Hey, it’s Sam. And yes, title says all, it’s finally here. You’ve waited through snow, rain, and sunshine to get it. You’ve literally been on the streets crying for this book. And here it is. Ladies and gentlemen and wimpy kids everywhere…I give you, Cabin Fever.
The sixth and upcoming novel in Kinney’s phenomenal series, the spirits in the sky have brought not a pillow, or a sheet, but a blanket…a blanket of snow! In our next look at the house on Surrey Street, this Thanksgiving the subsidiary of Abrams is back to present the next wimpy adventure. The sky spirits may have brought a blanket too big of snow, because the Heffleys are snowed in via a blizzard! So Greg gets claustrophobic having to deal with family.
NO. OF PAGES? 224
RELEASE DATE? November 15
PUBLISHER? Amulet Books
MEDIA TYPE? Paperback and hardcover
OFFICIAL ROWLEY APPEARANCE? Not exactly
Making its unofficial announced debut in the previous book as “more Diary of a Wimpy Kid“, then being mentioned once more as “Diary of a Wimpy Kid 6“, the big announcement was actually in the summer; June 16, to be exact. Barnes & Noble are already hosting pre-orders for a big buster of $8.37, with Amazon hosting their own pre-orders for the same big price. Did I mention that an audiobook is being released when the book is? 😀 😀 😀 😀
And here is the big achievement Cabin Fever received–the next book to get a 6-million copy first-printing, the biggest printing to date! (According to Publishers Weekly) And Abrams, as part of its marketing push for the novel, plans to do six summer events (each of them a “snowball”), and it will continue to be promoted throughout this month by mailing promo materials to book retailers and librarians!
MORE THAT IS WIMPY
Did you read the Wimpy Kid Movie Diary as a tie-in to the first movie? Well, they’re making an updated second one, with the feats from the first movie, but the info on how the second one unfolded, such as with new illustrations, and more Rodrick Rules stills. And do you know that the DIY (do-it-yourself) book is getting an extended edition? With sixty more pages and sixteen new colored comics! RAD! Or, should I say, WIMPY!
And you know the surprise hits of the first two movies of the DOAWK series, right? Well, it’s been certified that a third one (The Last Straw) has begun filming this month! The destination is unknown (the highest guess is Vancouver), but the director (David Bowers, from movie two. Bowers, not Bowie or Bowser.) has been announced, and the first notification came from Rodrick (Devon Bostick) and his quote that it was “90% sure it [would] happen.” The announcement became certified by Greg (Zach Gordon) on his Facebook. Rumor has it that the movie will have a formula of scenes from book three, and a pinch from book four. Script writers and producers and planning on scripting, and they said that they need an Alex Aruda, who is rumored to be in movie three.
So, this Thanksgiving, be thankful for the sixth novel of the series! The wimpy adventure begins November 15, and forever be wimpy! And you know what else is wimpy? Today’s question, which comes from Fick on Facebrook. “If DOAWK had a game, what company would you accept it from, what rating would you gave it, and on what console would you play it?”
…This should be good. So, tell me: if the series got a game, what company would you play it from, what console would you play it on, and what ESRB rating would you give it?
