Descrição

"Big Nate is funny, big time" —Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid

For fans of Jeff Kinney and Raina Telgemeier, here comes the second novel in the New York Times bestselling Big Nate series. 

BIG NATE will surpass all others!

But it won’t be easy. He’s stuck with Gina, his all-time enemy, in a class project for his least favorite teacher Mrs. Godfrey, aka Godzilla. To make matters worse, Gina ALSO ends up on his fleeceball team, right when Nate is set to win his first fleeceball championship ever. This is his moment for glory, but Gina's sure to steal his thunder, or ruin everything.  

Will Nate win or lose? Pass or fail? Or end up in detention . . . AGAIN?

Meet BIG NATE, self-described genius and definitely NOT the teacher’s pet in this comic-strip novel perfect for anyone who's ever been to middle school.

Sobre o autor

Lincoln Peirce began creating comics in the 6th grade (just like Big Nate!). He went on to teach art at a New York City High School. Lincoln created the cartoon-strip character Big Nate in 1991, naming the character after a nickname he gave his older brother as a kid. He lives in Portland, Maine in the US and as well as creating Big Nate comic strips and books, he hosts a local radio show.

    Middle school can be full of surprises and challenges for anyone. In this installment of the "Big Nate" series, Nate Wright is entering dangerous territory. His class is being assigned a special project and the kids get to work in pairs. As luck would have it, Nate is randomly paired up with his archenemy, Gina Hemphill-Toms. Gina isn't too happy either. As an A+ student, she's worried that Nate will bring down her grade point average.On the flip side of the coin, Nate covets winning the SPOFFY (Sports Played Only For Fun) trophy. He feels he is destined to win it during fleeceball season until he finds out that Gina is on his team. Nooo! It can't be, but it is. Since Gina doesn't even like sports, Nate worries that she will ruin everything.Will both Nate and Gina ruin everything for the other? Or can they come up with a plan to get what they both want? This is a great story about teamwork and friendship. Kids who enjoy reading the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series are sure to enjoy the adventures of Nate Wright in the "Big Nate" series as well.The Bottom Line: Author Lincoln Peirce captures the essence of middle school perfectly. This quick read takes me right back to my middle school days. It is highly entertaining. Nate Wright is so much fun that even reluctant readers will enjoy his latest adventure. While this book is a follow-up to "Big Nate: In a Class by Himself," it is not necessary to have read that book first. Anyone can easily pick up this second book and get right into the action. It is filled with age appropriate humor and fun illustrations. I, for one, can't wait to read the next book. Highly recommended for kids in grades 4 and up.

    Sometimes it's fun just to take a step back in time. I read YA most of the time, but occasionally I love me some Middle Grade. This little MG jewel is along the vein of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I read this book all in one sitting that took a couple, few hours. Nate is funny. I laughed more than once and throughly enjoyed this quick little read with the fun pictures included. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that Nate is self-centered and pretty much remains that way. I loved learning about Fleeceball and felt for Nate having to live with the name Kuddle Kittens for his team. Oh and now, I see Ben Franklin in a whole new light. I'm giving this fun little read 3 1/2 big kissies!

    I read the first Big Nate book over winter break just to see what my students were into, and I fell in love! I love finding great books for boys, especially middle grade boys, and Big Nate is so hysterical, but so well done, that I can’t wait for my own boys to read these.

    Delightful children's book. My 11 year old son loves this series. Big Nate Strikes Again addresses issues regarding bullying and getting along with others. Peirce avoids slipping into preaching saccharine sweet solutions to real kid problems via his sassy 6th grade hero, Nate. Perfect book for a reluctant reader.

    Big Nate Strikes Again is my first glimpse into the world of Big Nate. I found this book delightful and funny. I was expecting another Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, but I found the jokes more suitable for young readers. Right now I am reading this book to my class of 25 2nd grade boys. They love it! Big Nate Strikes Again is a homerun in my class!

