    This book was good. Although,I did feel sorry for Greg when no one wants to go to the valentine’s day dance with him.

    The third wheel is another amazing book from the wimpy kid series. Greg has a lot of bad luck as he doesn’t have a date for valentines and his girl friend starts going out with his best friend rowley. It’s a a funny story that potrays the harsh truth. I love the series.

    Greg’s looking for a date to the dance but it doesn’t turn out well when his wingman gets a date instead of him

    Very fun to read. The issues are simple but it still retains the Wimpy Kid flavor. nice illustrations, as always, but plot somehow to simple as compared to the other books. But i would surely recommend it to any wimpy Kid fan.

    It’s Valentine’s Day and Greg desperately wants a pretty girl to dance with. Rowley has spoiled his day. Greg is always silly and makes me laugh.

    This is about the school dance.

    I read lots of Diary of a Wimpy Kid books before but this one grabbed my attention it was really special because Greg has a Valentine Day Dance at school but doesn’t know who to ask to the dance. Will Greg be lucky in love? He doesn’t know if he should ask he is really stressed about this! I think you should read it if you want to find out more.
