Big Nate: From the Top by Lincoln Peirce
Big Nate is taking it from the top—the top of the troublemaker’s list!Nate Wright is eleven years old, four-and-a-half feet tall, and the all-time record holder for school detentions in school history. He’s a self-described genius and sixth-grade Renaissance man. Middle school kids everywhere can relate to Big Nate’s daily battle against overzealous teachers, undercooked cafeteria food, and all-around conventionality. This collection features cartoonist Lincoln Peirce’s daily and Sunday strips.
Cute, cute, cute cartoon book. Well, maybe cute isn’t the best word to describe it since it has mature content in it. Hilarious, hilarious, hilarious. That’s better! This is the only Nate book I’ve read. He’s a character alright! 🙂 One of my 6th graders gave it to me last year to read (Yes, my ToBeRead list is VERY long so I just got around to reading it this weekend). I can’t decide if it’s the kind of book that parents need to screen or if it’s exactly right for 6th graders. I thought it had some content in it that was maybe a little inappropriate for that age? Not sure-anyway, I liked it! :)It was my kind of humor-sarcastic and a little over the top.
