Summary

The Third Wheel is the hilarious next book in the brilliant, best-selling and award-winning Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Available here as an unabridged audio download. Perfect for readers of 8+ and all the millions of Wimpy Kid fans. Also now a box office-busting major motion franchise with the third Wimpy Kid movie, Dog Days released in the UK in August 2012! Love is in the air, but what does that mean for Greg Heffley?

The Valentine’s Day dance at Greg’s school has turned his world upside down. As Greg scrambles to find a date, he’s worried he’ll be left out in the cold on the big night. His best friend, Rowley, doesn’t have any prospects either but that’s small consolation.

Then an unexpected twist gives Greg a partner for the dance and leaves Rowley the odd man out. But a lot can happen in one night, and in the end, you never know who’s going to be lucky in love... Share in the hilarious adventures of everyone’s favourite wimpy kid, Greg Heffley, in the highly-anticipated seventh book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.

Winner of Blue Peter’s Best Book of the Last 10 Years award.

I like it but

I think it's to short to be a story
But other than that it's a good story.
I would recommend it to people who like short stories.

Oh the children love it!

Yes Jeff Kinney's book is awesome and Dan Russell has done a fab job with his narrative skills. As good as the other books in the series The Thrid wheel was hilarious. We enjoyed listening to the book as a family and right from my 7 yr old to daddy all were rolling with laughter.

listening to Diary of a Wimpy Kid

I liked Diary of a wimpy kid because it really funny when he went to the valentines dance and the senior citizens group raided the dance!

I enjoyed this book and have rated it four stars because the narrator speaks quite fast
