“Laugh-out-loud!” School Library Journal
“Nates persistent good cheer and moxie make him a likeable new proxy for young misfits.” Booklist
“Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or of Nate himself will savor P.S. 38s most beleaguered hero.What carries the day are the zany illustrations and unflagging enthusiasm of Nate himself.” Bulletin of the Center for Children & #8217;s Books
Praise for BIG NATE STRIKES AGAIN: “Fans will be in heaven; thank goodness number three is already on the way.” Kirkus Reviews
Praise for BIG NATE ON A ROLL: “[T]he slickest of this series...On a roll indeed!” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Praise for BIG NATE ON A ROLL: “Nate is often compared to Jeff Kinneys Wimpy Kid and will appeal to the same audience, he bears more resemblance to the tricksters of folklore...the interplay between text and pictures remains fresh, as does the distinction between Peirces cartoons and Nates own cartoons.” The Horn Book
"A progressively silly, retro-geeky action story for the YOLO generation"
"Schreiber remains talented at combining anything-can-happen action and on-the-mark humor...Rash's spot cartoons are entirely in sync with the story's goofy metafictional humor and deliver many jokes themselves, making the novel read like a distant action-oriented cousin to the Wimpy Kid books."
"Short chapters, engaging titles, lists, and several diary-type sketches will appeal to kids with short attention spans."
and#8212;School Library Journal
"A madcap adventure that leaves no doubt that 'video games are serious business.'"
