During the Bologna Book Fair in March, Amulet Books announced the publication of a seventh Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, and now that book has a title and a cover. The Third Wheel will go on sale November 13 with a first printing of more than 6.5 million copies. “Writing The Third Wheel has been a lot of fun because there’s so much humor to be mined in the world of middle school romance,” said author Jeff Kinney in a statement. “When the dust settles at the end of the seventh book, the Wimpy universe will be changed in a way that will surprise fans of the series.”
Abrams will promote the book during BookExpo America next week, and Kinney will be on hand at the show on Wednesday to sign copies of the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid calendar. In other Wimpy Kid news, the third film based on the books, Dog Days, will arrive in theaters on August 3.
