For fans of Jeff Kinney and Raina Telgemeier, here comes the second novel in the New York Times bestselling Big Nate series.
BIG NATE will surpass all others!
But it won’t be easy. He’s stuck with Gina, his all-time enemy, in a class project for his least favorite teacher Mrs. Godfrey, aka Godzilla. To make matters worse, Gina ALSO ends up on his fleeceball team, right when Nate is set to win his first fleeceball championship ever. This is his moment for glory, but Gina's sure to steal his thunder, or ruin everything.
Will Nate win or lose? Pass or fail? Or end up in detention . . . AGAIN?
Meet BIG NATE, self-described genius and definitely NOT the teacher’s pet in this comic-strip novel perfect for anyone who's ever been to middle school.
"Big Nate is funny, big time" —Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Star of a long-running comic strip, sixth-grader Nate Wright makes the leap to a cartoon-laden chapter book in the smart alecky vein of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Nate (who s not exactly Joe Honor Roll ) dissects the horrors of middle school, from vindictive teachers to the popular girls lunch table, aka Fort Knox ( You can try to get in, but you have no chance ). The wisp of a plot revolves around a fortune cookie that predicts, Today you will surpass all others, launching Nate into actions that indeed cause him to surpass all others with seven detentions. (His ill-conceived plans include speed-eating 148 servings of cafeteria green beans.) The book s appeal lies in Nate s wickedly astute observations and the savvy integration of cartoons with text. Angry teachers speech bubbles drip with icicles, and sidebars house humorous asides: When a teacher completely snaps and starts screaming, it s called a Full Godfrey. (When Mrs. Godfrey does it, it s called Monday). Though Nate may not achieve the fame he seeks with his classmates, this sharp-witted and unflappable protagonist just might find it with readers. Ages 8 12.
