    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). The stories were of decent quality, my favourite being the Chad diet because there was a good punchline on every page.

The stories were of decent quality, my favourite being the Chad diet because there was a good punchline on every page. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Received via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and unbiased reviewBig 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.

    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.

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