Big Nate on a Roll

Big Nate on a Roll

Big Nate on a Roll

Nate ends up in detention again but it isn’t his fault, it’s Artur’s fault. Nate loses his skateboard but it isn’t his fault, it’s Artur’s fault. Nate’s still in love with Jenny but she doesn’t love him back…and IT’S ARTUR’S FAULT.

When Artur misunderstand’s Nate and leads Nate’s archnemesis Gina to believe Nate loves HER…well, that is definitely Artur’s fault and Nate has had it up to HERE with Artur! Artur “Mr. Perfect.” Artur “Mr. Always has the answer the teacher wants.” Artur “Mr. the Guy who is dating Jenny”…which is just WRONG.

When the Timber Scouts announce a new fundraising effort with the top prize being a new customized skateboard, Nate is determined to beat Artur and win that skateboard. Since Nate thinks the wall hangings he’s supposed to sell are lame, he decides to make as much money as he can doing what he wants and then use THAT money to buy enough wall hangings to beat Artur. As Spongebob would say, “Patrick, your genius is showing!” As usual, Nate’s genius gets him into all kinds of trouble! Author: Lincoln Peirce

Big Nate Out Loud

Big Nate Out Loud

Big Nate Out Loud

Big Nate is the Wimpy Kid…only not wimpy. Nate is loud and confident and ready to bend the world HIS way. I really laughed reading Big Nate’s books Big Nate in a Class By Himself and Big Nate Strikes Again.

I knew that Big Nate actually started as a comic strip but I had never read it. Big Nate Out Loud is a compilation of several Big Nate comic strips – he is just as funny one strip at a time. Nate even tries to change school to make it more interesting: ”

Mr. Gavin, this worksheet on photosynthesis really isn’t working for me….We want to stop studying photosynthesis and start studying something GOOD!” (pages 57-58)

When that doesn’t work he tries to get Mr. Gavin to laugh. He cracks jokes, even science jokes, but nothing works until one of Nate’s classmates says,

Mr. Gavin, Nate thinks he has a good chance to make the honor roll this term. What do YOU think?” (page 62)

That works! Apparently Nate is not exactly honor roll material! He’s too busy trying to impress Jenny to concentrate on his school work. He also likes complaining and pranks and asking a lot of questions to keep the teacher off topic. If you think about it you’ve probably got someone in your class like Nate already…or maybe that someone is YOU!

Science of Scary Stuff – Screaming Cup; Screaming Balloon

Science of Scary Stuff – Screaming Cup; Screaming Balloon

Are You Afraid Yet?

This book is laid out like a comic book – it’s full of drawings, pictures and all kinds of freaky facts about the things that usually scare us: monsters, UFOs, vampires, mummies, ghosts, haunted houses, and lots more scary stuff. For each freaky thing you get an explanation of the science behind it – either why the thing appears the way it does or why the thing is impossible. There’s nothing like a little bit of hard science to take the chill out of scary stuff. Of course some of the stuff remains gross…even if it isn’t scary anymore. So beware! Author: Steven O’Meara

Amelia Rules! The Gym Class System

Amelia Rules! The Gym Class System

The Gym Class System

Amelia and her friends really do rule. Even though these are comic books the characters are not unrealistic but they sure are funny. I laughed outloud reading Amelia and The Gym Class System. It tells the story of Amelia’s first day at her new school.

SO THERE I AM, SURROUNDED BY WEIRDOS AND ALREADY SENT TO THE PRINCIPAL! I DIDN’T THINK THINGS COULD GET WORSE. THEN WE HAD GYM CLASS. (page 13)

Things DO get worse…Amelia goes to the principal’s office so many times he says, “I don’t believe I see my wife this often!” Author: Jimmy Gownley

The Heroes of Olympus Book 2: The Son of Neptune – Read Chapter One!

The Heroes of Olympus Book 2: The Son of Neptune – Read Chapter One!

The Son of Neptune

Well, I think this cover has fewer clues in it than the last one, but maybe you will notice something important that I don’t see. I liked the title of Chapter One – “Percy”!, but won’t give anything else away until you have a chance to read it too.

Read Chapter One
