Boys who reviewed Jeff Kinney Books:

Cabin Fever - Reviewed by Jamie McElwain (2nd Class)

The name of the book is Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Cabin Fever. The characters are Greg, Manny, Mum and Dad. At the start of the story Manny wanted his ornament to go first on the Christmas Tree. My favourite part of the story is in the middle. This is when Greg gives Manny a hot dog with Mustard. Manny had a temper tantrum because the mustard was the wrong way on the hotdog.

 At the end of the story, Greg and his family get into the newspaper. I thought the book was funny and it was nice to read. I will tell all my friends to read it. I would give it 10/10. I only have six more books to get to have the whole collection so I hope I get them soon.

Cabin Fever - Reviewed by Finn McElwain (2nd class)

The story is set in a town during Winter. The main characters are Greg, Manny, Rodrick and Rowley. My favourite character is Greg because he is the main character and he is always having silly ideas.


They were living in a house when a load of snow was piling up and they couldn't get out of the house for awhile and soon the electricity went out! Or did it? We find out that Manny just turned off all the lights except his. The book was exciting. I liked the book because it was very funny. I would give it 9/10.

I read the book Rodrick Rules by Jeff Kinney. The main characters were Greg, Rodrick Rowley and Manny. My favourite character is Rodrick because he plays loads of tricks on Greg and he annoys him.

Cabin Fever - Reviewed by James Allen

I read the book Cabin Fever. It was written by Jeff Kinney. The story took place at Greg's house. Manny is my favourite character because he's so funny and calls Greg "Bubbly" and because he messes with Greg's stuff. Greg and Rowley loved dummies so they set up a bazaar, selling loads of dummies. But then it started snowing and by the next day, it was up to their mailbox. But their mom made them do work so it was like they were still in school. I really liked this book because Greg nearly got arrested and got stuck in his house for a very long time. This book was just right and I would give it 10 out of 10.

Cabin Fever - Revied by Calum McGahan

My favourite book is Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney. It's about a boy called Greg Heffly and his friend Rowly. The boys have a lot of adventures together. Greg goes around to peoples houses to shovel their driveways for five bucks.

Coach Malone teaches P.E. but the boys don't like all the training. They do small push-ups and they pretend to do the exercises for homework. My favourite part is when Greg's dad gets a new car because it's a sports car. I'd give this book 10/10.

Cabin Fever - Reviewed by Conor Brady (4th Class)

The story took place in Greg's home and at his school. The main characters in this story were Greg, Rowley, Manny and Dad. My favourite character is Greg. He is very funny. He is up to no good. He is always planning mischief and he's always the one in trouble. He tries to get the girls to like him with a plan but he always ends up looking very foolish.


The story is set during the Christmas holidays. When the school property gets damaged, Greg is blamed for the graffiti. Greg is forced to stay with his family due to a blizzard. The story is about how Greg copes with his family and his worries about the punishment facing him when he returns to school. I enjoyed reading this book because I know all the characters well.

They went to the Movies. Greg likes to run after the dog. There are good pictures in the book of Greg when he was a baby.

Cabin Fever - Reviewed by Ernestas Valtauris (2nd Class)

The characters in this story are Manny, Greg, Dad and Mum. My favourite bit was when Greg gave Manny the "Student of the Week" ticket and then Manny put the ticket on the car. Then when Greg saw the ticket on the car he was surprised and tried to get it off. He scrubbed it. The steel wool made the bumper sticker come off. The steel wool didn't just scrape the the bumper sticker and bugs off the car, it scraped the paint off too. So then Dad bought a new car. Dad was not happy about that. Mum was excited about the new car. I thought this book was funny and interesting. I would give this book 10 out of 10.
