Before Reading

The cover seems pretty tempting...with Greg standing astonished by the window...apparently with Manny ;)

In Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Greg was 11, in Grade 6

In Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, Greg was 12, in Grade 7

In Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw, Greg was still 12 and in Grade 7 (since the book began in January)

In Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, Greg is having his summer vacation after he finishes Grade 7

In Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth, Greg was 13, and in Grade 8

This book breezed through me!

Sometimes a breeze is not what one is looking for. Like Greg, who is trapped in his own house due to a Blizzard.

This one was indeed different. Not the one we are used to where the school forms a major part of the of the troll universe for our Mr. Greg.

Damaging the school property might be fun for us all.

Well, fun until the school decides to involve the Police!. Unprepared and tormented, Greg is hounded by the fear of being locked up for vandalism.

1-10 I will say this book get's a 9 it is off the hook! I love the part when Greg was a Criminal but at the same time he was not. Also he had to stay in his grandma's house from All that snow! Also greg want a book singed by Kenny Centazzo but it was a fail. Manny(pest) was also messing with the heat in the house soo that he could get the heat all to hem self.

One of the best parts of this book is when Greg and Rowley are bullied by a kid who's in kindergarten. The part where Greg found out that his younger brother Manny is the culprit behind their lack of electricity is really hilarious. Can't believe that kids younger than Greg can pull this kind of act against adults. hahaha!

Mum: So what do you want to say about this?

LRN: 500 stars!!!1!

Mum: So, you've read all of these, right?

LRN: There's more. In this one, school property is a must, because there's no school property. Because people had accidents on these things, like the swing, which is a really funny one. It's when a dork named Francis Knott goes flying off the swing onto a see saw, which someone was on, and then woooooooo....

I feel like I'd read this before the whole time I was reading it. I think Kinney is running out of ideas.

Really? How long will this stupid franchise continue? Does Jeff Kinney not have enough money from his already existing six books (one which is just a blank journal!) and his movie franchise? Jeez, these cash cows are killing me.

Reading Diary of Wimpy Kid- Cabin Fever would not have been as funny as it really is, to me, if Archit, wouldn't be calling me three time- four times, five times a day and asking me to read this series, that he is now a big fan of Wimpy Kid.

He is not someone who gets behind you and until you read or watch the stuffs he suggested, would not let you live peacefully. If he recommends something, then you certainly put your faith in it. His choices are only the best ones. There's no doubt about it.

Recommends it for: parents of kids 8-11
My son is 9, and he got this book recently. We read it together, and I have to say this book was so funny and entertaining. I've been trying to get my son to read more, and these are the only books he will reread over and over again.

Recommend this to all parents who want their kids to read more!

I breezed through the sixth Wimpy Kid book in a few hours. It was simple enough to skim. I don't know if I've paid careful attention to the others or if this one was just somewhat choppy in the writing, but it seemed more like a bunch of little antecdotes and jokes rather than a continuous story in some parts. Still, it was pretty much like the others. Not as funny as the first one or two, but still a cute easy book. I did think it was pretty odd that Greg, who is pretty cynical and in EIGTH GRA ...more

Greg Heffley is an average boy that goes to middle school. Greg has an older brother named Rodrick, and a younger brother named Manny. His older brother Rodrick is mean. His younger brother is annoying and ruins Greg's games.

At school Greg has a bigger problem. Greg and his friend Rowley were hanging posters at the school. The paintings had paint on them. It started to rain, the rain washed the paint away and made it stain the wall! Will Greg and Rowley get busted or will Greg and Rowley live wi

I've read every single one of the Wimpy Kid books (and seen both movie adaptations) because my kids find them funny, and I wanted to see what all the hype was about. The first one was, indeed, hysterical, and the second less so but still entertaining. Each subsequent book has declined in entertainment value, and that negative trend continues with this latest installment. Each book focuses on Greg Heffley, a mischievous middle school student who finds himself in various predicaments, usually of h ...more

Now THIS one is as funny as the early ones. I kept laughing out loud on several occasions. Unlike The Third wheel it jumps around to different events and things happening, which is when I think these books succeed so well. Manny is becoming a little holy terror, isn't he?

a wonderful book to read
especially when you pretend to be studying for an exam that even you do NOT want to fail
but management books are boring so
you end up taking a 5 minute break that suddenly becomes a 7 day break

I was pretty pumped to continue going through the Wimpy kid books after I recently watched the movies again and I wasn't disappointed. What fun!

Only Greg to have a brother like Manny. That kid is something else.
On the 6th book, the fun remains.

I wanted to like this one more than I did. Perhaps it was my oldest son, a voracious reader, who might have prejudiced me before I even sat down to page one when he tossed it to me and said that it was lame. When pushed, he said that it simply wasn't as funny as the others, and he felt that Kinney was trying too hard.

Despite his youth, I do have to say that I agree with him. I have always laughed out loud at many of the scenes in his books. He has had a pulse on what kids go through and the twis

After reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever,I noticed that it was snowing a lot in the story. An example of my sighting is that on page 166, it says" The snow was already up to our mail box, and it wasn't showing any sign of stopping". By making an inference, I can infer that there is a blizzard going on. I infer that because in a blizzard it snows a lot. So, if snow is already up to the mail bow, I must mean that it is snowing A LOT. Specially if there is a blizzard going on. Plus I can pr ...more

As told by Greg Finnley:

Life is not easy when you’re just a kid. Always expected to do what adults request of you or get punished. Never allowed to speak up or be disrespectful especially if you want Santa to shine his guiding light on you Christmas Day. Remember he can see you even when you are sleeping and he knows your every move even when you are awake. I’m beginning to think he has his own GPS in every kid, radar or

Glad to see the Wimpy Kid series is back on track after last installment's fiasco. I hope this recovery continues and brings back the laugh-out-loud humor lacking since the first two or three books.

I finished reading Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid Cabin Fever. The summary of this book is that Greg Heffley damaged school property and Greg is the main suspect. Also the Heffley's get stuck indoors because of a terrible blizzard. I wouldn't want to be Greg. One reason I like Greg is because he is so humorous one good reason is when the gym teacher told Greg to do exercises at home instead he just used marker to make a six pack ,the next day at gym class these other kids did twelve pack som ...more

I'll be honest...I can't give an real review on this or any of the other Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. What I can tell you is my seven year old son LOVES the books from this series enough to forego Wii, Xbox, baseball practice, and touch football while he reads through a new one for the first time.

When I presented the Cabin Fever edition to him, he stared at it unbelievingly before wrapping his arms around my waste like I'd just handed him million dollars. I'm not sure what the attraction is, but
