At Greg's house in his room, Uncle Gary played a future game when you are an adult, but Uncle Gary downloads scratch tickets. Javan Hill found that Pillow Soft Ultra toilet paper was being used by the teachers, not the kids.
So Eugene went to the lounge and showed Mrs. The school introduces a program where students can bring in their own toilet paper. However, the plan backfired when some of the boys started a toilet paper fight in the cafeteria. The school then set a rule that kids are only allowed to have five squares of toilet paper, much to Greg's dismay because he brought in twenty rolls. Now that the staff is checking peoples' bags and lockers to see if they had more than five, Greg decided to have his own bathroom stall to keep all of the toilet paper, but that backfired when people founded out that Greg was hoarding toilet paper.
After this whole toilet paper experience, students learned that they are going to raise money of their own if they want something.

Dec 31, Jaylia3 rated it really liked it Shelves: I pretend to download these books for my students, but the truth is I can't resist the humor myself. Dec 08, Prashant rated it really liked it Shelves: I won't lie about the fact that I was very excited to read this book.
It's mostly because - the first 5 books' box set lived right on my desk close to bed till I finished them all - I ordered and read the 6th book as soon as I finished the set So how is this latest installment?
As with almost all the series consider Potter as an exception this is not as good and fun as the initial ones. Gregory is still faltering at different levels and his filial love is still on tenterhooks.
But again the exper I won't lie about the fact that I was very excited to read this book. But again the experiences are new. The comfort and warmth that one expects from a known avenue, a tested formula and a familiar writing style is still there.
Gregory has started to look at girls with an adolescent's perspective and the incidents may make you reminiscent. The goof-ups are still funny and at times one is forced to think of the older days when mistakes were pardonable and there was nothing like a blunder.
If this book has craved me to read more about the wimpy kid and to wait for the next installment, that's thumps up from my side. That will remain till the book doesn't loose the innocence that has carried it all this way. View all 5 comments. Oct 24, Dylan S added it. The Third Wheel by Jeff Kinney.
This book is hilarious and romantic all at the same time. It starts out In an ordinary life in middle school and then to really gets to the point. Greg the main character has been trying to work up the nerve to ask out his biggest crush Holly Hills to the dance, but Greg's WAY to nervous to ask her out and the only problem is Kinney really does a good job describing characters and really putting things in Greg's point of view.
I don't think that I can really relate to Greg because well, he's a wimp and is always getting in trouble. I think that if you read this book your probably going to want to watch the movies also because then you can almost picture the book in your mind. This book is great because it has humor, suspense and its just entertaining. Once you start reading you can't stop! That's just.
What happen to me. Jan 08, 07Marcus Bishop added it Shelves: Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury: However, there were areas in this book that were not quite as good at giving an ending or a reasonable ending to all of the sub-plots. Narrated by a first-person narrator, Greg Hefley is a Junior High School student who is having some trouble with love. My first example is about Greg and his family going to a restaurant. One of the waiters at the restaurant came over with a big pair of scissors and cut the tie off.
As you can see from this example, we know what happens to Dad because we read earlier that all the ties that are cut off go on the wall of shame, thus explaining a reasonable ending to a sub-plot. My next example will be about the story of the mad panster. It all began when one kid pants another kid in gym class. Pretty soon everyone started pantsing each other. No one knew who did pants Vice Principal Roy, but they call him the mad pantser. This is an example of not giving a reasonable explanation ending to all the sub-plots.
I think the intended audience for this book is for people who like to laugh a lot, because of the entire miss haps that Greg keeps getting himself into. I would recommend this book to anyone because this book probably has a wider audience to reach out to.
This is why I like this book. Apr 08, Nana S. It is the seventh book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. The problem is that he cant find anyone to go with him. The whole time as he rushes to find someone to go to the dance with him he's worried he'll be left out on the big night.
When I first read this book I was disappointed because it wasn't as funny or good as the the other book in the series. Also sometimes the author goes off topic and starts talking about something that really has nothing to do with the main idea of the story which is Greg needs to find someone to the Valentine's Dance with him.
One example is in the beginning of the story it starts talking about when Greg's mom is still pregnant with him and all the ups and downs of it. I don't see how that has anything to do with the main idea. It wasn't even funny. Overall I'd say that this was an okay book and I would give it 3 stars but I wouldn't recommend it. One thing I can relate to is that in the story there's this restaurant called Corney's and it's always crowded there. It reminds me of the time I went Golden Corral not one one of my favorite restaurants and it was so crowded we had to leave and go somewhere else.
