BIG NATE: HUG IT OUT! by Lincoln Peirce, Andrews McMeel Publishing


Sixth grade is no picnic for Nate Wright. His pal Francis won’t stop bombarding him with useless trivia. A wild pitch knocks him out of a ballgame and into the emergency room. And the only thing standing between Nate and summer school is a study session with the worst possible tutor: his too-obnoxious-for-words arch enemy, Gina. But a chance encounter on an amusement park ride could change everything. Meanwhile, the troubles are piling up in this hilarious new collection of Big Nate comics, and there may be only one thing for Nate to do: HUG IT OUT! In this brand-new collection of comics from the New York Times bestselling series Big Nate, everyone’s favorite sixth-grade prankster is back for more hilarious misadventures — and even a little romance!

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Once again, Lincoln Peirce nails it! Everything outlined in this book perfectly depicts the crushes, icky, gross love interests of kids at this age and Peirce does this with fantastic humor that is fun, zany and often reminiscent of times for adults when they were this age. Young readers will love to relate to Nate and his friends. I wouldn’t limit this book to just kids though, there’s an appeal to it for adults!

I loved so many strips in the book, like summer school fears, new kids at school, summer hijinks… Nate is loveable because he’s relatable, in a fun often-times silly way. It’s great reading aimed at making you laugh. I love Nate!
