The Boy with the Biggest Head in the World by Lincoln Peirce


The Boy with the Biggest Head in the World by Lincoln Peirce

Meet classic comic-strip character Big Nate - The Boy with the Biggest Head in the World - as he stars in his own super-funny series. Big Nate is created by Lincoln Peirce, who inspired Jeff Kinney, author of 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'. Big-head Nate Wright truly believes he is destined for greatness! He's a table tennis champ, a genius comic book artist and the self-proclaimed king of his class. One school morning, Nate barely survives his Dad's toxic porridge before rushing off to school, forgetting his lunch. He thinks he has a test and he hasn't studied for it! Nate's class notes are full of doodles but sadly lacking any useful information...On the way to school he accidentally body slams his head teacher, then, during his first lesson of the day, he manages to insult his least favourite teacher, Mrs. Godfrey (aka Godzilla). But a little thing like having-the-worst-day-ever won't hold back The Boy with the Biggest Head in the World!


Lincoln Peirce is one of my cartooning heroes, and BIG NATE ranks as a comics classic. Year in and year out, Big Nate is among the best comics on the funny page. Jeff Kinney, author of 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'.
