Third Wheel is Great!

Great Book

:) Very funny and a GOOD book!

The only thing you should worry about is that Greg has been going on "dates" and his parents are kissing. The funny thing was the "mad pantser" and it was a LITTLE inaproppriate. Hiliarious, though. They pansted people. It was funny. I liked all of the book, and it was quite humoring.

they were about some of the others. Families can talk about embarrassing moments. Have you ever been embarrassed at school? What happened? What did you learn from it? How does Book 7 compare with the other Wimpy Kid books? What aspects of Greg's middle school experience seem realistic to you, and what is exaggerated?
