6. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever

The story starts before Christmas, when Greg Heffley wants to behave well to get really good gifts for the holidays. In addition, his mother obtains a doll which she calls "Santa's Scout" that is meant to keep track of how he behaves and make his behavior better. Greg is afraid of this doll because he thinks that it might actually send information to Santa.

Greg starts playing an online game called "Net Kritterz" that is based around treating a virtual pet and requires paid features. Greg's mom, Susan, doesn't want to give him money to spend on the site and says he has to earn money on his own. Greg tries some bad ideas for getting money until he finds out that he can buy "Drummies", tasty fried chicken snacks that are sold at his school's holiday bazaar, for less than the school sells them for, so he decides to start his own holiday bazaar and invites his best friend Rowley to do it with him. They first attempt to build a cardboard home-made version of Pac-Man, which fails to work. They realize they need to advertise their bazaar and try to ask the local newspaper to do it. However, they discover the newspaper's advertising fee is very expensive, so they try to establish their own newspaper, The Neighborhood Tattler. When a string of conflicts and failures prevent them from making their paper a reality, they decide to hang up posters that advertise their bazaar in their town, starting with the school, but rain causes all the ink to bleed on the school's walls, leaving green stains that won't come off. After narrowly escaping with only their face shapes noted, the school administrators and police search for the culprits: they ask the whole student body to tell them who did it anonymously. Scared of getting caught, Rowley leaves a note at the principal's desk anonymously saying "Me and Greg Heffley vandalized the school." The vice principal asks Greg if he would like to name his partner, but Greg refuses to avoid sending his friend into trauma, and agrees to scrub the dye off himself. When Greg arrives home, he discovers a note from the police stating they visited to find nobody home and that they will return later; believing the vice principal went back on his word and has sold his name to them, Greg contemplates how he'll have to avoid his arrest.
