Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati J.D.
Big Nate is irresistible! His middle school adventures will get even the most down and out curmudgeon to smile, maybe even laugh out loud. Big Nate and his nemesis, Gina the genius, do battle throughout the book; Nate's big plan to interest Arthur in Gina backfires in an amusing way. Meanwhile, Nate schemes and fantasizes of sweeping his secret crush Jenny off her feet, but, alas, Jenny only has eyes for Arthur. Of course, Nate gets detention and makes us laugh about his "unfairly" being blamed for all sorts of catastrophes. His best friends Francis and Teddy often try to talk Nate out of his harebrained schemes, without much success. He's into scouting and skateboarding and being recognized for his awesomeness. Readers also get to meet Nate's hapless dad and "favorite" teachers. The cartoons and dialogue will hook readers in from the very start and keep them entertained until the end. This title is a must for Big Nate fans, and is sure to create a legion of fans among uninitiated readers. A great feature of being in Nate's fan club is that readers can find his adventures continuing in their daily news comic strips. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati, J.D.
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.”
The Horn Book
“Nate is often compared to Jeff Kinney’s Wimpy Kid and will appeal to the same audience, he bears more resemblance to the tricksters of folklore...the interplay between text and pictures remains fresh, as does the distinction between Peirce’s cartoons and Nate’s own cartoons.”
Horn Book Magazine
Praise for BIG NATE STRIKES AGAIN: “Even the most jaded middle-schooler will find much to laugh about here.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or of Nate himself will savor P.S. 38’s most beleaguered hero.What carries the day are the zany illustrations and unflagging enthusiasm of Nate himself."
Horn Book (starred review)
Praise for BIG NATE STRIKES AGAIN: “The millions of Wimpy Kid fans will be thrilled to find another cartoon buddy to read about, this good-hearted king of detention.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
Praise for BIG NATE: IN A CLASS BY HIMSELF: “Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or of Nate himself will savor P.S. 38’s most beleaguered hero. What carries the day are the zany illustrations and unflagging enthusiasm of Nate himself.”
School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—Big Nate is used to being the shining star of his scout troop, but now Artur-Mr. Perfect-is stealing his spotlight. Not only that, but it is Artur's fault that Nate has detention, and it is his fault that a certain obnoxious girl thinks Nate has a crush on her. The sixth grader is fed up and determined to show that he is better than Mr. Perfect by outselling Artur for the troop's fund-raiser. At stake is more than Nate's reputation-the winner also receives a new skateboard. This series is a great answer for kids looking for "Wimpy Kid" read-alikes, and Nate delivers the comic relief and action appealing to reluctant readers. The comic-strip illustrations throughout add to the fun. This book delivers what fans have come to expect.—Elizabeth Swistock, Jefferson Madison Regional Library, Charlottesville, VA

I read Big Nate On a Roll and I rated it five stars.It is new and the latest book of Big Nate.Nate starts to understand Artur more but he still gets on Nate's nerves when Artur is with Jenny who is Nate's girlfriend.Also Nate is a timber scout which is like a boy scout but it is a club.When Teddy's father tells them about selling wall hangings door-to-door Nate hates the idea but then after Nate looks at the grand prizefor most money raised he totally reconsiders.He could win a costumized skateboard!But will Artur sell more wall hangings? Find out by reading to see if Nate will lose the skateboard to his arch-enemy ''Artur?'' Will Gina his arch-arch-enemy ruin his chances?Will she tattle on him until he gets suspended?Find out by reading the latest and greatest Big Nate on a roll.

Nate is a boy who is a Timber Scout. This year the Timber Scouts are selling wall hangings. The grand prize for selling the most is a new skateboard. Nate wants to win the skateboard, but he has some competition. BIG NATE ON A ROLL is gut-busting fun for the whole family. I couldn't stop myself from laughing at the comics Nate drew about what was happening in his life. This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. I have loved reading books since I was four. Now I am an active nine, and for me to like a book it has to be a good one. This one was so good I read it twice!!!

It was a fun book to read, it would be better if the book was longer.  I enjoyed reading this book because of the comedy and theme of the book,and also because it was Hilarious. Loved the ending. And no you don't get to know it. Hehe.  I like Lincoln Peirce's books and his "Big Nate" Series. And I liked the pictures/comics. :)

My son has bookcases filled with books of all sorts. This is the first book he actually wanted to read without us reminding him it was reading time. He read it in three days and he "hates" to read. We will definitely be buying the complete series!

I haven't bought it for Nook but I have it in my house! It is about Nate lost his skate board and is in a fundraiser to get a new skateboard but can't get anyone to buy the warm fuzzy posters so he needs to get money to get it himself . Also see Doctor Cesspool comics new Moe Mentum comics in Nate's creation the Nate's Comix Crack Up comic book! He only sold one copy of it! Big Nate on a Roll is a silly book that will leave you in stitches like Nate's comic character Doctor Cesspool. P.S. I got the leave you in stitches part from the book. It has a silly ending which is happy! :)
