    Copy provided by publisherFirst 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?

    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 read it on their own, it's a hoot. This is a great gift for those little ones in your life. There are even jokes for the older folks.

    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.

    It's been a long time since I've read a comic book and needed something light and funny. This was perfect! It was like reading a comic version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which I really enjoyed.

    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).

My favourite line in this book has to be "Historians are still debating that" because it is such a serious line, but the juxtaposition of its seriousness and Nate saying it just killed me.

    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.

    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 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 Nate is rejected by the new pitcher Lila, who already has a boyfriend, as well as his former love, Jenny, who's back in town and still with foreign exchange student Artur. Yet he has hope, so Nate takes on the role of Private Eye to discover who wrote the scrap of note he found which must indicate there's an admirer out there.Big Nate: A Good Old-Fashioned Wedgie by Lincoln Peirce is full of word plays, poetry, jokes, and humor achieved by taking ordinary events experienced by preteens and creating a twist which brings a smile and even a laugh to the reader. Nate is both clever and an idiot at the same time as he deals with not only his nemesis Mrs Godfrey (she always has the last word) but his sister Ellen, his dad, Randy the school bully, and tattle tale Gina. With his tag along friends, Albert and Francis, Nate finds himself in questionable situations, but he never gives up even if his actions result in an old fashioned wedgie. My favorite sequence is when Nate is trying to adjust to summer vacation but keeps waking up at 6:30 in the morning. His solution: staying up all night watching TV and drinking Mountain Dew so he can finally sleep in until 9:30. Unfortunately it's PM not AM. Dad comments,"Time to readjust your readjustment."A quick fun read perfect for middle schoolers who will relate to Big Nate's angst.A thank you to Netgalley for a copy of this ARC in exchange for an honest review. This review also appears on my blog, Gotta Read.

    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 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.

    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.

    I really liked how the book showed different places and funny faces. Really weird stuff happens which made me laugh a lot.
