Big Nate Books
The Big Nate book series, based on the Big Nate comic strip, chronicles the small and large dramas of life in the sixth grade with humor and style. Nate doesn't enjoy school, but, despite his sarcasm, he's a good kid. The mix of narrative and comics-style illustrations make each book a quick, fun read, even for reluctant readers, and the series especially appeals to boys. Other Big Nate books are collections of the comic strips. Check out both types we've reviewed.
