Big Nate is in a class by himself!
Nate knows he's meant for big things. Really big things.

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!
Above all this book was ok but please consider these certain parts of the book before presenting this to your child. Thank you for reading.
