ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney didn`t grow up wanting to be a children`s author. His dream was to become a newspaper cartoonist, but he wasn`t able to get his comic strips syndicated.

In 1998 Jeff came up with the idea for Diary of a Wimpy Kid, a story about a middle-school weakling named Greg Heffley. Jeff worked on his book for almost eight years before showing it to a publisher in New York.