    This book was much better than the previous one in the series, and leaps and bounds above the newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid offering. I don't think I'm saying that just because Gina and I have uncomfortable similarities either.

    For Diary of a Wimpy Kid fans who run out of Wimpy Kid books or for all those kids on the waiting list for Kinney's book, suggest the Big Nate series. Indeed Jeff Kinney gives the book a thumbs up right on the cover: "Big Nate is funny, big time." Can't do better than that kind of endorsement. It's about life in school, life at home -- all the trials and tribulations that kids face. Filled with voice that is spot-on for today's kids,

    Jake's Review: This book wasn't as good as the first book, but I still really liked it. These books are so funny and they really remind me of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I know Nate doesn't like him, but I think Arthur is pretty cool and he is a really talented illustrator. Ellen is still an annoying know it all and I wish she wasn't in it at all, I can see why Nate is bugged by her. There was too much Gina in this, I don't like her at all. I thought it was really funny when Nate dropped food on Jenny, it totally made me laugh. I think my friends will feel the same way as me, that it was a good book, but the 1st one was much funnier. I love the things that Nate says to himself, he reminds me of me sometimes, except for he has a better imagination. So Mom when are you buying me the next book -- you're going to Chapters on Saturday right (Mom's note: Darn, I was only going to buy Mommy books)Jake's Rating: 9/10Mom's Review: Honestly didn't even need to bother reading this since Jake told me the whole story when he was writing up his review. Must remind him about spoilers. But I read it anyway and I agree pretty much with Jake's opinion on this one. It isn't as good as the first book, but still definitely worth the price. Nate is a fun character and I really like the friendship between him and his two buddies. It is very realistic the way they diss each other. Trust me, I have watched Jake with his buddies Brian and Matthew and they love the dissing. Like the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, this is an awesome series for reluctant readers. There is a good mix between illustrations and writing to keep even the most reluctant reader interested. I really recommend these be part of all school and public libraries. Hopefully they will get the same attention as the Wimpy Kid books. BTW, there is a Librarian in this and really could you not have made her a little less stereotypical -- I know picky, picky.Mom's Rating: 9/10We received this from the HarperCollins booth at the OLA and wasn't required to review it, we just really liked them

    In this anticipated sequal, Big Nate humorously shows us what life is like for this 6th grader. With great illustrations to supplement Nate’s daily obstacles, from his confrontation with Gina to his life at home. A sure hit for boys and fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.

    Big Nate is back and better than ever! In his latest adventure, Nate must contend with his nemesis, Gina, when they are paired up to work together on a research paper and when she gets a position on his intramural fleeceball team. As with the first book, hilarity ensues as Lincoln Peirce aptly captures the humor and the humiliation of middle school through his comic-like drawings and text. Nate is a clever, likable character, and readers will root for him as he tries to overcome the latest obstacle to greatness - Gina. It is with satisfaction that Gina gets her own comeuppance at the end of the book. Nate has totally earned his place next to Greg Heffley on library shelves and in bookstores. This a natural read-alike and a great choice for reluctant readers. My copy of the book is already on its way to my 9 year old nephew. Young readers will anxiously await book 3 in the series, Big Nate on a Roll, due out in September 2011.

    "Big Nate Strikes Again" is an hilarious look into the life of a middle school student. I was completely surprised by this sequel to "Big Nate: In a Class by Himself." Not only is the story cute and completely believable, but the artwork and cartoons compliment the prose. Nate's middle school antics are thwarted by his arch nemesis, Gina. They banter and bicker their way through the entire book in a way that is so typical of middle school kids. In the end, they actually help each other succeed: Gina helps Nate win an important fleeceball championship while Nate helps Gina receive yet another A+ in a social studies project. I can't wait for the next book - what will happen next? As a highlight, the reader gets an unexpected look into the life of Ben Franklin and is shown how Nate and Ben would have been "Kindred spirits" had they been alive at the same time. Utterly charming.

