For fans of the hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, here comes the eighth novel in the New York Times bestselling series Big Nate.


Nate has a crush on Ruby. But after his scrap with Randy Betancourt makes headlines in the Weekly Bugle, he's got a problem WAY worse than detention! Can Nate bounce back? And will the annual Mud Bowl be a blast . . . or a bust?

Meet BIG NATE, P.S. 38's coolest doodler and definitely NOT the teacher's pet.

        This book was really funny and a milestone for the Big Nate series since he finally got someone to like him! Also, it was great to see Nate finally get along with Randy, and we get to see Randy's backstory as well!

          NATE LOVES RUBY! When Ruby joins the school, Nate stops chasing after Jenny! This is an awesome book, and it has many different characters on one page. Enjoy!

            Big Nate Blasts Off is a very funny book that I recommend for 3rd graders and up. It's the perfect book to read when you are in a bad mood.
