"Big Nate is funny, big time,” says Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney. This New York Times bestselling series (38 weeks and counting!) offers up BIG laughs in the fourth book. In this newest adventure, Nate has met with an accident and gets more than carried away when all the extra attention sends him on a Nate-centric power trip. A starred review in The Horn Book raves, “The millions of Wimpy Kid fans will be thrilled to find another cartoon buddy to read about and will not be disappointed with this good-hearted king of detention.”
Big Nate knows trouble. He is the king of detention, after all. He may not be Joe Honor Roll, but Nate knows he’s meant for big things—REALLY big things.
In book four, Nate is back in action. This time, daredevil Nate’s quest to achieve his destiny (you know...greatness!) lands him in the hospital with a broken bone. His family and friends are eager to help him cope, but they soon tire of his increasingly ridiculous demands. Meanwhile, P.S. 38 is in competition with their biggest rival, Jefferson Middle School, and Nate is out to save the day.
Nate’s world pops off the page with more than 500 black-and-white illustrations, including Nate’s own comics, doodles, unforgettable “top 10” lists, and dramatic flashbacks. And there’s big-time buzz—Big Nate was selected for the Horn Book Fanfare List of Best Books of 2010 and BarnesandNoble.com’s Top 10 and was an IndieBound Spring Pick and a Children's Choice Book Award finalist.
Also, Big Nate has been licensed in nineteen foreign deals so far, including Turkey, Portugal, Germany, Brazil, Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Canada, China, Japan, Taiwan, Holland, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Denmark, and will be translated into Catalan, North American Spanish, and Hebrew.
Nate’s hilarious hijinks just keep on coming and they will have you rolling on the floor with laughter!
