I preordered this book for my son who has read the whole Big Nate series. He was anxiously awaiting its arrival on release day... as soon as he stepped off the bus he asked if I had the book! By this morning, he had almost finished the book and asked me to look online to see if I could preorder the new upcoming title!
My son is 8 and has enjoyed these books for a couple years and has reread them many times. He is an avid reader. If you have a relucant reader, these books many be appealing to spark an interest in reading.

This book is so awesome! My favorite part is the part when ps 28 bobcats win the "snowdown" and I like the doctor cesspool comic at the very end. Plus the graphics look kinda cute BTW, I go to a fancy pants school like Jefferson but that's because my school is only 3 years old and there's a school in west New York called ps 4 so I wonder if the author lives near there
