Diary of a Wimpy Kid #5 (coming out on November 9) will be titled . . . The Ugly Truth:

Amulet Books, an imprint of Abrams, announced the book's title and released its cover today. The book's first printing will be an enormous 5 million copies (book #4, Dog Days, had a first printing of 4 million). Author Jeff Kinney has said this book is the "linchpin of the series." We'll have to wait a few more months to find out why.

In the meantime, read a hand-written (and illustrated) interview with Kinney or watch a trailer of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie. Also, did you know that Rodrick Rules, a movie based on book #2 in the Wimpy Kid series, is coming out on March 25, 2011?

Who's excited about this announcement?
