For educators looking for new digital reading resources for their Chinese language learners in the Sora reading app, TrueLake has a treat: new Chinese EPUB editions of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series!

“Filled with laugh-out-loud text and hilarious cartoons, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series follows Greg Heffley as he records the daily trials and triumphs of friendship, family life and middle school where undersized weaklings have to share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner and already shaving! On top of all that, Greg must be careful to avoid the dreaded CHEESE TOUCH!

The first book in the series was published in 2007 and became instantly popular for its relatable humor. Today, more than 250 million copies have been sold around the world!”

TrueLake – the exclusive publisher of Diary of a Wimpy Kid Chinese ebooks and audiobooks – just released Chinese, Chinese-English bilingual and Chinese pinyin versions of the text! And for a limited time, TrueLake is offering a discount to OverDrive customers:  50% off the first book in the series, and 30% off any additional TrueLake Diary of a Wimpy Kid books.
