Because The Girl (age 11) is doing so well in school, we treated her to the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid book when it was released on Nov. 15.  It took her only a couple of hours to devour this one, and now she’s already waiting for the next installment in the series.  Diary of a Wimpy Kid:  Cabin Fever is the 6th book in the series, and her favorite so far.

Greg Heffley is in big trouble.  School property has been damaged, and Greg is the prime suspect.  But the crazy thing is, he’s innocent.  Or at least sort of.

The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise blizzard hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors.  Greg knows that when the snow melts he’s going to have to face the music, but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays?  (publisher’s summary)

Imagine being trapped in your house with your mom, whose glasses break and is pretty much blind without them, your older brother, who terrorizes you at every moment and you have to share a room with him, and your little brother, who needs his mustard put on his hot dog just so or he throws a fit.  Well, you get all that and more in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever.

I loved this book!  My favorite parts were Manny and the hot dog because Greg couldn’t get the mustard right and how they undecorated the Christmas tree because Manny wanted to be the first one to hang an ornament.  I loved this book so much I read it in a day!  I would give it 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to everyone if you want to laugh your pants off.

I recommend you read the first book before this one if you want to know more about the characters.  This was my favorite in the series because it’s the funniest.  So go read it!
