jefferson! Rowley’s best friend Greg Heffley has been chronicling his middle-school years in thirteen diary of a Wimpy Kid journals… and counting. But it’s finally time for readers to hear directly from Rowley in a journal of his own.

In Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid, Rowley writes about his experiences and agrees to play the role of biographer for Greg along the way. (After all, one day Greg will be rich and famous and everyone will want to know his life’s story.)

Let’s meet the author, Rowley Jefferson!

Rowley doesn’t like horror stories as we can tell from this incident.

“I’ve gotta tell the whole truth. I wet my pants when I was in the basement and heard those noises outside.”


Rowley has observed odd things about Greg’s stories.

“We’ve been friends for a long time and he’s told me a BUNCH of things that seemed a little shaky so now I’m kind of thinking not everything he’s told me is a hundred percent accurate.”


Rowley is composed.

“I knew that Greg was trying to make me mad but for some reason that song didn’t really bother me that much.”


Rowley might be a little naïve and gullible.

“Well I knew Greg was just trying to get out of giving me the candy he owed me so I tried to act like I thought this Good Boy award thing was dumb. But somehow Greg could tell I thought it was kind of COOL.”


Rowley is honest and doesn’t encourage cheating on tests.

“I whispered to Greg to go away because he was trying to CHEAT. But Greg said it’s not cheating since we were study partners and we both had the exact same information in our brains.”


Rowley is hardworking.

“I had to stay up for two more hours uncrinkling my notes and taping them into my notebook and was up ANOTHER half hour researching stuff on my dad’s computer.”


Rowley is a true friend to Greg.

“I know me and Greg don’t always get along but like Mrs Heffley said, sometimes friends get on each other’s nerves.”

Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid: Rowley Jefferson’s Journal offers readers a new way to look at the Wimpy world—one fans won’t want to miss!
