The book Big Nate Pray for a fire drill by Lincoln Perice. I do not read Big Nate that much but when I do I love it. It would be cool if they made a movie.

This book was about Nate's girl getting stolen and then going steady for one day. Then Nate try's to go steady with a random girl and then they break up after 5 minutes.
Then their is a test in social studies and Nate did not prepare. Nate mentioned that they had not had a fire drill in a while.

I recommend this book for people that like comed

A collection from a comic strip...about a kid, primarily occurring during a school year. Pretty cute really. The creator was born in Iowa & was a teacher, & has drawn comics for 20 years!

In this book, Nate deals with the fact that Jenny may never be his, Mrs. Godfrey returning from maternity leave, and fighting for his right to write poetry to Cheez Doodles.
Peirce also included some listener submitted comics that pay homage to the Nate strip.

Pray for a fire drill has very funny and hilarious comics from Lincoln Pierce and the part which is related to the cover page is like when Nate sends a note to the principal saying that they should have a fire drill at exactly 9:30 and thus, he doesn't study for the quiz/test.
Pierce is very good and I admire his work in comics of Big Nate!
