Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-6–Peirce's second book about Big Nate is clever and funny. For Mrs. Godfrey's newest special project, a research assignment on a great American, the sixth grader gets paired with the perfect A-plus student, Gina. Horrible as this seems, something great also occurs–Nate is picked as a Fleeceball team captain and has a chance to win the coveted Spoffy (Sports Played Only for Fun) trophy. Unfortunately, he is late to the gym when players are chosen, and Gina is on his team. The pacing of the text and the black-and-white comic-book illustrations give the story a fun and carefree rhythm. Readers will be delighted to pick this up and find great characters who will stay with them.–Patty Saidenberg, George Jackson Academy, New York City. (c) Copyright 2010.

From Booklist

Peirce�s mischievous grade-school hero returns for more misadventures in another blend of easy-reading narrative and comic-strip snippets modeled after the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. In an unbelievable double stroke of bad luck, Nate gets paired with the insufferable brainiac Gina on a class project and stuck with her on his otherwise championship-worthy fleeceball (indoor baseball) team. Lessons are learned and comeuppances are delivered on both sides. This is a hearty dose of low-fiber fun for boys, and Peirce�s cartoon tidbits make the pages fly past with punch lines galore. Grades 3-6. --Ian Chipman

Book Review for [...]

I love the idea of mixing the art of comics inside a book to get kids reading. Diary of a Wimpy Kid has done that and Big Nate is also formatted in a similar way.

Big Nate is a middle school student who gets into enough trouble to create interest but not so much as you wonder what in the world he's thinking. He has two buddies that are along for a laugh and often at his expense. And guess what? There is some girl trouble that keeps the story interesting. The girl in this story happens to be Gina, his archenemy. The two get paired up for a report on Ben Franklin, and that part of the story truly delivers a bit of educational content. But when they get paired up for a sports team Gina has the nerve to name the team without the okay from her team captain, Big Nate.

The second book is easy enough to pick up even if you've missed the first book and it is geared for those on a 2nd to 5th grade reading level. The plot isn't heavy. It's not something that you'll learn great life lessons from. What it does, and does well, is gets kids reading who might not normally be into reading. The change from text to comic so often keeps the reader interested and moves the story along with the visual clues that some kids need when reading at this level. Don't think this one is just for boys either. My eight year-old daughter saw the book arrive and immediately offered to do the book review for me. She's next to read it!

This is a good book. I like the way that both Nate and Gina get what they got. They each got something good- Nate got a good grade on the Benjamin Franklin 'thing' and Gina got the spoffy. And it all evens out in the end. You wish to know the highlights? All right, I shall name them. One, Nate wakes up from a nightmare (or is it a different book?). So then he goes to school when he finds out they are doing a research project on a great American. So then he at first got paired up with Megan. But she was getting her tonsils removed that day. So then he got paired up with Gina, one of the people Nate hates (along with Mrs. Godfrey. And Arthur.). So then it turns out they are going Benjamin Franklin. Then Nate goes home and then tomorrow he finds out he is a fleeceball captain (indoor baseball). So Nate gets really pumped up. So then he decides to name his team the Pysho Dogs. He likes that name! He tells the guys about it and they like the idea too. But then he forgot to give the name to their coach and Gina ends up giving the name Kuddle Kittins. Pathetic, right? That makes no team hard to the bone. Then the guys find out about it. They are not happy. So then Nate plans to give Gina a 'treat': he was going to dump egg salad on her head but it backfires. He does it on Jenny instead. FYI, Jenny is Nate's love magnet ( not really: she was going out with Arthur.). So then it gets all bad. What happens next? Will Nate have a good ending, or not? Find out! I'm Stephanie Cotton, by the way. I live in Willistion, Vermont. Nice to see all your reviews! They are really nice. Well, happy reading, all you Big Nate fans out
There! Have the best time ever reading this book!

A Kid's Review on June 18, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Big Nate Strikes Again is a book about Nate, Gina, Francis, Teddy, and Randy. Nate is on a Fleece ball team with Gina, but she is ruining it. Will Nate ever win the championship? Will Gina improve?

Big Nate Strikes Again is very funny. Read this book if you need a big smile and laugh.

This book is very long and very cool. It has comics, graphs, stats, and games.
And guess what I don't like about this book? NOTHING! I like everything inside the book from the beginning to the end!

Read every SINGLE WORD inside this book! Do not miss any word! (from a seven years old)

I received an Advance Reader's Copy of Big Nate Strikes Again by Lincoln Pierce. I did not receive any compensation for reviewing this book.

Kids who love Greg Hefley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid are going to love Nate Wright. Parents will probably like Nate better.

Based on the comic strip "Big Nate" this series details the trials and tribulations of 6th grader Nate Wright. Nate finally has a chance to win the coveted SPOFFY Trophy (Sports Played Only For Fun). He's been selected as a team captain for fleeceball - an indoor version of baseball. But nothing ever goes smoothly. Kept after school by a teacher, Nate is unable to make it to the meeting to pick his team. He lucks out and his best friends Teddy and Francis are on the team, but so is his archenemy - A+ know it all Gina! Not only does he have to put up with Gina on his fleeceball team, he's paired with her on a social studies project. Can things get any worse or more hilarious?

The humor in this book is definitively age appropriate. As an elementary librarian I spend a good deal of time around young children. The humor is right on target, but it's not so obnoxious (as some kid like humor - Captain Underpants for example - can be) that adults will not enjoy it as well. I love Jeff Kinney and his Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. But lets be honest, I think I like Nate better. (Don't worry I'll still anxiously await any new Wimpy Kid books.) Nate is one of those likeable characters. Always up to something, but so charming you can't help but like him. If you work in a school, you know what I'm talking about.

As I mentioned in the beginning, I received an Advanced Readers' Copy of this book.
