Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series are now presented in awesome binaural audio. Listen with headphones for the full, glorious, effect! 

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? 

For the best listening experience, make sure to download in high-quality.

The Getaway

little to much sound effects for a audiobook even though it’s for children nice story
