Along the way, Nate and his pals are joined by Artur, the gentle exchange student who's popular with almost everyone. And don't forget Gina, the teacher's pet who gets an "A" for annoying. They're all here in this collection of cartoons, featuring highlights from Nate's most hilarious adventures.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This Big Nate adventure...brings to life Nate's funny mis-adventures using a black and white cartoon format that will especially lure non-readers. The result is a recommendation for any collection that looks for the cartoon format paired with a series of lively stories accessible to grades 3-4." (Midwest Book Review)

"Big Nate and Friends is a delight to read for all ages, and makes an excellent giftbook for kids, parents, or anyone with a sense of humor." (Midwest Book Review: The Comix/Graphic Novel Shelf)

“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)

Children's Literature - Karen McCoy
This book is comprised of a series of vignettes that provide a glimpse into Nate's interactions with his friends at school and in the neighborhood. Nate's intentions are usually misguided, and his plans often backfire. When he is not drawing comics, giving wedgies, or eating cheez doodles, he usually finds himself in various kinds of trouble—and often ends up in detention. Nate thinks he knows best, but his friends aren't afraid to keep him in line when his schemes stretch out of bounds—including when they play baseball, basketball, or monopoly, and especially when he tries to convince them to brainstorm a nickname for him. Bookish Francis bests him at most things, but does not hold it over Nate's head (unless Nate insults him first). When Nate joins a peer counselor program, he has no concept of what his role might be—but even though he does not learn what his facilitator intends, his efforts offer a good example for students looking to resolve conflict among themselves. Though some parents may be put off by Nate's antics, and some of his motivations do not always ring true, children will appreciate the relatable dialogue (especially in Nate's rants against teachers). Fans of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series and followers of the original "Big Nate" comic strip (first published in 1991) will likely enjoy this newest installment. Reviewer: Karen McCoy

I was excited to try out my new nook along with one of my favorite authors. It was bad because it kept getting stuck on page five. And it only had eleven pages! I want my money back.
