Description of this Book

'The world has gone crazy for Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid' - Sun Greg Heffley and his family are getting out of town in the twelfth instalment of Jeff Kinney's bestselling series. The only holidays I want to hear about are the ones where things went WRONG. That way, I don't feel bad about missing out. With the cold weather setting in and the stress of the Christmas holiday approaching, 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 they soon discover that paradise isn't everything it's cracked up to be. Sun-poisoning, stomach troubles and venomous creatures all threaten to ruin the family's vacation. Can their trip be saved, or will this island getaway end in disaster? Whether a loyal fan already or new to the Wimpy Kid books, THE GETAWAY is the perfect book for young readers of 7+, whether they love to read or need a bit more encouragement. With engaging writing, hilarious illustrations on every page and an action-packed holiday-based plot, THE GETAWAY is a winner. 'Hilarious' - Telegraph Praise for Jeff Kinney: 'The world has gone crazy for Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid' - Sun 'Kinney is right up there with J K Rowling as one of the bestselling children's authors on the planet' - Independent 'The most hotly anticipated children's book of the year is here - Diary of a Wimpy Kid' - Big Issue
