Cabin Fever

I love this book out of all the other Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. This is a great educational book for kids ages 8-12. If you have never read this book before here is a summary It's November, and Greg is already worried about making Santa's naughty list. To get info directly back to St. Nick, Greg's mom enlists the help of an elf doll that she calls Santa's Scout. That doesn't stop the mischievous misadventures, though, as Greg ices over someone's driveway (thinking a hose would be faster than shoveling) to make money to feed and clothe his online pet, pretends to use his mom's exercise game (but just sits and presses the buttons instead), and accidentally defaces school property with posters that stain the walls (and there's no way he's owning up to that). But when a blizzard strands Dad comfortably at a hotel and the rest of the family is stuck with limited food and no electricity, that's when the Christmas holidays really get interesting.

Mild about some things, but still hilarious!

Yep, pretty mild. A good book as well and is very funny. He is kind of a good role model because he did scoop up some snow so a restaurant could open. :) Very good!

Amazingly, Awesomely Funny!

Love it a lot! Greg is super funny (most of the time). But the narrative is hysterical! The best part is when you find out that Manny broke the parental lock on the TV and then changed it so that the only shows they could watch were his favorite. Awkward!

Stuck In The Cold

A young boy named Greg Heffley has a struggle against the vice principle of his school for damaging school property. He had already apologized about the situation of damaging the school property, but the police are chasing him down. Since the blizzard hit the snow got huge, Greg was trapped indoors in his house. Once the snow melts he will face his fate. Will Greg be free from his crimes or will this be the end of him? This was a very good book I really enjoy reading this because of its humor and creativity. I recommend this book to anyone who like books that have humor in it because this book has a lot of it.
