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.

    This book is amazing like the others but personally it could have been a little better, funnier. I would still say that read this book because it isn't horrible its actually amazing but could have been better.

      When I saw this, I expected something other than this. Much better than i had expected! Nate is so funny and curious, not to mention a little annoying. I would read this again because nothing can change the happy feeling I had felt when I read this.

        This book is a really funny comic book and I didn't like it that much, since I am a bit too old, (4th grade) though I recommend to 2nd graders.

          I've been really into graphic novels lately, and this is a really good one that makes being in trouble really relatable. I love how funny this book is! I would definitely recommend reading it. And admiring the cool comic art.

            Big Nate: From the Top is a really great comic book. It is written from the perspective of a sixth grader named Nate. He is a class clown and is always getting in trouble. I liked this book a lot!

                This is a very humorous book. Nate is very naughty sometimes. Sometimes he is helpful. He has a world record for the most detentions. I read this series and I really like it! I really like the author who makes all the Big Nate books.

                  This is another great Big Nate book. I am a big fan of this series, and I can't wait for a new one to be published! :-)

                    Big Nate is a graphic novel about a kid in middle school who does everything wrong. I think this book is something that we can all relate to. Everybody has gotten in trouble or gone through middle school.
