Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel

You know you have made it as an author when your book gets a billboard this size!!

Put Tuesday, November 13th in your diary or on your calendar because that’s the day The Third Wheel will be hitting the shelves in the shops!  It is the seventh book in the amazingly popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.

Love is in the air—but what does that mean for Greg Heffley?

 A Valentine’s Day dance at Greg’s middle 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 a small consolation.

 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.

 Take a close look at the front cover for some clues …

What is Greg carrying? Who are they for?
