A poor imitation of Calvin and Hobbes. Get the real thing, skip this.

Another excellent collection

One of the few comic strips I have to read on a regular basis. This strip would make a great cartoon show.

Part of my Reading Challenge for my 20 books by the end of the year, books they would like! This is Book #4 of the Challenge!

I loved it! I really think the comic strips are in there to make the teachers and parents laugh! This is a graphic novel about an upper elementary-middle school boy, his family and friends. As I read it and enjoyed the stories, I can see why this is a favorite series for my boy students. These stories are a hoot!

Like I said, I think it is humor for those of u

Even though they are funny the only reason the big Nate books are as funny as they are is because they make you feel smart. Big nag looks dumb and this causes you to think you are smart. This is not the only instance of this happening is also happens in sitcoms and many other forms of entertainment. But still these books are some of the better comics in comic history but still there are comics like the far side, peanuts, Calvin and Hobbes, and many others.

I loved a lot, but who doesn't like Nate? I mean he is super funny and makes a really great character overall! anyway, this book was kind of short as a lot of graphic novels are so 4/5?