    While Big Nate Strikes Again may be in the same size and format as the wildly popular Wimpy Kid series, it simply is not a Wimpy Kid book. Big Nate does not have the sardonic wit of the Wimpy Kid, and is written in a narrative rather than confessional, diary style. The sooner the reader dispels the urge for comparison, the sooner he will begin to enjoy Big Nate for what he is, a 6th grade boy with a couple of good friends, a crush on a cute girl, a passion for sports, a dislike for schoolwork, a rivalry with one of the “cool” kids, and a loathing for a bossy girl.Big Nate’s story is told in the first person, accompanied by black and white sketches. Peirce’s narrative contains dialogue which appears sometimes in the printed text, sometimes in graphic format, and sometimes strays between the two, with a single sentence beginning in print and ending in illustration. In addition to the more standard illustrations, Big Nate features sequences told in comic strip form, Nate’s own home-grown comics torn from his notebook, humorous “Fact” boxes,"DAD FACT:His concerned-parent face is exactly the same as his I-don’t-know-how-to-work-the-DVD-player face," and various lists, such as the food that may be found in Nate’s home,"The NO-SNACK ZONE! Cookies? NO! Chips? NEVER!! Try these yummy treats instead: Zesty Ranch croutonsPrunesHalf a bag of chopped walnutsThree packs on instant oatmealIce cubes ..."In Big Nate Strikes Again, Nate must navigate the difficult world of middle school and all of its pitfalls - working in pairs with Gina - the one girl he can’t stand, avoiding a boy who may want to beat him up, and dealing with the fact that he’s captain of a fleeceball team called (gasp!) The Kuddle Kittens!Big Nate Strikes Again contains prodigious amounts of boyish humor, and readers will find themselves rooting for this very likable young character.My only complaint? Why does the librarian have to be the “bad guy?”"Oop. It’s Hickey. Mrs. Hickson, I mean. She’s the head librarian, and she’s not really into “hanging out.” I’m pretty sure the beanbag chairs weren’t her idea. If you’re in her library, she want to see you DOING something. “Um... yeah, I’m doing research on Ben Franklin. “Well then,” she answers, “Wouldn’t a BOOK come in handy?” Librarians. Aren’t they hilarious? "(Sometimes we are! Well, at least Mr. Peirce didn’t draw her with a bun and glasses on a chain.)Bottom line? I think fans of the Wimpy Kid series will enjoy Big Nate, especially the boys.

    Nate is your typical middle school boy. He has a crush on a girl named Jenny but seem to always have run ins with a gril named Gina. Of course who does he get paired up with to do a project on Benjamin Franklin on? Gina! He also has to deal with her during the intramurals. This book will definately appeal to fans of Diary of the Wimpy Kid. Reluctant readers will also love it.

    The sixth grade is filled with many challenges - bullies, group projects, detention, sports. Big Nate certainly has his hands full. He's not an A student, a teacher's pet, or the most popular kid in school. But somehow he manages to navigate the trials of sixth grade and come out the other side in relatively good shape. My nine-year-old son loved the first book in this series, Big Nate in a Class by Himself, but he thought that this one was even better. I agree. Both are written like journals (similar to the style of the Wimpy Kid books), with plenty of pictures, cartoons, and other visuals throughout the chapters. This style works well to help readers see the world through Nate's eyes. And for most kids, the challenges that Nate faces are probably pretty similar to their own experiences. My favorite part of this book were Nate's challenges with his all-time enemy Gina. Gina is a bit of a goody two-shoes. She brings her report card for show and tell. So you can imagine Nate's disappointment whey they are paired up to write a report on Ben Franklin and are also on the same Fleeceball team. But despite the fact that Nate is the stereotypical goof off and Gina is the stereotypical brain, don't be too certain about how their partnerships will end up. They might just surprise you in the end. If you are looking for a humorous book that will encourage even reluctant readers to dive in, give Big Nate a try.

