Big Nate

Big Nate: In a Class by HimselfBig Nate: In a Class by Himself Lincoln Peirce

Nate knows his day will be awesome, because the fortune cookie told him "Today you will surpass all others." Only, in trying to find a way to surpass all others, all he does is manage to rack up the detention slips.

Half written, half illustrated (Nate fancies himself a cartoonist) it's definitely one for your Wimpy Kid fans. Very silly and funny it's not a book you need to sell that hard. If your kids aren't already clamoring for it (we can't keep it on the shelf) just show it to them (MAYBE you'll have to open a page) and they'll take it.

The action only follows 1 day, but it gets the highs and lows of junior high life pretty well and Nate, bless his heart, is a really likable guy, he just can't catch a break. (Although I can't fault most of his teachers for whipping out the detention slips!)

Good, silly fun, especially of the boy readers in your life.

My daughter loved this book! She got it at BEA last year and read the entire thing while standing in line over the course of our trip.

Just this week I handed the Big Nate books to a boy who's read all the Wimpy Kid books. :D
