StacksBookClubSTACKS Book Club: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel

It’s time again to get excited for the latest meeting of the STACKS Book Club. Our latest book is Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel by Jeff Kinney. This fantastic tale of grade school drama follows Greg Heffley as he tries to navigate the difficult world of dating. When Greg’s school announces it will hold a Valentine’s Day dance, Greg, along with the help of his best friend Rowley, must do everything he can to find a date. The Third Wheel is the seventh book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.


  • Aren’t Greg’s doodles the funniest parts of the story? What is your favorite sketch so far?
  • Greg grows up with such a wacky family. What member of Greg’s family is most similar to yours?
  • Learning dance in gym class sounds like so much fun! Who in the Greg’s school would you want to be your partner?
  • Wasn’t it hilarious watching Greg help Rowley run for student council? Who would you vote for, Greg or Rowley? And why?
  • Were you excited when they announced the Valentine’s Day Dance? What do you think will happen next?

    OK, my fav doodle is the one in which he’s going “SHHHHHHHH!” to everyone in the boys room! And Manny is exactly like my little sis! Oh, and I would want to go to the dance with Fregley. JUST KIDDING! I would totally go with Greg! I would vote Greg for student council too. Cuz I just feel so sorry for him! Poor guy:(! I was really excited when they announced the dance! I seriously thought Greg would end up with Ruby! ARGGHHH! That would be terrifying!

    Hey! I think Diary Of A Wimpy Kid is one of the best series out there! My favorite illustration is the one where Greg is wrapped in toilet paper. :P
