Big Nate On A Roll by Lincoln Pierce

Nate is used to being the class clown and top dog in his school. But when foreign student Artur comes to town, Nate's whole world is turned upside down. Nate can't even escape Artur in the Timber Scouts, as Artur is the troop's newest member. Then the Scouts hold a fundraising contest, and Nate sees an opportunity to once again rise to the cream of the crop.

Dear Lincoln Pierce, I have been your biggest fan since buying Add More Babes back in '92. I was only 9 years old and your comics and Nate character rocked my funny bone. Seriously, though, Big Nate comics are awesome. The drawings are simple and the comedic timing is impeccable. Pierce has created such a genuine, trouble-making boy in Nate. It is hard not to smile while reading these books, and this latest installment may be the best yet. This story is so cute and sweet and honestly not predictable. And the ending was so good! Bravo, Lincoln Pierce, Bravo! If you have not tried Big Nate yet, give this book a whirl! These stories will especially appeal to those elusive young male readers out there. Can't wait for the next one!

Overall Rating: 5 Stars
