We here at Blue Manatee could not be more excited about Diary of a Wimpy Kid series creator Jeff Kinney’s latest book Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel. The seventh book in the series will be released on November 13th and finds Greg and Rowley facing the panic and fear of getting a date for the middle school dance. By chance, Greg finds himself with a date for the big night, and Rowley is left as the third wheel…but who knows how the night will end? I know I can’t wait to find out! I may be a girl, and so I did not have to be the one doing the asking, but I remember those middle school dances, and trust me guys—the girls are just as nervous. I think that’s why we all love everyone’s favorite wimpy kids so much!
Perhaps you may have heard our even more exciting news? Jeff Kinney will be joining us at the store for a signing of his latest book on Saturday, November 17 from 4:30-5:30 pm. Sadly, but not surprisingly, the 100 line numbers for the signing have been claimed…they flew out of our hands in a wimpy kid frenzy. But don’t lose heart yet. Blue Manatee is offering a Wimpy Kid Third Wheel Contest where we will raffle off a free copy of the book AND a line number for the signing on Nov. 17!
“What!? How do I enter!?” I hear you all shouting with excitement. Well it’s easy. Any child can enter by submitting a picture in the style of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid comic drawings. Your picture should welcome Jeff Kinney to Blue Manatee and Cincinnati with a not so wimpy greeting in the caption. This is your chance to show your love for Greg and the gang while showing off your talent for drawing. We will post your drawings on our blog and all submissions will be entered in the raffle!
