This is amazing! Nate always has ability to bring smile on my face.

And guess what? Jenny is back! I was pretty sad when she was transferred to Seattle and I really missed her.

this daily digest collection is having following parts

1. Nate falling for new quarter back Lila
2. Jenny's arrival back to PS 38
3. Francis' obsessions over correct grammar usage
4. Chad's diet with Soya nut and Kale
5. Nate's obsession over changing PS 38's mascot - BOBCAT

First of all, I LOVE Mrs. Godfrey. Nate draws insulting pictures of her, so the obvious "punishment" is sitting for more portraits during Nate's lunch. Nate's ego and his methods of attracting middle schools girls are so true-to-life and hysterically funny. The only think I don't understand is this-- why is Peirce one of the few writers who really understands middle school so well? As much as I love Nate, I'd really like to see another novel from this author, since he h

I have been reading Big Nate comics since my younger years. Big Nate: A Good Old-Fashioned Wedgie is a compilation of comics about Nate Wright. From his newest crush, to his summer vacation and the dreaded return back to school, and, of course, a few good old-fashioned wedgies. Staring all the characters we've grown to know, love, and loathe, this is another addition to a great series.

A collection of comical fun for the whole family. Whether you're reading this with your kids or letting them rea
Nate is his good, old self. In Big Nate: A Good Old-Fashioned Wedgie he takes time to brush up on his grammar skills, his baseball finesse, and his detective sleuthing...all with questionable success. He is also finding time to dabble in romance now that Jenny is back in town. However, Jenny still wants absolutely nothing to do with Nate. But, Nate can be patient!

Full of humor and laugh-out-loud antics, this Big Nate will not disappoint fans.

Big Nate is good for the occasional chuckle, but the repetition of gags from volume to volume does wear on a constant reader.

A funny, new addition to the Big Nate collections where Nate falls in love with the new pitcher, Jenny comes back, school starts, Chad goes on a diet, and other antics ensue. The comics in this book were of regular, Big Nate quality with characters well-formed, coloured, and consistently drawn (because don't you just hate when a good illustration of a character changes). The stories were of decent quality, my favourite being the Chad diet because there was a good punchline on every page. My favo ...more

Just in case the title isn’t enough, the cover shows a kid giving another kid a wedgie. Believe it.
I’ve read this comic strip before, and despite the fact the main character is a total butt monkey it’s pretty funny, even hilarious at times. In this edition Nate’s back on the baseball team, though quickly benched for rapping from the outfield, falls in love for the millionth time, sees a past crush return from Seattle, offers to help dad with his manscaping, helps his buddy with a diet, binges on

Nate is back in a book that mostly covers the summer. He's playing baseball again but Chester isn't their pitcher this year. Instead, Nate's dad calls one of Nate's old preschool playmates to come in and help out. Nate is crushing on her pretty hard until he finds out that Jenny has moved back to town. There is a storyline with Nate being astonished that Chad is getting so many signatures in his yearbook. Toward the end, we get a few strips with Mrs. Godfrey. Because how could this be a Big Nate ...more

Nate Wright is back searching for romance by putting little notes on each girl's locker, helping his friend Chad lose some weight, and playing baseball on a team called the Cream Puffs. It's the end of another school year, time for yearbook signatures then summer vacation with baseball, the beach, and a trip to the fair. Gramps visits, Nate earns money so he can go to the movies, and his dog Spitsy continues to be an embarrassment. Ever unsuccessful in his various attempts at courtship, poor Nat ...more

My son absolutely loves anything Big Nate! He literally inhales these books! There are not tons of books that a 8-11 year old will just sit down willingly, without any coercion and just read for pleasure! Big Nate captures the magic of youth and presents great stories with fun drawings! I think my kid forgets he is reading!!!
If you have a struggling reader or one who just doesn't enjoy reading, I highly recommend any of these! My son has read-and owns- every single one of these because he has su

This book was a good read and I definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a funny book or likes comics.

This book was about the usual Big Nate books- Nate's life in school. Chad goes on a diet, Nate wedgies a snooty kid bragging about his private school, and Nate has a crush on his baseball teams new pitcher.

This book was very funny and I was cracking up a lot. I recommend this for ages 8+. It also comes with a big pullout poster!!

I was not sure what to expect from my guest Big Nate book but I enjoyed it. I have read plenty of kids series and comics and this is one for pure lighthearted enjoyment. It reminded me a bit of diary of a wimpy kid in comic form. I will look forward to more lighthearted reading with the next book I pick up from the series.

I want to thank the publisher and netgalley for giving me a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I liked this book because Nate is on vacation and he tries to get his friends to yell at him so he can get used to his teacher yelling at him. His friends would not yell at him so he threw a Frisbee at someone to get them to yell at him. Nate also found a note that said " Ate is absolutely adorable" and Nate thought it was for him so he went on a hunt to find the girl and he found her but then he realized that it was not for him.

I understand Big Nate comes from a whole series of books in a comic book-style, but this is the first that I've seen. It's a nice middle school-age friendly tale about Nate looking for love at school. It's a nice change to read a story in this format than just simple text, and I imagine young teens will enjoy reading this. In fact I really enjoyed it and I am definitely not a teenager! Definitely recommend as a bit of light-hearted reading for pre-teens.

I see why my middle school students love Big Nate, but I didn’t personally enjoy it at all. I would recommend it for any upper elementary or middle school age kiddo looking for a funny book, especially if they are reluctant readers. I mean, what was I expecting from a book with wedgie in the title?!?

Big Nate is solid comedy gold for the younger spectrum of YA. I love buying these books for my 9-year old godson, and will continue to do so. Always a joy, and good for a chuckle.

Hey, when your 8-year-old says, "Mom, you should read this book; you'll like it," you READ said book. And he was right; I did enjoy it! I'm a huge fan of Calvin and Hobbes, and this is similar in style and theme. Cute and enjoyable read!

This book was alright but it wasn't my type of book but still it was kind of entertaining for a little bit, i don't like how Nate is always trying to act so cool it makes me so mad i hope the other ones are better than this one it is just annoying.

The latest in the Big Nate graphic novel series will not disappoint fans of Nate and his antics. Colorful, funny. Will also appeal to reluctant/struggling readers (especially true in middle school settings).

It's back to 2013 for these strips, which probably means they've been published once or twice before now, either in colour (like here) or just black and white. Either way, he's consistently funny and clever, for a cartoon for this age group, and the books are still very, very likeable.
