BIG NATE: THE GERBIL ATE MY HOMEWORK, by Lincoln Peirce, Andrews McMeel Publishing

Fun, Great Characters, Laugh Out Loud Antics…

The thrilling next installment in the enormously popular Big Nate series.

You’ve got to know where you stand to survive sixth grade, and Nate Wright’s found the perfect spot: right next to Sherman, the class gerbil. Can Nate’s furry friend bail him out of his latest homework jam with Mrs. Godfrey? Or will there be a paper trail leading straight to detention? Nate has no answers, but plenty of ideas—like directing a superhero movie starring the amazing Mega-Chad, inventing a new name for his pal Francis, and living up to his reputation as a P.S. 38 Prank Day legend. Special final exam bonus question: Does Nate makes it to summer vacation? Find out in this new collection of uproarious Big Nate comics! Middle school has never been funnier!

I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

Lincoln Peirce does it again. Funny as all get out, entertaining to the very end, and typical big Nate predicaments to enjoy. Yes, the fun of Big Nate remains the same since its hatching, but a pleasure and silliness for new eyes to enjoy. I like its consistency and “clean” sense of humor. It’s an easy read and comes with a collectible poster.

The style of the artwork is bright and fun, the book is full of a great supporting cast that add to Big Nate’s stories and the strip will remain one of my favorites for all time. I love to share my Big Nate books with neighborhood kids so that they can be introduced to Peirce’s talent enough to carry the torch well into the future. Can’t wait to see what else Peirce comes up with.

I gave it:

Five star rating – shiny golden stars
