    Holiday season is here and Greg finds it difficult to stay on his best behavior from Thanksgiving to Christmas. The family gets their Christmas decorations out of the storage and starts to decorate the house but Manny has a fit when he doesn't get to put his ornament first and then everyone has to take off their ornaments so that Manny can get his way. Greg loves playing Net Kritterz games where he takes care of his virtual pet but taking care of the virtual pet requires real money which Greg doesn't have. When he asks his mum for the money, his mum tells him to earn his money so Greg goes around the neighborhood looking for jobs to do but it doesn't go down well and he actually ends up losing money. Meanwhile, school wants them to be active and play in the ground but all the play equipment has been taken off by school for the children's safety. Their school was in the bottom 10% in the physical ed department and they are trying to overcome that but it doesn't go as per the plan. Greg finally comes up with an idea to make money and enlists Rowley's help. They are planning to organize their own Holiday bazaar where they will sell stuff and have fun games but when they find out that the advertisement in the newspaper costs too much, they start their own newspaper The Neighborhood Tattler. When Greg doesn't get any money by selling the newspaper, he starts to give it away for free but the vice-principal tells him that it is against the rules so when Greg and Rowley make their own posters and put those up on the school walls afterhours, it starts to rain and the wall gets defaced. Greg and Rowley take off but everyone at school is trying to figure out the culprits. Rowley gives Greg away and Greg has to clean it as punishment but doesn't give Rowley's name away. When there is a blizzard, Greg's dad has to stay away and their house gets flooded and the power goes off but they find out that Manny is behind the whole thing. Their dad gets home just in time for Christmas. Greg is becoming a bit more mature I think. Manny is becoming difficult and wants to get his way in everything. Greg's dad and Rodrick didn't have a big part in this but Greg's mum was just too much in this. I can't believe she signed the graphic novel herself and told Greg that she got it signed by his favorite author. Another good addition to the series and sketches were hilarious as usual. 4 stars
