Young Reader Reaction: Our daughter loves Nate more than she does Wimpy Kid. She laughs her way through every book, and usually reads it cover to cover in one sitting. She talked about the skunk (cartoon) for days!

Adult Reader Reaction: With Nate, you're never sure what is going to happen next. I'm amazed that my daughter sits to read the whole book, because despite the cartoon insets, there is a lot of text on the page. It is unfortunate that Artur is such a caricature of an ESL student. Early in the book Nate describes Artur's broken English as "charming" (as written in the book). The comment - and dialogue in the book - are insensitive and overdone.

Pros: Preteens will love - and laugh out loud - this illustrated "diary" of Big Nate's life. Dormant, struggling, and avid readers will find something to love in this cartoon-ish story.

This is an incredibly well-illustrated chapter book that tells a great story. Told and illustrated in the first person, It follows Nate as he struggles in school and at home with finding his place. He struggles with another character, Arthur, who Nate calls "Mr. Perfect" and "Mr. Lucky" and who has joined Nate's scout troop. The book is reminiscent of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and may be a pre-curser to it for readers. It is funny and very graphic-novel-esque in style and appeal. It would be a great book to get mid-late elementary-age students into reading because of the content and style. ( )

I never really noticed how boring the detention room is.
Obviously my comics are too sophisticated for some people.
