Review by

If your kids like comic strip characters for a quick fun read, then Big Nate will work just right. A great character for boys who don't necessarily want to have their nose in a typical chapter books. As Nate prepares for another ambitious school year, he fondly refers to school as the “Chamber of Horrors,” he begins by trying to find a replacement pair of lucky socks. His old pair are stinky and falling apart from lack of washing. Once in class, Nate is finding that not much has changed. He still has bad luck, he gets on his teachers nerves and some fellow classmates still think he is a jerk and have no problem expressing it.Nate's laughable point of view will have kids chuckling about his brand of luck and interaction at school. Throughout the pages kids will enjoy his various guides for school “Do's and Don'ts” and “Survive or Else” and “Faculty Interviews” and there are plenty more.
