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?”
Greg Heffley is any typical 6th grader in the 2nd Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie, Rodrick Rules. Like any other siblings, they fight, until mom comes up with “Mom Bucks,” that they earn for bonding with each other. When mom, dad, and Manny go to a Water Park, Rodrick throws a party and Greg gets involved. But, what happens when they get caught, and Rodrick gets grounded from the Talent Show? Will Greg talk his parents into letting Rodrick play with his band, Loaded Diaper in the competition? Watch the movie to find out!
The 6th book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series has been announced! Set to be released on November 15, 2011, it will be called “Cabin Fever.” The cover shows Greg stuck in the house while it is snowing outside.
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.
When is the Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 Movie coming out? March 25, 2011! The movie is based on the second book in the Wimpy Kid series, Rodrick Rules. Familiar characters from the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie will be back including Greg (the Wimpy Kid), Rowley, Chirag, Manny, Fregley, Rodrick, and Patty.

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 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.
As if the release of Diary of a Wimpy Kid “The Ugly Truth” were not exciting enough, we have now gotten word about a new Diary of a Wimpy Kid tour. The book goes on sale November 9, and the tour will start that day in Austin, Texas. The tour will then head to Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville, and Birmingham that same week. Bookstores will be giving away up to 2000 tickets for fans to see Jeff Kinney speak. Other events planned include a Cheese Touch board game and a dunk tank.
