November release for Diary of a Wimpy Kid book fourteen, titled Wrecking Ball

Puffin has revealed that the fourteenth title in the bestselling Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney is titled Wrecking Ball, and will be published worldwide on November 5 2019. The title and cover have been unveiled through a wrecking ball-themed digital ad campaign which will be supported by influencers online throughout May, and Kinney will visit the UK this autumn as part of a major marketing and publicity campaign.

Wrecking Ball follows the Heffley family as they receive an unexpected inheritance that allows them to start making improvements to their house - but when the construction work gets tough, they may be forced to leave their home. The latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid, has spent five weeks at the top spot in the UK children's market, and more than 200 million copies of the books in the series have been sold globally.
