The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book is the revised and expanded edition of Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book, released on May 10, 2011, nearly 3 years after the original. The hardcover version contains 16 new pages of full-color comics (bringing the total up to 32) and contains 60+ pages of new pages. It also has a new cover. But due to there being new pages, the pages where you write your own journal has decreased since the new book had 45 pages of writing your own journal, while the old one had about 80 pages of it.
