Publisher's Summary

Puffin presents the audiobook edition of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway by Jeff Kinney, read by Dan Russell.

Greg Heffley and his family are getting out of town. 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 the Heffleys 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?

    "This book is incredible "

    but,the accent of the reader is sometimes confusing but normally he is quite understandable.
    Jeff Kinney books are ALWAYS incredible!
