Synopsis

Big Nate Out Loud by Lincoln Peirce

Big Nate, a.k.a. middle schooler Nate Wright, is eleven years old, four-and-a-half feet tall, and the wunderkind creation of cartoonist Lincoln Peirce. Nate is also the star of six novelized books to be published by HarperCollins, the first of which debuted on the New York Timeschildren's best-seller list. Big Nate Out Loudcollects Peirce's Big Nate strips, originally published only in newspapers and online at comics.com. For those not familiar with Big Nate, think Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Calvin and Hobbes. Nate is a self-described genius and a sixth-grade Renaissance man equipped with only a #2 pencil and the unshakable belief that he is destined for greatness (a fortune cookie told him so). He fights a daily battle against overzealous teachers, undercooked cafeteria food, and all-around conventionality. He's the original rebel without a clue, alternately abrasive and endearing to classmates and teachers alike. Throughout Peirce's Big Nate Out Loud, Nate blazes an unforgettable trail through the sixth grade, earning straight A's in laughs (and numerous detentions) along the way.

Reviews

Some kids want the fast-paced and artistic excitement of graphic novels and this one's excellent. It's funny and full of adventure. Any middle schooler will love this book. It's packed with humor. (Cerjio Vasques-Mejia, 7th grade, Atlanta Parent magazine) In addition to the graphic storytelling, Nate's cartoons interspersed among Peirce's panels could provide teachers and librarians with great opportunities to incorporate this series into programs or lessons on cartooning and writing. (Snow Wildsmith, Booklist) ...if you're looking for a new series to introduce your kids to this upcoming holiday season, chances are they'll really like these collections. (Rich Johnston, Bleeding Cool) Big Nate is super funny. I love these books. (Appeal-Democrat)
