Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney

Puffin, 2011. ISBN 9780143306641.
(Ages: 8+) Highly recommended. The sixth book in the hugely successful and hugely entertaining Wimpy Kid series does not disappoint. This book is set around Christmas and chronicles a few weeks in the always chaotic life of Greg Heffley. Again Greg manages to get himself into many awkward situations despite desperately trying to do the right thing. Teachers will immediately think of similar real life students that are always likeable but always in trouble.
There are laugh out loud moments, and other moments that are quite poignant, as Greg reflects on the value of friendship and having a family that shows unconditional love for each other. This is another Wimpy Kid book that will not stay on the shelves for long.
