K10: Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever

The Kidliterati Ten is an interview series with young readers. We ask them about a favorite book and hope that you enjoy their answers.

Tell us a little about yourself: what is your first name, how old are you, and what is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
My name is Leo, and I’m 7. My favorite ice cream is Mint Chip.

What book did you read and why did you choose it?

I just finished reading Cabin Fever (Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, by Jeff Kinney). It's my favorite chapter book! Since it's been hot and I've been sweating, reading about the cold makes me feel cool.

Can you describe this book in one word?

What was your favorite part of this story?
When there was a huge snow storm coming, Greg didn't do his homework. But then the snow storm wasn't that bad and he had to go to school without his homework done. It was funny!

If you had a problem similar to the main character's problem, what would you do?
Greg made up a story. I would be honest to my teacher.

What would you say to your best friend to convince them to read this book?

All my friends have read this book, but I would say there are lots of jokes and it's really funny.

What do you think about the book's cover? 
[Touches the cover.] It has good texture.

Would you want to read another book about these characters? Why or why not?
Yes, because it's so amazing.

Can you name another book that reminds you of this one?
Dog Days in the series was really similar.

If you could ask the author one question about this book what would it be?
How long does it take to produce each book?

In answer to Leo's question, Jeff Kinney has this FAQ on his author website:
"How long does it take you to write a book?
It takes about nine months to create a new Wimpy Kid book; six months to come up with all the ideas/jokes (I need 350 per book), one month to write it, and two months to illustrate."

Thank you, Leo, for sharing with us!

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?
