Big Nate: In A Class By Himself: In a Class by Himself

by Lincoln Peirce

HarperCollins | March 23, 2010 | Hardcover

Big Nate: In A Class By Himself: In a Class by Himself is rated 4 out of 5 by 3.

For fans of the hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid series: Get ready to meet Big Nate! In the first novel in theNew York Timesbestselling series, Big Nate is in a class by himself!

Nate knows he’s meant for big things. REALLY big things. But things don’t always go your way just because you’re awesome. Nate barely survives his dad’s toxic oatmeal before rushing off to school—minus his lunch. He body slams the no-nonsense principal. He accidentally insults his least favorite teacher, the horrifying Mrs. Godfrey (aka Godzilla). And school has barely started!

Trouble always seems to find him, but Nate keeps his cool. He knows he’s destined for greatness. A fortune cookie told him so.

Here comes BIG NATE, accidental mischief maker and definitely NOT the teacher’s pet.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big Nate in class by himself is a great book for kids 8+! Big Nate in class by himself, is a book about a boy named Nate who isn’t have a great day at school. But that school day soon turned around after Nate opened up a fortune cookie that said ‘‘Today you will surpass all others’’. Throughout the day things started to go the opposite. People that enjoy the books Diary of a wimpy kid, and Captain underpants will love the big Nate series because big Nate, captain underpants, and Diary of a wimpy kid have similar humor. The book has a little bit of inappropriate language. Personally I would recommend the book to kids over the age of 8 because of the inappropriate use of language. I think this is a really great book for kids age 8+. The book has some inappropriate language. Big nate in class by himself has really good illustration, with some funny comic strips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good choice for a "High-Low" book - Getting boys to read. Very similar in style to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. This is a "High-Low" book i.e. the books interest level is set to a higher age than it's reading difficulty level. This makes it a terrific book for kids that are not really interested in reading, or not reading at their grade level. It has a big, easy to read font, the story is funny and the text is supported with lots of comical drawings. My 11-year old son enjoyed it but not as much as the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series..

Editorial Reviews

Praise for BIG NATE ON A ROLL: “Nate is often compared to Jeff Kinney’s Wimpy Kid and will appeal to the same audience, he bears more resemblance to the tricksters of folklore...the interplay between text and pictures remains fresh, as does the distinction between Peirce’s cartoons and Nate’s own cartoons.”

Appropriate for ages: 9 - 12
