Editorial Reviews

Jeff Kinney
“Big Nate is funny, big time.”
Booklist
Praise for BIG NATE: IN A CLASS BY HIMSELF: “Nate’s persistent good cheer and moxie make him a likeable new proxy for young misfits.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
Praise for BIG NATE: IN A CLASS BY HIMSELF: “What carries the day are the zany illustrations and unflagging enthusiasm of Nate himself.”
The Horn Book
“Even the most jaded middle-schooler will find much to laugh about here.”
Children's Literature - Katie Worthy
Nate is the messiest, most disorganized kid at P.S. 38. His sloppiness keeps getting him into trouble at school and eventually into a fight with his best friend, Francis. This quirky sixth grader must find a way to repair his friendship with Francis. Through a creative, resourceful, and somewhat silly way, Nate’s sloppiness disappears. Suddenly, all of his teachers love him; he becomes an A student with no detentions; and his locker is perfectly tidy. Although now neat, Nate becomes unhappy and Francis still refuses to talk to him. To make things right with Francis, Nate stands up for his friends, catches a thief, and challenges the school bully. Filled with comic relief comic relief, the book shows readers that it is okay to laugh at yourself and at others. Nate also shows children that being mischievous can get them into trouble, but that they should always stand up for what is right. The words throughout the text come alive with comic drawings, mostly done by Nate. This book has similar dynamics to Diary of a Wimpy Kid, in which the narrator/protagonist tells his own story through both narrative and black-and-white sketches. Codes throughout the book allow kids to engage and become involved more deeply with the story. This book, part of the “Big Nate” series, would be appropriate for middle readers. Reviewer: Katie Worthy; Ages 8 to 12.
