Hot off the best-seller list, Big Nate is in a class by himself. This spunky 11-year-old holds the school record in detentions, but that doesn’t stop him from dreaming big!

Big Nate is taking it from the top—the top of the troublemaker's list!

Nate Wright is eleven years old, four-and-a-half feet tall, and the all-time record holder for school detentions in school history. He's a self-described genius and sixth-grade Renaissance man. Middle-grade kids everywhere can relate to Big Nate's daily battle against overzealous teachers, backbreaking homework, wimpy cafeteria food, and all-around conventionality. This collection features cartoonist Lincoln Peirce's daily and Sunday comic strips packed with his vintage flair and insights into school humor.

                  Big Nate From the Top was pretty ok. I wouldn't say I'd enjoy it, but I think I enjoyed Big Nate Makes the Grade more. If I were to compare those two comics, I think I would like BNMG because it's more funnier to me. The reason why I think it's funnier because he and Gina are always fighting, which reminds me of these two classmates that I have. One other reason why I don't like BNFT more than BNMG is because I think BNFT doesn't really make sense. I didn't enjoy it, but I hop ya'll can understand me!
