Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Big Nate is an absolute favorite of kids because they can identify with him in some areas. Nate has such problems in middle school, most of which he creates himself. Nate is in Middle School so there is humor in the book that is not always my favorite. For example, he definitely insults others and goes as far as writing a haiku about a teacher of his, whom he does not like. He refers to her as a "Bloated Obscenity." In this particular story, Nate actually plays chess (or does he?). He runs for class treasurer, and also creates so much disturbance that he practically lives in detention. Even though throughout the entire books he is getting into mischief, somehow he still passes. The last day of school is Prank Day (and believe me), Nate has a Master's Degree in this area. He actually had his backpack filled with items for pranks, but luckily his father found them. The story line is good and the book covers an entire school year. The illustrations are absolutely fantastic and add much to the humor throughout the book. The humor does portray, in some areas, what does happen in middle school today. Kids are going to enjoy this book from cover to cover and will talk about it with friends. This is definitely a boy's book. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
