"Big Nate is funny, big time" —Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid

For fans of Jeff Kinney and Raina Telgemeier, here comes the second novel in the New York Times bestselling Big Nate series. 

BIG NATE will surpass all others!

But it won’t be easy. He’s stuck with Gina, his all-time enemy, in a class project for his least favorite teacher Mrs. Godfrey, aka Godzilla. To make matters worse, Gina ALSO ends up on his fleeceball team, right when Nate is set to win his first fleeceball championship ever. This is his moment for glory, but Gina's sure to steal his thunder, or ruin everything.  

Will Nate win or lose? Pass or fail? Or end up in detention . . . AGAIN?

Meet BIG NATE, self-described genius and definitely NOT the teacher’s pet in this comic-strip novel perfect for anyone who's ever been to middle school.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria Whipple | 2/16/2014

    " Big Nate is happy to be the captain of an intramural sports team, but of course things don't go as planned. Big Nate is a fun book to read, Peirce gets so many things about middle school and middle schoolers. The situations Nate gets into are completely plausible, if a little silly. The adults are portrayed a bit as caricatures, but they are very close to the perceptions of middle school age kids. These books are fun to read, with likable characters in situations most people can identify with. An excellent choice for those who enjoyed the Wimpy Kid books--just better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzze Tiernan | 2/13/2014

    " Not as laugh-out-loud as Big Nate, but very enjoyable. The things that go through Nate's head seem so believable for a boy his age! "
