Jeff Kinney and Wimpy Kid Get Cabin Fever!

Author talks to Kid Reporter about sixth book

By Grace McManus | November 15 , 2011

The sixth book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Cabin Fever, was released on Tuesday. But the day before the official release, the book was launched at a charity event in New York at Citi Pond, an outdoor ice skating rink at Bryant Park.

Wimpy Kid author and illustrator Jeff Kinney was there, and before the event he spoke with Kid Reporter Grace McManus. They spoke about the new book, the Wimpy Kid series, and why he thinks kids love his books so much.
