Composition Topic: My Favourite Book
Of all my magnificent reading books, “ Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever” is my favourite. This book is about a kid named Greg Heffley who is in big trouble; school property has been damaged and Greg is the prime suspect. The crazy thing is that he is innocent; or kind of. A surprize blizzard hits and the Heffley family is trapped indoors with no electricity and no food; or so they thought. But Greg knows that when the snow melts he is going to have to face the music -give an explanation. This book had some funny parts which I loved. For example, when Manny (Greg’s little brother) got upset because someone hung his favourite ornament , the candy cane, on the Christmas tree. Their mom took the candy off the tree and gave it back to Manny. But Manny was upset because he had wanted his candy to have been the first one on the tree. Another funny part was when Greg got the title of “Student of the Week” and was awarded a bumper sticker. He asked his Dad if he could stick it on his new car but his Dad retorted that he did “ not want any junk on his car”, and gave the sticker to Manny so he could put it on his tricycle or something. Instead Manny stuck it on the driver’s side of their Dad’s new car without his father’s knowledge. I like this book because I loved the way the author, Jeff Kinney introduces intrigue in the plot. It turns out that when the Heffley family lost electricity and had no food it was the work of Greg’s little brother, 3 year old Manny who had deliberately turned off the main switches to every room in the house except his. Manny had done this because no one would teach him how to tie his shoes. The book was so interesting that I was forced to read it a third time.
