Publisher's Summary

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.

Kids loved it!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Greg Heffley vividly describes life before birth! Hilarious!

What about Ramon de Ocampo’s performance did you like?

Loved hearing the words on the printed page come to life.

Any additional comments?

It is wonderful to follow along using the printed copy of the book. My young readers learn the fun of reading with great expression!

NOT what I thought...

What disappointed you about The Third Wheel?

This "book" was purchased for my 11 years old son who absolutely loves to read. I TRIED to purchase the Kindle BOOK, but due to technical difficulties (quality control issues) I was left with only the option of purchasing the Audible version. This was my first time purchasing an Audible, so I did not know what to expect. What I THOUGHT we would get was the Audible version in addition to the normal "printed" version. This was NOT the case. Not realizing that it was not included with the Audible version, we fumbled around trying to find the "printed" version. After our fruitless efforts paid no reward, my son was left with but one option, that of LISTENING to his new "book." Yes, he was VERY disappointed!

As for the book, my son loved it! He has READ and enjoyed all of the other books in this series. As an extra note, while we were in Walmart yesterday, my son found a copy of this same book and inquired of me if he might purchase it. When I reminded him that he had the Audible version, he stated, "Yes, I know. But I like to actually READ the book and look a the pictures." To me, this spoke volumes!

Audible is an excellent format and, I'm sure, fills a very necessary void for those who may be significantly visually impaired, making reading more of a frustration than an enjoyment. Had I realized that it did not include the printed version, I would not have made this purchase.

Download didn't work

What disappointed you about The Third Wheel?

Download didn't open. When I tried to download on a different computer it wouldn't allow me to download again. Wasted 10 bucks.

Kid approved

Any additional comments?

I'm going to write the same review for every one of these books in this series:

I can deal with the book, at times I chuckle... but mostly I just roll my eyes. My kid loves it and that's why we listen to it.
