Greg Heffley and his family are getting out of town.

With the cold weather and the stress of the approaching holiday season, the Heffleys decide to escape to a tropical island resort for some much-needed rest and relaxation. A few days in paradise should do wonders for Greg and his frazzled family.

But the Heffleys soon discover that paradise isn't everything it's cracked up to be. Sun poisoning, stomach troubles, and venomous critters all threaten to ruin the family's vacation. Can their trip be saved, or will this island getaway end in disaster?

          Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway The book DWK: The Getaway was a good read. It is a book that will make you laugh till you’re out of breath!  The book is about Greg, (AKA Wimpy Kid) Who wants to stay home for Christmas? However, his mom and dad have other plans. They go to a resort, where some certain living beings stop them from having much fun. They are deemed criminals! Will Greg and his family get out of there???

                    I really like this book. Diary of a Wimpy Kid Getaway is about Greg and his tired family, who decide to spend Christmas on a tropical island. Greg dissagrees with the desition, but goes along with anyway. Rainy weather, delayed plane rides,and scared little brother ruin just the way there. Plus, it all gets worse when they get to the island. Rodricks meets a girl, Giant spiders enter the picture, and a box jelly fish gets in the pool, maybe something will actually turn out right for Greg and his family.

                      Diary of a wimpy kid is a book that is about a kid named Greg who looks forward to things but it turns out to be wrong. In the getaway they are going on vacation, they thought they were going to be late but the airplane was delayed.
