Review

 "What can I say? Nate has done it again! The author continues to show us the world from the viewpoint of a ten-year-old child, in a very well done way."- Rute Canhoto, Author

"Nate Rocks The Boat is a fantastic tale filled with adventure, action and, most importantly, imagination. The "Nate Rocks" series recognizes that it is alright to be different. It also shows the pressure that most kids go through. It is difficult to find books that interest boys but this one is sure to pique their interest. I suggest giving your favorite fourth grader a copy of "Nate Rocks The Boat" and sit back and listen for the giggles." - Anne Billings for Readers Favorite

Nate is back in the sequel to Nate Rocks the World, in which he is not looking forward to spending the summer at Camp Spring Ridge, as Nate is more of dreamer than an outdoor kid, but he changes his mind when he finds out his best friend Tommy is going to camp too. He thinks that maybe this summer will be great, that is until he learns that his annoying older sister, Abby, is going to the camp too.

He has big dreams about the camp, such as eating great food (well better than his mother's cooking), and meeting new friends, but dreams are just dreams as he realizes that camp isn't exactly what he hoped it would be.

Nate has a hard time fitting in with the other kids. The activities are not what he hoped for as he would rather take out his sketchpad and draw than participate in the silly scavenger hunt. The campers are split into teams and they have to compete in an annual competition, which places Nate against Abby.

If you have never read Nate Rocks the World, do not worry as Nate Rocks the Boat is more of a standalone read. The book is aimed at middle grade readers, but adults can enjoy reading it too. The narration reminds me of the Fudge book series by Judy Blume. I like how the author, Kim Pokras Toz, used humor throughout the tale. Nate has a wild imagination from helping out the FBI to saving the camp from snakes. Nate Rocks the Boat is fun read for readers of all ages.

*I would like to thank Goddess Fish Book Tours for providing me with a review copy!

Format: Paperback
Welcome to a new adventure with Nate Rocks! In this book, we may get less of Nate Rocks' adventures and more of Nate's adventures, but, this does not make the book any less fun and interesting. I was really happy to see Nate in action. Seeing him living in the real world, and less in the adventures he creates was wonderful!

This book is perfectly created for the MG reader. In this book, Nate is going to summer camp. I remember the time I dreaded to go on one sponsored by my school. I dreaded being away at a new place, among new kids, and having to adjust to a completely new environment. I dreaded the fact that I would not be accepted, would have to face bullies and I would end up doing something stupid or dangerous. Nate also has to face all these things. But, add to it the fact that is elder sister is going to the same camp, and it gets a whole lot worse. The only solace is that he has his best friend along with him. I can imagine, and somewhat remember going through the same problems that Nate does in this book. Every kid wants to be accepted in school and at camp. Most boys, including me, who have an elder sister feel that their sisters are out to get them. Also, we have all been bullied by someone at some point when we are that age (well almost everyone).

I liked all the small details which the author adds to help create the perfect image of every scene in the book. The car ride to the camp, the arrival, the departure of the parents, meeting other boys in the camp, the really hyper camp supervisor, and all the activities at camp all seemed to come to life in the book. It was like I was right there, alongside Nate, experiencing each and every up and down he was going through. And, I enjoyed every minute!

I did miss the consistent banter between Nate and Lisa.

Nate Rocks is back and better than ever! Author Karen Pokras Toz sticks with a formula that works in her sequel Nate Rocks the Boat. With her flare for description Toz gives us the heebie jeebies at a slithering rattle snake about to strike, makes us laugh out loud at an over zealous camp counselor, and snicker behind our hand when Nate takes a horse shoe to the face in a backyard game gone wrong. But in the end we learn that thanks to his active imagination and clever thinking Nate truly does rock! This is a must have for the young readers in your life!

I bought the Nate Rocks books to read with my children. They loved this book! Having never been to camp, everything was a new experience for them right along with Nate. Their favorite part was the ending, and finding out the true identity of The Bobino. Once again, Nate Rocks and saves the day! We have already started the next book in the series and we all hope that Karen Pokras Toz keeps writing these adventures! My kids will surely be re-reading them for a long while.

Format: Paperback
There isn't much that Nathan Rockledge, aka Nate Rocks, can't do, as long as it's on paper or in his imagination. Actually, Nathan is a pretty resourceful young man. Things may not always work out quite as spectacularly as they do in his daydreams but in a pinch Nate really does rock! But can he handle summer camp, No-Neck and worst of all, his older sister, Abby?

In the sequel to Nate Rocks the World, Nathan is taking on a new adventure that is both exciting and pretty darn scary for someone who isn't particularly fond of being stuck in the woods or being forced to compete against his annoying sister. But from reading book one I knew that Nathan wasn't a quitter and having his best friend, Tommy, along was going to make this whole ordeal a whole lot of fun to watch. Ms. Toz did not disappoint. I did kinda miss the verbal sparing Nathan had with Lisa from book one but there are plenty of new characters introduced at Camp Spring Ridge to fill in the void.

Readers who enjoy the narrative style of Judy Blume will appreciate the youthful voice that comes through in the dialogue. There aren't just a whole lot of really good books out for middle grade boys that are written where they can relate to the worries and angst of 8 or 10 year old younger siblings. Something else I think young readers will appreciate is the descriptive details interwoven throughout the story. I had no trouble picturing the camp, the games or the final adventure.

Speaking of the final adventure, I couldn't have asked for a better ending. Ms. Toz weaves in a "moral to the story" sequence of events that will make parents happy to let their kids read these books.
