"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 lots of laughs in this comic-book compilation, the first of four BRAND-NEW HarperCollins Big Nate comic-strip collections! In the spirit of Andrews McMeel’s first two compilations, Big Nate from the Top and Big Nate Out Loud, but with signature Nate quotes and a special activity in the back. 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.”
Cartoonist extraordinaire. Accidental mischief maker. Self-described genius. 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.
Now Nate’s better than ever in a whole new format! This is the first of four BRAND-NEW HarperCollins Big Nate comic-book compilations! In the spirit of Andrews McMeel’s first two compilations, Big Nate from the Top and Big Nate Out Loud, but with quotes from Nate and a hidden surprise.
These compilations will include more than 200 comic strips and have quotes from the Big Nate novels. Lincoln Peirce is compiling his favorite comic strips for this collection, which will have kids in stitches! Plus this includes a sneak peek at Big Nate Flips Out!
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. Also, the Big Nate series 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, Denmark, and Poland, and will be translated into Catalan, North American Spanish, and Hebrew.
