Wimpy Kid 6
The 6th book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series has been released! It is called Cabin Fever.

Here’s the official description:

“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?”

Cabin Fever is available for from all of the usual booksellers and Amazon is selling it for $8.37, which is the lowest we have seen it anywhere.

Have you read Cabin Fever yet? How does it compare to the other books in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series?

Other than that, we don’t really know too much about it. It is available for pre-order from all of the usual booksellers. Amazon is selling it for $11.16 but Barnes and Noble is blowing them out of the water at $8.37. We’ll post more once we learn more about it.

Jeff Kinney is releasing a revised and expanded edition of The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book. The book has 16 more pages of full-color comics (for a total of 32 pages of comics) and 32 more interactive pages. The interactive pages ask kids things like “What was the best dream you ever had?” and “What was the worst thing you ever ate?”

The interactive journal is a great supplement to the book series because it helps kids express themselves and practice writing in a fun way that mirrors the way that Greg writes in the Wimpy Kid books. It will also make a nice keepsake to look back on when the child is older.

You can pre-order The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book from Amazon for $9.84 and it is eligible for free Super Saver Shipping.

If you are looking for Christmas gifts for the Diary of a Wimpy Kid fan in your life, we have a few great ideas for you!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Game

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Cheese Touch Game. These are really hot this year, so you had better order soon! I’ve seen them at both Amazon and Walmart for about the same price.

Other Diary of a Wimpy Kid games include Scrabble and Uno. You can get those at Amazon as well.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Shirts

We did a whole post about where you can buy Diary of a Wimpy Kid Shirts if you are serious about wanting to find them. I’ve never seen them locally except when Borders had special promotions, so you will have to order them online. Your best bet is StylinOnline.com but you can also find them on eBay. We’ve done the searching for you, so you can just click on our links and it will take you directly to them.

There are at least 4 different Diary of a Wimpy Kid Puzzles, each corresponding with 1 of the first 4 books. They are 200 pieces each and run about $10 each or 2 for $15.


Diary of a Wimpy Kid Bookmarks

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Bookmarks are around $4-5 and would make great stocking stuffers.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Hats

Diary of a Wimpy Kid hats are hard to find because 1) only a couple of styles were made, 2) they were made for a limited time, and 3) they are sold out in most places. Check out our Diary of a Wimpy Kid Hat post for all of the places that we have been able to find them.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie Diary: This is a fun book for kids who want to learn more about how the Wimpy Kid books are being turned into movies.

We’ll continue to look for good Diary of a Wimpy Kid gift ideas over the coming weeks and post them when we find them.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid hats are hard to find because 1) only a couple of styles were made, 2) they were made for a limited time, and 3) they are sold out in most places.

Amazon has had a couple in stock but they sell out quickly and are often through resellers.

Borders has a purple one but it is not available locally. If you are lucky, you can keep trying back at your local stores or Borders.com and they do come into stock every now and again.

If you are in a pinch and not looking for any particular hat, Retrofacts is selling some through their eBay store as well:

With the impending release of Diary of a Wimpy Kid 5: The Ugly Truth, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Ice Cream Truck will again be touring the country. Last year one truck visited 40 locations, and this year two trucks will visit even more (52 total).

The tour will begin on August 15 and end August 28 with stops from Florida to the Midwest to Canada. Although Jeff Kinney will not be present at the stops, it will still be a pretty awesome opportunity. The truck will be giving out purple treats at each location and Abrams will donate a children’s book to nonprofit organization First Book for each treat distributed. You get ice cream and someone in need gets a book! I’m particularly excited because one of the stops is only 10 minutes from where I live.

You can get the full details from Publishers Weekly and even see an agenda of where the Wimpy Kid Truck will be and on what days.

It’s official! The fifth installment of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is going to be titled “The Ugly Truth.” We do not yet know much about the plot except the tagline that we keep seeing–”This Fall…Everything Changes.” We also previously reported a bit of a teaser from the author: “I feel like everything in the series has been leading up to the fifth book, which is about change and the different ways Greg and his best friend, Rowley, deal with it,” said Jeff Kinney. “To me, this book is the linchpin in the series, and I’m excited to be writing it.”

You can pre-order diary of a Wimpy Kid 5 now, and it will be released on November 9.
