Nate Wright is having his worst school day ever. Everything goes wrong as he accumulates one detention after another. 

After eating a fortune cooking containing the message, “You will surpass all others”, Nate forms a plan that includes setting the record for consuming cafeteria green beans, and catching the eye, and heart, of the “popular girl”, Jenny. As each antic backfires, Nate’s miseries increase.

If you loved “Diary of a Wimpy Kid’”, you’re going to love Big Nate, and Peirce’s comic strip characters are a delight. So how does Nate’s day end? Read it and laugh!  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face Award nominee, 2011-2012)
