Product description

Meet the classic comic-strip character who inspired Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, as he stars in his own super-funny book series. Big-headed Nate Wright truly believes he is destined for greatness! After all, he’s a table tennis champ, a genius comic book artist and the self-proclaimed king of his class. So why is he having such a bad day? He barely survives his dad’s toxic porridge. He accidentally body-slams his headmaster AND insults his worst teacher, Mrs Godfrey (aka “Godzilla”). Worse still, when he attempts to set a world speed-eating record, he only succeeds in setting a new school record for the most detentions in one day! A hilarious novel packed with cartoons and comic-strips – perfect for any Wimpy Kid fan.

“Big Nate is funny, big time.” Jeff Kinney

    Big Nate is an extremely funny person that always does the weirdest things. In this book Nate believes that he is destined for greatness and grabs every chance possible to prove that he is. But his terrifying teacher ,Mrs Godfrey, makes it very hard to do.

    I read it in the airport in the bookstore while waiting for our baggage check-in line to operate, So I could not read the entire book.. but I loved whatever I read in it!I am more like Nate’s best friend ( Again, I don’t know the name because the reading was pretty rough).. may sound nerdy and all that and trust me, I am!

    Body-slamming the headmaster is one of the worst things ever to do! * * * *

    A very funny book. Big Nate thinks he’s brilliant at everything, but things are always going wrong for him. The book is full of jokes and funny characters. If you like the Wimpy kid diaries then you will like this!

    Nate is a middle school boy in a big mess! His sister had been star student but Nate, not even close. Read this boy-like written diary and discover all the hilarious adventures laid before you! Whoever loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid will love this to.
