NEW YORK, NY, March 20, 2014—ABRAMS revs up its engines to announce that its Amulet Books imprint will publish Diary of a Wimpy Kid book 9 on November 4, 2014. The new book in the phenomenally successful series written and illustrated by Jeff Kinney—which has sold more than 120 million copies around the world—will also be published globally in more than 80 countries. The new Diary of a Wimpy Kid book will be one of the most anticipated releases of the year in both the United States and internationally.

The United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, Austria, New Zealand, Turkey, Greece, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Portugal, and Norway will release the book in their respective territories—83 countries in total—just after the U.S. debut. A striking, original new image by Jeff Kinney (above), featuring Greg Heffley and his family on a typical road trip by car, has been released to tease fans about what’s to come in the new book.
“For the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, I’m taking the Heffleys out of their home environment and sending them out on the road,” says Kinney. “Writing about an epic family road trip has really got my creative juices flowing, and I think this could be the funniest book yet.”
Following major publicity, marketing, and social-media promotions in the U.S. for the November 2014 release, the international partners will launch their respective campaigns around the world as fans cheer for the arrival of the newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid story.
Published in 2007, the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid book was an instant bestseller, and just a year later more than 100,000 copies were in print in the U.S. alone. With each subsequent book, in-print numbers continue to grow exponentially both here and abroad, to a combined 120 million copies by the time the eighth book, Hard Luck, went on sale in 2013. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck was the highest-selling book of 2013—for adults or children—in the United States, topping more than 3.2 million copies.
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series has been a fixture on the USA Today bestseller list (the first book in the series remained in the top 150 for more than 200 weeks) and is also on the Wall Street Journal and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. The series has remained consistently on the New York Times bestseller lists since the publication of the first book. The books have been sold in 48 different editions in 44 languages. Published by Amulet Books, an imprint of ABRAMS, Kinney’s work has been widely praised for its ability to turn reluctant readers on to books. Kinney was named one of Time magazine’s most influential people in the world. Three movies based on the book series have grossed more than $250 million internationally. The book series won Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in 2010, 2011, and 2012 (and is nominated for one for 2013), and Kinney won a Children’s Choice Book Award in 2012. Books in the series have won numerous awards voted on by students and teachers around the globe.

3 Black Beauty
HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. ‘…we call them dumb animals, and so they are, for they cannot tell us how they feel, but they do not suffer less because they have no words.’ When his beloved owners are forced to sell him, Black Beauty leaves his life as a young, care-free colt behind him and embarks on a working life of misery. Cruelly treated by his new masters, Anna Sewell rails against animal mistreatment in this poignant tale of a horse whose spirit can not be broken.

4 Peter Pan And Peter Pan In Kensington Gardens
The magical Peter Pan comes to the night nursery of the Darling children, Wendy, John and Michael. He teaches them to fly, then takes them through the sky to Never-Never Land, where they find Red Indians, wolves, Mermaids and.. Pirates. The leader of the pirates is the sinister Captain Hook. His hand was bitten off by a crocodile, who, as Captain Hook explains ‘liked me arm so much that he has followed me ever since, licking his lips for the rest of me’. After lots of adventures, the story reaches its exciting climax as Peter, Wendy and the children do battle with Captain Hook and his band. Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens is the magical tale that first introduces Peter Pan, the little boy who never grows any older. He escapes his human form and flies to Kensington Gardens, where all his happy memories are, and meets the fairies, the thrushes, and Old caw the crow. The fairies think he is too human to be allowed to stay in after Lock-out time, so he flies off to an island which divides the Gardens from the more grown-up Hyde Park.. Peter s adventures, and how he eventually meets Mamie and the goat, are delightfully illustrated by Arthur Rackham.
