Cabin Fever is the 6th instalment in the award winning Diary of A Wimpy Kid series. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever continues with the misadventures of Greg Heffley and how he lands into trouble at school and at home.
Summary Of The Book
Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever traces how Greg Heffley just cannot catch a break. With Christmas looming, the pressure to be on his best behaviour and get into Santa?s good books is just too high. The book continues to chart the hilarious situations that Greg gets into despite his best attempts to avoid them. In portraying Greg?s antics, it keeps alive the innocence and mischief of the protagonist.
An addiction to the online game, Net Kritterz, and Greg's desire to keep his virtual online pet alive, spark a series of events that could turn Greg either into a hero or a villain. These events could land Greg into trouble with the authorities, although he is not sure if that is worse than being snowed in with his family. Get rich schemes that backfire, a sibling rivalry that keeps going up a notch, a secret so dark it could destroy him, and Greg is in the midst of it all.
Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever deals with every child's anxiety over the holiday season. The classic conflict of being a good child versus a child's innate desire to follow natural instincts is well portrayed by Kinney and will have readers reminiscing their childhood.
