Summary

Summary

Big Nate is back in the fourth instalment of his own super-funny series. Big Nate is created by Lincoln Peirce, who inspired Jeff Kinney, author of 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'. When you've got a head the size of Big Nate's then losing is not an option. But Nate's school P.S. 38 gets beaten by arch-rivals Jefferson Middle School at EVERYTHING. Whether it's sports, maths or a snowball fight in the park, P.S. 38 just can't ever seem to win. So when their school springs a leak and they have to join forces with Jefferson for a while, Nate and his friends are mortified. What degrading loses must they face now? Or can Nate find something that P.S. 38 can actually win at?

Horn Book Review

In this fourth Big Nate book, P.S. 38 needs repairs, so the students must temporarily attend archrival Jefferson Middle School. Attempting to finally beat Jefferson at something, Nate enters a writing contest and competes in a snow sculpture contest. Nates enthusiastic nature, his amusing mishaps, and Peirces inviting comic style will keep fans happy. (c) Copyright 2012. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
