Big Nate Goes for Broke

Big Nate Goes for Broke [1]

When the sprinkler system at school goes haywire filling the school with water and mold Big Nate and his friends think they will get an unexpected 2 week break from P.S. 38. Instead, they get bused to Jefferson Middle School instead – their arch enemies who beat them in EVERYTHING…soccer, battle of the bands, math quiz bowl – everything!

What’s worse, when they get to Jefferson it’s…really nice.

Jefferson Middle School Fancy Facts:
1. The drinking fountains all have motion sensors.
2. The auitorium has movie style seats and then RECLINE!
3. There’s a rec room for kids to use during free periods.
4. They don’t have a cafetorium…they have a FOOD COURT…that smells GOOD.

The P.S. 38 kids are sick of it. They think hard about what kind of competition they could challenge Jefferson to that would given them a chance at winning…and Nate comes up with it…the Ultimate Snowdown Snow Sculpture Contest. Can Nate lead his P.S. 38 friends to victory? Author: Lincoln Peirce [2] (Pronounced “purse” – who knew?)
