The cover is a gorgeous ombre going from dark purple at the top to a lighter shade of purple at the bottom, marking a break from the usually solid coloring of the covers. The title also has a decidedly 3-D twist, giving the cover a chilly look that really makes it pop.

With such a frosty cover, this will make an excellent holiday gift and winter read later this year!

WIMPY KID: THE MELTDOWN is scheduled for publication October 30th, 2018.
