Yas! It was time for a new Big Nate with a terrific and hilarious title! This is one of the comic-filled books and not the graphic novel with text one. I love both, but I was definitely in for some comics.
This time a new school year and plenty of detentions and silly things happening. Oh Nate, why aren’t you learning. XD I had a lot of laughs while reading this one. From corn muffins to Dee Dee and Nate’s competition to see who has the better gossip blog (which leads to some hilarious situations and Nate wondering if he really has all the right sources) to sports (chess, soccer, baseball, and even golf, yes there is a lot of sports). There are new excuses and some had me laughing and some had me shaking my head. Nate, how in the heavens did you think that was a good one? There is a lot happening in this time and I was in for it. I know that no matter how boring a day, Nate makes it funny. Either unintentionally or intentionally. And I absolutely LOVED that Star Trek the Next Generation is mentioned, though, haha, I wonder how many kids know that show given the age of that.
And of course there are the holidays. Halloween and Christmas. Dressing up and mall Santa’s (who is also the picture guy, yes, this guy is doing all the jobs).
There is also a part on the HP series. My inner fangirl was excited, but my rational side was also shaking her head given all that Rowling did (and is still doing).
And yes, the corn muffins come back in the story and I loved it! It wasn’t just a funny title, oh no, there is a story along with it!
All in all, tons of fun and I am happy I had the change to read this one~ Recommended.
