Reviews for Third Wheel


Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Fall
In this seventh Wimpy Kid installment, Greg wants to take a real date to the school dance after having to merengue with Carlos in gym class. All his plans, however, seem to backfire and leave him looking ridiculous--once even wearing his mother's coat. The black-and-white cartoon-style illustrations add to the authentic middle-school humor that is this series' trademark.

Publishers Weekly Reviews 2012 December #1

Seven books into the bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Kinney isn't messing with a good thing, and he continues to mine middle-school life for comedic gold. He doesn't appear to be in danger of running out of material, either, covering everything from school elections and chocolate bar fundraisers (" lot of families like mine had to write a check to the school just to cover the cost of the candy bars their children ate," Greg says. "It's possible that nobody sold a single candy bar") to the traumas of "family-style" restaurants and Bring Your Child to Work Day. Greg even gives readers a glimpse of his (much) younger years, including his memories of life in the womb ("fter being hit by the cold air the blinding lights of the delivery room, I wish I'd just stayed put"). Fans will continue to enjoy Greg's ongoing efforts to come out on top, whether trying to secure a private bathroom stall at school or a date for the Valentine's Day dance. Ages 8â??12. Agent: Sylvie Rabineau, RWSG Agency. (Nov.)
