Transcript of ESL3 -- Diary of a Wimpy Kid 7: the Third Wheel -- Grade 9

THE THIRD WHEEL
Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series
We are going to talk about this book today.
There are seven books in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and two additional books: the Wimpy Kid Movie Diary.
The series started off online on Funbrain.com in 2004 and made its print debut in April of 2007. There are now more than 75 million copies of Diary of a Wimpy Kid books in print in 41 different languages.

The hysterically funny, best-selling book comes to life in this smash-hit family comedy! Greg Heffley is headed for big things, but first he has to survive the scariest, most humiliating experience of any kid’s life – middle school! That won’t be easy, considering he’s surrounded by hairy-freckled morons, wedgie-loving bullies and a moldy slice of cheese with nuclear cooties!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
--Rodrick Rules
Greg Heffley, the kid who made “wimpy” cool, is back in this sidesplitting sequel based on the second installment of the best-selling book series! Having rid himself of the Cheese Touch , Greg enters the next grade with his confidence and friendships intact, and an eye on the new girl in town, Holly Hills . But at home, Greg is still at war with his older brother, Rodrick, so their parents have handed down the toughest “punishment” imaginable – forcing the boys to spend quality time with each other.
Everybody's favorite wimp, Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon), is back for three times the fun in the lastest film based on the super-popular book series! When Greg's dad (Steve Zahn) threatens to send him to military school if he didn't stay out of trouble, Greg finds all-new ways to land himself in the doghouse! For starters, Greg’s in over his head when he pretends to work at the swanky country club where Rowley’s family has a membership. Things don’t go much better on a father-son camping trip with the Wilderness Explorers, and then there’s the Heffley’s new dog, Sweetie, who fetches even more trouble for Greg in this hilarious family film!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid 7: the Third Wheel
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 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 boy out. But the dance destroyed by a bunch of old seniors and the chicken pox. Rowley and Greg's dancing partner became a couple. After the dance, Greg got chicken pox, and have to stay at home for a while.
In the movie, Rowley is an overweight boy with long bowl shaped hair that is orange and is wider than Greg's.
The thing that most impressed me is Rowley is also the owner of the comic strip Zoo Wee Mama, which was originally Greg's idea, and they both worked on it. However, Greg gives up to start his own comic strip, and hands Zoo Wee Mama to Rowley, and it becomes a success.

COMMENT
T-T:

There are many series of books similar as the "Diary of Wimpy Kid". One of them is "Dork Diaries" series, also a kind of popular kids' read.
T-W:
Greg's stories did not just happen in the book, sometimes they also happen in the real life. Someone have done something and try to make themselves have a good look, or to be cool. Unfortunately, they are just making things get worse.
I like this book pretty much and I think it is more inte
resti
ng than other books of this series. The story was funny,
and
there's a big twist: Greg's BFF, Rowley Jefferson got a girlfriend, and the girl was Greg's dancing partner... I'
m
wondering how Greg going to be get through this whe
n he
gets back to school.
This book is a fiction one. Jeff Kinney wrot
e it
as a Diary form and added lots of creative draw
ing
pictures. The "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series
coul
d be call as a comic or a diary. All books in this s
eries
are 217 pages long. The pace of the story goes f
ast.
T-S:

Just like Greg, I've done something and try to make things look better, but they are just making me get more troubles.
T-W 2:

There are bullies happening in some schools, just like some stories happened in this book. Some weaker or shorter kids always picked on.

T-S 2
: When I was young, I never end up anything like I imagined it should be, so I predict the things much worse than it supposes to be, so if I really end up the thing very terrible, I will not be so disappointed.
I think this book is full of humors. I fel
t ve
ry relax while I was reading this Series. And I
also
learned many children's language by readin
g it
. In addition, every page has a picture of what
is
happening in that page, and it might help
us to
have a good understanding.

The author wrote the book for kids to hav

What I learned from this book is that, no matter
