NEW YORK (AP) — The 7th "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" novel, one of the few series as popular as "The Hunger Games," is coming out in November.

Amulet Books, an imprint of Abrams, announced Wednesday that a new book, currently untitled, was coming from "Wimpy Kid" author Jeff Kinney. The first six books have sold more than 75 million copies worldwide even though they remain available in paper only. Abrams spokesman Jason Wells said there was "no news at the moment" about possible e-book editions.

The new "Wimpy Kid" will come out in seven countries simultaneously, including Britain, Greece and Japan.
