In the book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney, Greg’s parents buy a toy called Santa’s Scout. It sees Greg and his brother Rodrick. Everywhere Greg goes, Santa’s Scout is there and he thinks it’s Rodrick moving it wherever he’s going. Santa’s Scout checks out if Greg is being naughty or nice. Greg is nervous that he will mess up and be on the naughty list. Greg is being extra nice in front of Santa’s Scout. Rodrick is trying to get Greg on the naughty list by lying that Greg stole money from his mom. Rodrick moves the toy everywhere Greg goes so if he messes up and Santa’s Scout is there watching him then he’s on the naughty list

Greg’s family gets stuck in a snowstorm and they are running out of food and there’s no electricity. Greg is stuck inside the house with his family and cabin fever sets in. 

I like how the pictures show us what the book is trying to tell you. It helps tell you what’s happening in the story. The book is is funny because there is a lot of dumb things that happen to Greg that embarrass him. If you watch Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies, I recommend you read the books.
