Editorial Reviews

Review

"…In addition to the graphic storytelling, Nate’s cartoons interspersed among Peirce’s panels could provide teachers and librarians with great opportunities to incorporate this series into programs or lessons on cartooning and writing.” (Snow Wildsmith, Booklist)

“…if you’re looking for a new series to introduce your kids to this upcoming holiday season, chances are they’ll really like these collections.” (Rich Johnston, Bleeding Cool)

“Big Nate is super funny. I love these books.” (Appeal-Democrat)

Format: Paperback
I am a young teen who recently read this book and loved it! I read it over and over again as it never gets old. I also colored in the pictures. Although this book is pretty fun there is some not necessarily violent but some slightly mean humor. It has a slight bad message on account that the main character is a school drop-out and a rebel. He is always getting in trouble and detention. This book is pretty good but can never top the funny diary of a wimpy kid series. Even most diary of a wimpy kid books are more innocent then big Nate. Personally I don't think this book can cause any damage to young minds but note that I have seen books with much more intelligent humor with a better message.

I keep on the lookout for books to feed to my ten year old son, who I am attempting to instill a self-motivated drive for reading. I have witnessed him reading this book (and the other Big Nate books) on his own. He recently started reading aloud to me from Big Nate books as bedtime reading (it used to be just me reading to him). Anyway, the content seems funny enough for my preteen boy that he reads on his own, and that works for me.

My 8 year old has read and loved the Diary of a Whimpy Kid books and the Captain Underpants books. He was thrilled when I got him the Big Nate books. He's read them all and can't wait for the next one!

This book, marketed for children, is appalling, at best. I bought it for my classroom, read it, and will now get rid of it because of the trashy, inappropriate messages it contains. Containing words such as "sexy" and ideas such as "girls like bad boys," etc. it should be geared towards adults. Young boys do not need to have these ideas reinforced, especially through a cartoon-type book that draws them in with a colorful cover and engaging illustrations. I would not recommend this book for anyone but adults.

My nine year old son, is a great reader, but gets bored easy with books. He loved this book and read it in one day. Good book if your kids like diary of a wimpy kid series as well.

Format: Paperback
The Big Nate books follow eleven-year-old, sixth grader Nate Wright. He might not do well in school and he spends a lot of time in detention, but Nate's a bright kid. He just can't seem to keep his mouth shut and says the wrong thing. He also thinks very highly of himself. BIG NATE FROM THE TOP finds Nate up to his usual antics including dealing with teachers, bad cafeteria food, the class bully, and soccer practices. In addition, in BIG NATE FROM THE TOP Nate's relationship with the local meteorologist is examined, he explores the limits of the concept of "dibs", and attempts to find stolen money from a friend's locker by dressing up as Sherlock Holmes.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the third book I have read about Nate and his adventures. This is a funny and entertaining series. It has appeal for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and parents will feel better about Nate than they do Greg. Nate is a lovable and redeeming character. I like Greg Hefley, but as a parent, he is certainly not someone I would want my child to hang out with.

A must for any library's graphic novel collection.
Recommended for 3rd Grade and up.

Mrs. Archer's rating: 5 of 5.
