"Big Nate: Out Loud" by Lincoln Peirce
Lincoln Perice's Big Nate Out Loud was not a disappointment. This book is a collection of comic strips that were originally published in newspapers. I read this one on my kindle was was very pleased to find that it was formatted in a way that was easy to read (I have come across several books that are formatted horribly and are nearly unreadable). Big Nate always has some grand scheme up his sleeve- from figuring out how to organize his locker (hypnosis seems like a good plan) to helping his father plan for a 10K marathon. He never fails to make me laugh. There's not a whole lot can say about these books other than I really enjoy them. Nate is a very realistic character. He's often getting into mischief and trying to get out of doing homework but is overall good at heart. It's yet another set of books that I highly recommend for reluctant readers. If you haven't already picked up one of the books featuring Nate, you missing out. Give them a shot- you won't regret it!