This one was actually pretty funny. It was fun to see Greg grow up, but still have the same hilarious adventures with Rowley and the gang from Greg's middle school. I would give it four stars because it was really funny and an easy read. I mean as far as comic books go. I can't say it's a very good book but in it's own field, this one was another prize winner by Jeff Kinney.

Sep 14, Josiah rated it did not like it. Diary of a Wimpy Kid is respected for two main reasons: After a bit of a lull in the previous few books, Jeff Kinney returns to comedic form in The Third Wheel , presenting some of his best jokes since the early entries in the series.
The little kid at church who pretends he's a vampire, and convinces Greg's three-year-old brother Manny it's true? The picture book that Greg's mother wrote about Biting Bradley?
Both Diary of a Wimpy Kid is respected for two main reasons: Both classic moments. Greg's tribulation when he has to crawl through the toddlers' maze of play tubes at Corny's restaurant to retrieve Manny, who's too scared to come down on his own?
And then there's Uncle Gary and his nightmare about monkeys in the walls. The Third Wheel 's humor is top-notch, particularly for the first half of the book, and I appreciate Jeff Kinney's comedic insight. Ordinarily, Greg's house is large enough for the family's comfort, but not so much after Uncle Gary moves in temporarily. Uncle Gary doesn't mind being unemployed and not having his own place to live, but Greg's father isn't happy with the open-ended arrangement, and it gets on the rest of the family's nerves after a while, too.
But Greg is distracted from his troubles at home by the announcement of a school Valentine's Day dance that most of the girls are eager to see arrive. Their enthusiasm eventually spreads to the boys, but the imbalanced ratio of male to female students this school year is bad news for less popular guys who don't want to miss out on the fun.
Can Greg find a date for the dance? His search for the right girl launches a laugh-out-loud escapade for our favorite self-centered middle-schooler, leading Greg to wonder what he's not comprehending about the nature of the romance game. His plans are bound to go wrong before, during, and after the party, but will there be an opening for him to have a satisfactory ending with a girl he'd like to dance with?
Anything can happen at this Valentine's soiree, and likely will. The Third Wheel isn't as deep or cohesive as the best books in this series, but the humor saves it as a pleasant read with some of the most effective ideas for gags of the past several volumes. It's key that readers not go into these books expecting growth or positive change from Greg Heffley.
This isn't that type of series; Greg is a prop for the jokes assigned him, and so are the other characters. Diary of a Wimpy Kid novels are primarily stand-up comedy routines, not wise literature, and you'll have a fine time with them if you keep that in mind and don't expect more. I'd give The Third Wheel one and a half stars, but I almost rounded my rating up, and I enjoyed the read.
I've yet to go wrong with a Jeff Kinney book. Sep 28, Miguel rated it it was amazing.
I liked this book because I can really relate to the main character in the book. The setting of this book is in a school and in a few of the characters houses and in a gym. Greg wanted a date to the dance but no one likes him so he tries to do anything for a date. Greg is a kid that no one likes and he is in 7th grade.
He only has one true friend and his Name is rowely. The conflict is person vs person because Greg is trying to get a date to a school dance but many people are getting in his way by asking all the girls our that he wanted to.
The title relates to the book because Greg ends up being a third wheel when his friend rowley takes his date by accident and one his way home with the date and his friend his ex date does not talk to him all the way home. I was surprised when rowley ends up with Greg's date and gives Greg chicken poxs. In the book something else surprising happens when they are at the school dance, a hored of gramps and grams came into the school gym and told them that they need to get out but they dived the gym and they need to lower their music so they did not have a good night.
I give this a 5 star rating because I can relate to this character, I know what it feels like to only have one true friend. I recommend this book to my uncle because he loves diary of a wimpy kid. This book is for people who what to luahgt out lound This one started on a wrong note for me.
I mean how can Greg possibly know what was happening even before he was born. Yes, this kid is this plain presumptuous. Yes, he is always this kid who thinks he is too smart and make his life the best but yes, everything just backfires real bad. I cannot help cringing everytime he embarasses himself. That's the thing I like about this series. Jun 09, Megan rated it really liked it. Jeff Kinney, you rule! It's nice, but quite short. Excellent book. Book Review: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: What happened?
