A family road trip SHOULD be a lot of fun…  To get you in the mood for the new paperback, read an extract from The Long Haul – EXCLUSIVE EXTRACT: Wimpy Kid The Long Haul.

A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you’re the Heffleys. The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig—not exactly Greg Heffley’s idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure – and this is one the Heffleys won’t soon forget.


Heading on holiday with your family soon? Here are a few fun Wimpy Kid activity sheets to keep you occupied on the road.
