My Daughter interviews Jeff Kinney, Author of the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series

When I was given the opportunity to interview Jeff Kinney, Author of the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series, I wasn’t sure what to say. I didn’t feel I knew enough about the series to come up with an interview for Jeff. Then it came to me… my daughter loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. So I asked her if she would feel comfortable interviewing him. She is always up for anything. After talking about it, we decided to video tape it rather than writing a script. It sounded like more fun.

We are a family full of procrastinators. He was scheduled to call us at 7pm PST .He called about 15 minutes early. We answered even though we weren’t finished discussing which questions she would ask him. We improvised. We were caught so unprepared that I turned on the video camera but forgot to hit record. *oops* Jeff was really nice and understanding. Briana’s questions were quick so I asked if he wouldn’t mind running through them again. So, even though we don’t have the ‘official’ answering the phone on video, we have the questions.

I was worried we wouldn’t have enough time… we had plenty, and then some. Had we been more prepared, we could have came up with more questions. She was satisfied with her first interview and is very excited to receive his latest book, The Third Wheel, tomorrow. It was just released on Tuesday, November 12th. Enjoy the video!

Have you read the books? Do your kids love them?
Leave a comment, I’m sure Bored Briana will enjoy reading them.
