Book Depository Competitions

    blog imageTo celebrate the publication of the seventh incredible book in Jeff Kinney's blockbuster Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, we are offering you the chance to win one of 10 copies specially dedicated with YOUR name and signed by Jeff Kinney himself! Plus, we'll send every winner a copy of the most recent film, Dog Days, on DVD as well. All just in time for a perfect Christmas gift for Wimpy fans!

    In The Third Wheel, a Valentine's Day dance at Greg's school has turned his world upside down. As Greg scrambles to find a date, he's worried he'll be left out in the cold on the big night. His best friend, Rowley, doesn't have any prospects either but that's small consolation. Then an unexpected twist gives Greg a partner for the dance and leaves Rowley the odd man out. But a lot can happen in one night, and in the end, you never know who's going to be lucky in love...

    Check out this video of Jeff Kinney introducing The Third Wheel:

      My daughter loves this collection. She's 16 and still borrows them from the library so this collection would be great for her.

      My daughter loves Wimpy kid series. It is the only book once she started and can't put down! She finished Cabin Fever within one day when she was holidaying in Malaysia. My daughter and I would discuss about the stories from time to time as well.

      Wow, big prize! My daughter loves these books! And me too. I remember one night in a hotel, I had finished the book I was reading and the only readable thing around was my daughter's first book of this wimpy kid. I started reading quite unconfident (what's more, I didn't know what "wimpy" meant, English is not my native language)... And then, I found myself laughing like crazy and I ended the book! The day after my daughter couldn't believe it!
