Get to know the GIANT Greg!

October 17th, 2010 by

What would you do if you looked up and saw this face, the size of a city block?


That’s right — A CITY BLOCK! That’s what I will be looking at during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year. Greg, our beloved anti-hero from Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, will be floating above our heads in the form of a balloon. But unlike the image above, Greg will be smiling in the parade… kind of.

Here’s what the balloon will look like, but much, much bigger:

And YOU could have a chance to see it! The publisher is having a sweepstakes and you could win a trip to NYC to see Giant Greg in person!

Greg will be in the parade to celebrate the 5th book he’s starring in: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth, which comes out on November 5th. Even I’m looking forward to seeing what Greg is up to (despite my outspoken reservations about him, which you can hear all about in the KidsmomoMO Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie review)!

Perhaps one day Nancy and Karen will be immortalized as giant Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons… *thinks about it* NAHHHHHH!
