Synopsis

Big Nate Goes for Broke by Lincoln Peirce

Big Nate is back in the fourth instalment of his own super-funny series. Big Nate is created by Lincoln Peirce, who inspired Jeff Kinney, author of 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'. When you've got a head the size of Big Nate's then losing is not an option. But Nate's school P.S. 38 gets beaten by arch-rivals Jefferson Middle School at EVERYTHING. Whether it's sports, maths or a snowball fight in the park, P.S. 38 just can't ever seem to win. So when their school springs a leak and they have to join forces with Jefferson for a while, Nate and his friends are mortified. What degrading loses must they face now? Or can Nate find something that P.S. 38 can actually win at?

Reviews

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'.
