Hey you guys! Do you know who Jeff Kinney is? You probably do. He’s the author of the best-selling Wimpy Kid books and the creator of Poptropica. Did you know that the original Wimpy Kid book was actually first published on Funbrain.com, the online home of Galactic Hot Dogs Book One (and on 4/6, Book Two)? If you go to the Funbrain homepage, you’ll see both books there under “Books and Comics!”
Jeff is also about to be a bookseller, too — he’s opening a way-cool bookstore in May called An Unlikely Story. It’ll be in Plainville, Massachusetts. If you live anywhere near there, you should go check it out!
Anyway, the Galactic Hot Dogs book crew are obviously big fans of Jeff, so they made sure to send him a special GHD care package. He sent us a fun picture when he got it. I think he’s kinda psyched about the book!
I hope you like my book as much as I like Galactic Hot Dogs Island on Poptropica, Jeff! Oh, and those Wimpy Kid books aren’t so bad, either. ;-)
And you guys, if you haven’t yet, definitely check out Jeff’s Wimpy Kid website for lots of cool stuff. It’s awesomesauce!
Have a great weekend,
