The brand NEW instalment from the internationally bestselling Dork Diaries series, now with 13 million copies in print worldwide! Perfect for fans of Wimpy Kid, Tom Gates, Jacqueline Wilson and James Patterson.
All of the Dork Diary installment come scripted in diary form. The diary being wrote by main character Nikki, who shares her thoughts, feelings, struggles and adventures throughout.
The Drama Queen installment starts off being wrote by Nikki and then by Mackenzie after she steals the diary. The change is easily noticed by change of txt font and Nikkis txt being bolder than Mackenzies. Once Nikki gets the diary back, the txt once again changes to reflect this.
There are a few images throughout the book in sketched cartoon form. I think these are meant to be the book characters doodles.
