Big Nate #1: Big Nate: In a Class by Himselfby Lincoln Peirce
Synopses & Reviews
For fans of the ever popular, ever hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid series: Get ready to meet Big Nate! In the first novel in the New York Times bestselling series, Big Nate is in a class by himself!
But things don't always go your way just because you're awesome. Nate barely survives his dad's toxic oatmeal before rushing off to school—minus his lunch. He body slams the no-nonsense principal. He accidentally insults his least favorite teacher, the horrifying Mrs. Godfrey (aka Godzilla). And school has barely started!
Nate keeps his cool. He knows he's destined for greatness. A fortune cookie told him so. Includes a sneak peek to the second Big Nate novel, Big Nate Strikes Again.
Big Nate: In a Class by Himself was nominated for the 2013 Young Readers Choice Awards of the Pacific Northwest, won the 2012-2013 Great Stone Face Book Award in New Hampshire, and won a 2011 Read Kiddo Read "Pageturner" award!
