Big Nate On A Roll was a 2012 YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers and a Junior Library Guild selection!
Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney says, "Big Nate is funny, big time!"
“[T]he slickest of this series...On a roll indeed!”
“Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or of Nate himself will savor P.S. 38’s most beleaguered hero.What carries the day are the zany illustrations and unflagging enthusiasm of Nate himself.”
“Nate is often compared to Jeff Kinney’s 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 Peirce’s cartoons and Nate’s own cartoons.”
“Nate’s persistent good cheer and moxie make him a likeable new proxy for young misfits.”
“Thank goodness sequels are planned!”
“Though Nate may not achieve the fame he seeks with his classmates, this sharp-witted and unflappable protagonist just might find it with readers.”
