Product description

It’s Christmas – but the Heffleys are snowed in! Unable to get away from his irritating family, the Wimpy Kid is feeling far from merry. But his problems don’t end at home. A vandal has attacked the school, and Greg is the prime suspect. That means BIG trouble – even though he’s innocent. Or, at least, sort of… For now, the surprise blizzard has trapped Greg’s whole family indoors. He knows that when the snow melts, he’ll have to face the music. But could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family the whole holiday, with no entertainment but TV and arguments?

    I think this book is great… there is lots of challenges for greg and if he fails he does in a humorous way..

    I recommend this book to ages over 6 at least because some of the things that are funny to older kids, little kids won’t understand.

    This book made me laugh a bit. I like the bit when Greg wears a pair of Rodrick’s underwear without realising before it is too late. Another bit that I liked was when Greg opened his video game before Christmas.

    I recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of Diary of A Wimpy Kid.

    I read this again and again. When I first read this series I was 9 years old and I did not agree with Greg’s view of things. Now Iam a fan of the series. Cabin fever is the best in this series.

    I thought this book was suppose to have a message for little kids, because it actually gave me a shudder thinking of a old doll of your mums moving spaces over the night especially when you are awake, because then you can hear it.

    Many thanks from Huda

    good book i finished it in 3 hours I love this book, because it is very humorous, and unlike other Wimpy Kid books, this one made me very suspenseful of what would next. Also, even though Wimpy Kid action scenes are not really over the top, Cabin Fever has several good ones.

    loved it, I agree blizzard in with your family and being suspect when you are innocent is scary.

    the beginning is funny for example: if you do some thing bad in the first 11 mouth it is okay but if you do some thing bad you have to pay for it.

    This is the perfect book if you want to laugh, and it can get all children into reading. Kinney has brought Greg to life and he can feel like a brother to young boys. This book is perfect for younger readers who want a light, funny, entertaining book.

    This book is about a boy going to from primary to middle school and what he finds out about middle school along the way.

    As soon as I had read the first page, I was laughing out loud, and I just laughed until the end of the book. One really funny part was when he said “This year I am only accepting store bought presents, because last year I got this lovely blanket from Mom which I wore all day – then I looked in the photo album and saw that my great uncle died in it” So, he gave it to his brother Roderick for his birthday!!

    Another part of the book that really made me laugh was when he put neon green posters on the school wall and it rained heavily, so when he took down the posters the neon colour had stained the school walls – so he demanded that nobody answered the door just in case the police had come to fetch him for vandalism.

    This book would appeal to eight years and over – up to any age. Even my parents and grandparents laughed out loud when they read parts of this book.

    A good book to read if you are feeling sad as it will cheer you up. Also a good book to read when friends stay over to laugh together. It is a good book to read out loud for everyone to enjoy.
