Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lincoln Peirce is one of my cartooning heroes, and BIG NATE ranks as a comics classic. Year in and year out, Big Nate is among the best comics on the funny page." Jeff Kinney, author of 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Big Nate is going for broke!

Mighty Jefferson Middle School always wins. Then Nate decides it's time to go from zeroes to heroes! Will Nate crack under the pressure of the "Ultimate Snowdown"? Or lead P.S. 38 to its biggest victory ever?

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.

Good story but I didn't get the idea of the story I mean one part is hating Jefferson then it's the characters finding the weakness.... Good book for ages 8-11
