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.

Well, another Big Nate book! They are all very fun, I must say. It's very funny at the best of times. You wish to know what happens? Ok, I'll give you the highlights.... It all starts with Nate and his gang of friends at their normal school, P.S. 38. They are all fine when THIS hapoens- "the school has something weird going on! You will have to go home! We will find you a new school!" (OK, it's not exactly what Principal Nicholes said. But it's CLOSE!) So, then everyone heads home. Buses. Cars. Trucks. Then it turns out that they are going to Jefferson, their arch-rivil. Then the gang of friends are really bummed. But they discover alot of cool things there. Sensing mothers for the water fountains, a place to have out during free periods, auditorium sets that recline. Then there is a basketball game within the two schools. Jefferson won, 129 to 43. Wow. That is amazing. So then P.S. 38 to a snow sculpture contest. Oh, did I mention that Chad hurt his tailbone and there is this person named Nolan that keeps on Harrising (how DO you spell it, anyway?)? Maybe I didn't. Well that does happen. So then at some point Dee Dee says to the gang- "they have an Achilles' heel!" What do as THAT mean? The rest of the gang is a bit confused. So Nate decides to ask his sister, Ellen. She gives him a report on Achilles. This is what is means- " when people say you have an Achilles heel, you have a little weekness that could cause you BIG trouble." that's cool, right? So then the snow sculpture contest comes. The P.S. 38 school makes an Achilles snow sculpture, whereas the Jefferson school covers a knight. That's there Achilles's heel! Cool, right? So then the P.S. 38 school wins the contest. Oh! I almost forgot. Nate hurts his right wrist. Ow.Read more ›

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

My son has several of the Big Nate collection, and he was begging for this one - has carried it everywhere ever since he got it for Easter. Takes it to school so he can show it to his friends on the bus and in class. They all seem to enjoy this author's writing style - very funny approach to the things boys experience or day dream about as kids - embarrassing situations, annoying kids at school, "mean" teachers and parents, etc, but they're all written about in a fun way, not in true negativity or disrespect - I think most kids "get it" when it comes to the enjoyment the author wants to evoke.

This book was nice because you could kinda see yourself in those pages. In this book had been longer I would've rated it a 5
but since it was short it'll only get a 3 :(
Other than that the book was great. I'd recommend this book for kids in the 8-12 range. Over all a good book :D

It was another amazing story by Lincoln Peirce! This a story that would be amusing for all ages. Big Nate Goes For Broke is a great book for both comedy and inspiration.

Over all a great book!