    Author Lincoln Peirce follows up his popular book Big Nate: In a Class by Himself with another entry chronicling the ups and downs in the life of middle-schooler Nate Wright. With its blend of cartoons and text, it is sure to please fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, as well as reluctant readers.In this installment, Nate, who has a little trouble applying himself to his schoolwork at times, is paired with Gina, the class brain, to do a report on Benjamin Franklin. Gina ranks high on Nate’s list of things he can’t stand (along with “crusty dried-up ‘erasers’ that don’t even work” and “squishy bananas”). To make matters worse, Gina has signed up for Nate’s intramural team to play a game called “fleeceball,” a version of indoor baseball using a broom handle and a puffy ball. Though she’s an ace at academics, her athletic ability is lacking and Nate is worried the coveted tournament trophy ( mostly made of aluminum foil) will slip from his grasp. The two spar over their respective tasks throughout the novel, but by the end, they’ve surprised each other with their talents, though they haven’t exactly come to a truce.The book follows familiar middle-school territory, but the cartoons and humor make for a fast and enjoyable read. Expect readers to be waiting eagerly for the next in the series.

    I received an Advance Reader’s Copy of Big Nate Strikes Again by Lincoln Pierce. I did not receive any compensation for reviewing this book.Kids who love Greg Hefley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid are going to love Nate Wright. Parents will probably like Nate better.Based on the comic strip “Big Nate” this series details the trials and tribulations of 6th grader Nate Wright. Nate finally has a chance to win the coveted SPOFFY Trophy (Sports Played Only For Fun). He’s been selected as a team captain for fleeceball – an indoor version of baseball. But nothing ever goes smoothly. Kept after school by a teacher, Nate is unable to make it to the meeting to pick his team. He lucks out and his best friends Teddy and Francis are on the team, but so is his archenemy – A+ know it all Gina! Not only does he have to put up with Gina on his fleeceball team, he’s paired with her on a social studies project. Can things get any worse or more hilarious?The humor in this book is definitively age appropriate. As an elementary librarian I spend a good deal of time around young children. The humor is right on target, but it’s not so obnoxious (as some kid like humor – Captain Underpants for example – can be) that adults will not enjoy it as well. I love Jeff Kinney and his Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. But lets be honest, I think I like Nate better. (Don’t worry I’ll still anxiously await any new Wimpy Kid books.) Nate is one of those likeable characters. Always up to something, but so charming you can’t help but like him. If you work in a school, you know what I’m talking about.As I mentioned in the beginning, I received an Advanced Readers’ Copy of this book. I liked it so much that not only am I going to recommend it to my students, I’ve already ordered a hard cover copy of this and the first book in the series for my library at home.Recommended for 3rd grade and up. (The AR reading level is 3.0 and even though Nate is a 6th grader, based on my experience I’m pretty sure 3rd grade and older will enjoy this book.)Mrs. Archer’s rating: 5 of 5

    Review for Book Sake by returning reviewer Jen.I love the idea of mixing the art of comics inside a book to get kids reading. Diary of a Wimpy Kid has done that and Big Nate is also formatted in a similar way.Big Nate is a middle school student who gets into enough trouble to create interest but not so much as you wonder what in the world he’s thinking. He has two buddies that are along for a laugh and often at his expense. And guess what? There is some girl trouble that keeps the story interesting. The girl in this story happens to be Gina, his archenemy. The two get paired up for a report on Ben Franklin, and that part of the story truly delivers a bit of educational content. But when they get paired up for a sports team Gina has the nerve to name the team without the okay from her team captain, Big Nate. The second book is easy enough to pick up even if you’ve missed the first book and it is geared for those on a 2nd to 5th grade reading level. The plot isn’t heavy. It’s not something that you’ll learn great life lessons from. What it does, and does well, is gets kids reading who might not normally be into reading. The change from text to comic so often keeps the reader interested and moves the story along with the visual clues that some kids need when reading at this level. Don’t think this one is just for boys either. My eight year-old daughter saw the book arrive and immediately offered to do the book review for me. She’s next to read it!
