Jeff Kinney’s latest book! How I had been waiting to read it! Greg is my favourite character as always. The book starts in January with a heatwave! The best part was the major snow fight, however, I enjoyed the whole book.

My favourite part of this book was the snowy link to the cabin fever book, which I've also read and loved.

The neighbourhood turns into a bit of a battle ground. 

It's a really funny book and I loved reading it. I read the whole book the same day I bought it so you can definitely say I liked it!

I would recommend this book.

I liked this book because , well , it's wimpy kid! . All the laughs put into a snowy setting . If you thought you'd heard all the snow related gags in cabin fever , you were wrong . Grey and rowley take on the slips and slides of a bumper snow shower , but with the lower street kids to contend with with ,  will the pair triumph or fall a few snow balls short of snow man ? 

On a more analytic note , this is a slow burner to start with , ( the jokes keep you on board ) the book takes a surprisingly adventurous twist later , which is new and refreshing from the author . suitable for all ages and it's good mix of slapstick and witty laughs will no doubt have adults ,  children , dogs , buddies and dragons  laughing their socks off . Another awesome serving from the legendary author , but heed this warning , a  strong safe may be needed to keep it out of prying hands

I requested this book from the library and I was so happy to be the first person to read it. It was such a good but and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It was the best out of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series so far because it was so funny.  The illustrations were great. It was quick and easy to read and I would recommend it to anyone aged 8+

This was again another amazing installment to the diary of a wimpy kid series.  When I first saw this book advertised (like I have done with the previous ones) I-as always-was very excited.  When I received this book from the library I finished the whole thing that night.  I was gripped.  Fast paced and hilarious, this book is about Greg Heffley's latest adventure in the winter becomes a war when a huge snow fight takes place between the Lower Surrey Street kids and the Upper Surrey Street kids.  Who will win...

I asked my Mum to buy me this book as I have loved all the others in the series. Greg and Rowley are as hilarious as ever. Snow provides a wintry battlefield as the school closes down and everyone heads to the streets. I particularly liked the part when Greg finds a baby with his own snow fort! The snow fits with the season and Christmas coming. 
As ever, the writing is funny and easy to follow, making it a fun read. I am very glad I got it and I am sure it will be another best-seller in lots of countries.

Very funny book and great illustrations I loved all of adventures. 

My 6 year old son sent me email (with my husband’s help)asking for money to buy this book at Travelling Books Fair in his school. He read it at school break, in the toilet and bedtime, kept giggling all the time! It took him 2 days to finish the book and for the next 2 weeks was telling us jokes from the book !
