Big Nate...one of the best comics ever known (you might not agree with me. But that's ok, right?). I have read lots of Big Nate and the end result is always good. There are also lots of biggies in this book...you wish to know? Alright, I shall. Get ready to know the things. 1, Nate gets in detention by Artur (Nate helps Artur with painting something. Doesn't end all that well.). 2 Nate's skateboard gets drowned in the river (Nate's skateboarding and he gets caught by a lady walking her dog. I mean, what's up with THAT?). 3, Nate then finds out Arthur's in the scout troop that Nate, Francis, Teddy, and others are in. Now before I start going chit-chat, Arturs Nate's archenamy (however you spell it.). So Nate basically hates (or dislikes, however you put it.) Arthur. So then he heads home and Francis comes with him (Artur was offering rides home, but Francis said no thanks.). Then Nate finds out they are doing a fundraiser with warm fuzzies (no idea what they are. Who cares anyway.). 4, Nate wants to know the prizes, but Francis has a guitar lesson. So then he has to go. But he says they are on the back of the buchore (whatever.). So then there is third. It is a robot that plays songs. Nah. Second. A telescope. No thanks. But then the GRAND prize. A make-your-own skateboard. Then Nate gets fired up. He wants to win that skateboard. So then he says he'll convince people to buy them. I could go on and on, but I don't want to spoil EVERYTHING. I hope you enjoyed this review about this Big Nate book. I hope you have a good time reading this book. Happy year and reading to all of you fellows! 😉 one more thing: who doesn't like

As a general rule, I pooh-pooh "graphic" novels. To me, that's a euphemism for comics (Archie, anyone?) and really, all kids should be reading LITERATURE!!! Enter in one of my twin boys. He's a "reluctant reader" who took to Nate. He begged me to read Nate. Months of procrastination later, I picked on up and was surprised to find that I thought the books were honestly funny and, so long as the parent discusses with the child the meaning of sarcasm, irony and sardonic wit (and how that's all great in a book but NOT GOOD in real life) then the books are not only harmless, but a solidly constructive step towards reading "real" books. I know, readers of my review will be appalled at my literary snobbery. What can I say. I am a wanna-be erudite.

So, for "reluctant" readers, especially boys, this would be a relatively benign choice (v. Wimpy Kid which I don't like as much). For any other child, this is a reasonable addition as a funny alternative to literature. These would be good on a family vacation when everyone relaxes with a book in the afternoon. I would say target age is from 7-10ish. My boys are 8 and 10 and loved them.

Our seven year old is obsessed with this series. He spends his allowance money on them. He received four more for Christmas, and is receiving a reading award in his class next week. He will ask to go to bed 30 minutes early just so he can read. Needless to say, we are extremely pleased.

Well, this book was funny, as all Big Nate books are. It's just that all of them are just repetitive. Nate has a rivalry with Artur, and he tries to attract Jenny, and Artur is getting the best of him. This is a good book to read if you are bored. It is fun to pick up and read, but it is short and you already know what is going to happen. So overall, I'd say it's a three star.

We bought this book, along with Big Nate Goes for Broke for our grandson's 11th birthday. We knew he likes Big Nate, but I didn't really expect him to read the books in about 2 days each. I know when I read a book that quickly, it means I really enjoyed the book, so I wasn't surprised when he said how much he enjoyed them and how much he wished he had a few more Big Nate books to read.

My son loves his Big Nate books. Engaging and fun for a kid who is not all that fond of reading! Looking forward to more Big Nate adventures.

My 9 year old LOVES the Big Nate books & now collects them! I'm excited that he comes home from school and wants to read instead of play video games & will continue to order these books for him! They even have these in the school library as approved reading material for his age & grade, so I I know they're GOOD books!
