As temperatures begin to drop, many kids are beginning to think about their favorite winter holiday of all: the snowday.

In author Jeff Kinney's 13th installment of his "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series, "The Metldown," a snow day quickly becomes a day of reckoning as a snowball fight ensues.

Kinney spoke with FOX8's Cindy Farmer.

He described the book as "very different" from his previous works and said it is like a "Game of Thrones for kids."

The story is fueled by the author's memories of snow days in Maryland and how the snowy grounds become battlegrounds.
