Publisher's Summary

Soon to be an animated series from Nickelodeon!

"Big Nate is funny, big time."

Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid

For fans of the hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid series: Get ready to meet Big Nate! In the first novel in the New York Times best-selling series, Big Nate is in a class by himself!

Nate knows he's meant for big things. REALLY big things. 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!

Trouble always seems to find him, but Nate keeps his cool. He knows he's destined for greatness. A fortune cookie told him so.Here comes BIG NATE, accidental mischief maker and definitely NOT the teacher's pet.

If you like jerks...

We're fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series (true, he can be a bit pessimistic) but besides being written in daily updates, Big Nate is NOT even close. He's a complete jerk with a bad attitude. Making fun of everyone, doing bad things, with not a redeeming trait in sight. Not something I like my son listening to and thinking is ok. I'd give it zero stars if I could.

The Noise narrative

I didn't like the way that the narrator is saying it, I feel like he is shouting not narrating a story.

first book isn't very good

the worst book on audible of the series by far because of all the pictures. It is very good in the story but i had to buy the actual book to:
get bonus material at the end
read comics
see the pictures (it has lots)
so the regular book gets 5 this gets 2 thanks to this
