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.

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!

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.

Its okay.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

yes. The kids enjoyed it.

How could the performance have been better?

The reader sounded to old which made it hard for the kids to listen to it at first. Ramon is not a bad reader, just not right for this book. He made them prefer the written version.

Do you think The Third Wheel needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes the kids like characters they can identify with.
