Book Description

March 15 2010 Big Nate (Harper Collins) (Book 1)

For fans of the ever popular, ever hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid series: Get ready to meet Big Nate! In the first novel in the New York Times bestselling series, Big Nate is in a class by himself!

But things don't always go your way just because you're awesome. Nate barely survives his dad's toxic oatmeal before rushing off to school—minus his lunch. He body slams the no-nonsense principal. He accidentally insults his least favorite teacher, the horrifying Mrs. Godfrey (aka Godzilla). And school has barely started!

Nate keeps his cool. He knows he's destined for greatness. A fortune cookie told him so. Includes a sneak peek to the second Big Nate novel, Big Nate Strikes Again.

Big Nate: In a Class by Himself was nominated for the 2013 Young Readers Choice Awards of the Pacific Northwest, won the 2012-2013 Great Stone Face Book Award in New Hampshire, and won a 2011 Read Kiddo Read "Pageturner" award!

5.0 out of 5 stars 4th Grader LOVES this book Oct. 26 2010
By J. Mathy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My son could not put this book down. He loved the irreverent humor, the use of comic-like panels to move the story along, and the character. First thing he asked when he finished it -- do they have other "Big Nate" books? Happily, they do!

5.0 out of 5 stars My son can't stop reading and laughing! May 10 2010
By Christie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My son loved the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and I was desperate to find another book that he enjoyed reading as much. Well, this is the book. I think he likes it better than the Wimpy Kid series. He carries it with him wherever he goes and asks to stay up and read!! I LOVE this book! To any parent who wants to help their child learn to love reading, this is a good choice. I hope there are more.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Funnier but ruder than Diary of a Wimpy Kid May 5 2011
By Incessant Cleaner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is the first of many chapter books about a kid named Nate, his schoolmates and family, and illustrations about the shenanigans he gets himself into all the time. I got this book for my 13-year-old boy, who absolutely loved it. He's read all the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" books, and he was looking for something similar to read now that he's finished the series. He read "Big Nate: In a Class by Himself" pretty quickly, and told me afterwards that it was even funnier than the Wimpy Kid books. If you have a child around that age that has read and enjoyed "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and its sequels, your kid will most likely appreciate reading the Big Nate books too. The back cover says the book is appropriate for ages 8-12.

I've looked through the book myself, as well as all the Wimpy Kid books, and I would say the Big Nate book is a bit more rude. The characters say "shut up", "what the..." and other mildly offensive phrases, and Nate constantly insults his teachers and principal behind their backs. I'm not saying that all parents should refrain from buying this book because of that, but if you don't want your child reading books with that kind of humor, it's understandable. Find another book for your child. If it's not an issue for you and your child, go buy it and let the laughs begin!

1.0 out of 5 stars My son will not be reading this Aug. 30 2010
By PPL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This was a birthday gift for my 8 year old son but I read it over before giving it to him. I don't understand the enthusiasm for this book. Why can't a writer produce a book that engages boys without filling it with sarcasm and disrespect directed toward adults? I also wasn't too happy with some of the language (moron, stupid, shut your big fat mouth, etc.) The entire book is filled with the character ridiculing others. I could go on and on. Maybe if my son was older and I was trying desperately to get him to read something, I would settle for this. As an adult, I found some passages funny. But this book isn't meant for an adult, it is meant for a child.
