Dork Diaries

Dork Diaries is a humorous book series written and illustrated by Rachel Renée Russell and published by Aladdin Paperbacks.

These books are the personal diary of 14-year old Nikki Maxwell. They feature drawings, doodles and comic strips that chronicle the daily drama of her life in (and outside of) middle school.

Rachel Renée Russell said that this series was inspired by her own middle school experiences as well as those of her two daughters, Erin and Nikki Russell. Her older daughter, Erin, helps with writing and her younger daughter, Nikki, helps with illustrations.

Over 5 million copies of the Dork Diaries books are in print in the United States, and publishing rights have been sold in 32 countries with translation into 28 different languages.
