No catches, no fine print just unconditional book loving for your children with their favourites saved to their own digital bookshelf. Elizabeth Laird. Valentina Giannella. She has raised two daughters and lived to tell about it. Dork Diaries was her debut novel and there are now over ten books in the internationally bestselling series which has appeared on the NYT bestseller top ten non-stop for over a year, and which has over 19 million copies in print worldwide. Rachel lives in northern Virginia with a spoiled pet Yorkie who terrorises her daily by climbing on top of her computer and pelting her with stuffed animals while she writes.
The books are similar to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series in that they're written diary-style with a font that looks like handwriting, along with doodles, drawings, and cool text features. The Dork Diaries series opens up tons of relevant and meaningful discussion with tweens, which is one of the things I really appreciate about the book. Chatting with your child about the book can lead to conversations about trust, friendship, and what's really important in life. And who is the superstar author behind this awesome series? Russell is the oldest of five children and has two younger sisters and two younger twin brothers. She wrote her first book in 6th grade as a birthday gift for her brothers.
The series has 11 short novels, and 2 bonus books that have a mix of stories, activities and tips for customising your own diary.
