DIARY OF A WIMPY KID #6 is the latest book in the phenomenal bestselling series that explores the relationship between Greg Heffley and his best friend Rowley Jefferson. Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is a New York Times #1 bestseller, and has also appeared on bestseller lists in PW and USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. There are over twenty‐seven million copies in print, and the first book has been recently been adapted into a blockbuster movie by Fox Studios.

“I’m very excited to be writing the sixth Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, which features the Heffley family being snowed in,” said Jeff Kinney. “Having just experienced an epic winter in New England, I’ve had plenty of inspiration to draw from.”

“Book Six explores the Heffley family dynamic,” said Charles Kochman, editorial director and editor of the Wimpy Kid series. “In this latest story Jeff will test the family’s resolve as they confront their greatest challenge…each other.”

“This is clearly the most anticipated book of 2011, with the largest initial print run,” said Michael Jacobs, President and CEO of Abrams. Jeff Kinney’s millions of fans are eager with anticipation, and the release of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever will be an elating experience for them. We’re thrilled to bring millions of kids—and their parents, caregivers, librarians, teachers, and friends—the book this fall, and believe that our laydown of Cabin Fever will help make this holiday season a great one for booksellers. Our pre-sales and marketing campaign over the next few months will help build that excitement and anticipation for our laydown of Jeff’s next number-one bestseller.”
