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?
I absolutely loved this novel in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. You can never get too old for these books. I just can't believe all the hilarious high-jinx that went on in this novel.
This was like a pre-Christmas read for me. I was in the mood for holiday books, and this was the perfect one. It was hilarious, but also a great, satisfying read. Jeff Kinney always makes you laugh out loud when you read his books, and every one of them is great. As a lover of the series, and the two movies, this one was no less satisfying.
After Greg "accidentally" ruins school property, a blizzard hits, and the Heffley family is stuck inside, except for Greg's dad. With Manny, his spoiled little brother causing chaos and temper tantrums, and Rodrick, his mean, bully of a brother moving into his room, the Heffley family is one step away from going crazy.
Greg goes through many problems and solutions. You have to give him credit for his trying. He deals with his crazy family, and his friends. All the characters in the novel are always getting into crazy and funny situations, and this is a great read if you want humour for the holidays.
The ending was amazing. It was unbelievable after everything that happened, but you will laugh through the book until you realize how much you've read. I was flipping through the pages.You definitely have to read all the hilarious things that happen in this novel, and how maybe, maybe, the Heffley family can still have a great holiday. :)
