Editorial Reviews

Review

“Nate’s persistent good cheer and moxie make him a likeable new proxy for young misfits.” (Booklist)

“Laugh-out-loud” (School Library Journal)

“Though Nate may not achieve the fame he seeks with his classmates, this sharp-witted and unflappable protagonist just might find it with readers.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or of Nate himself will savor P.S. 38’s most beleaguered hero.What carries the day are the zany illustrations and unflagging enthusiasm of Nate himself.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“Thank goodness sequels are planned!” (Kirkus)

“[T]he slickest of this series...On a roll indeed!” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Nate is often compared to Jeff Kinney’s Wimpy Kid and will appeal to the same audience, he bears more resemblance to the tricksters of folklore...the interplay between text and pictures remains fresh, as does the distinction between Peirce’s cartoons and Nate’s own cartoons.” (The Horn Book)

From the Back Cover

Big Nate is on a roll!

Nate’s a big deal in his scout troop . . . until Artur—aka Mr. Perfect—joins up. Now Nate’s stuck in second place. And Artur means business.

Will Nate take the grand prize? Or wipe out, big time?

A REVIEW BY ZACH of Madderly Review
Your Customer Rating: See Detailed Ratings

Nate is a boy who is a Timber Scout. This year the Timber Scouts are selling wall hangings. The grand prize for selling the most is a new skateboard. Nate wants to win the skateboard, but he has some competition. BIG NATE ON A ROLL is gut-busting fun for the whole family. I couldn't stop myself from laughing at the comics Nate drew about what was happening in his life. This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. I have loved reading books since I was four. Now I am an active nine, and for me to like a book it has to be a good one. This one was so good I read it twice!!!

As always, I love the Big Nate books. This one still gets 5 stars, even if it wasn't quite as wonderful as the first two. It didn't have as much of a moral to the story as the others had, but it was still a great read. I prefer it to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books as I like Nate better as a character. I have no problems recommending this to any child. The drawings and journal aspect make it easier to read for reluctant readers, and it really is funny!

My son just turned 8 years old/2nd Grade and LOVED this book. He read it in 24 Hours. He was so excited to read this book that he wanted to take it with him so he could read it to and from school. I think I like this character better than the Diary of Whimpy kids' books. Big Nate books will definitely be on his Christmas list as suggestions for others...
