In Book 4, Nate is back in action. This time, dare-devil Nate’s quest to achieve his destiny (you know...greatness) lands him in the hospital with a broken bone. His family and friends are eager to help him cope, but they soon tire of his increasingly ridiculous demands. Meanwhile P.S. 38 is in competition with their biggest school rival and Nate wants to save the day.
Will Nate catch a break this time? Or will he be sent to detention, AGAIN?
Somehow he sails through. Because Nate’s destined for greatness.
About the Author
Lincoln Peirce began creating comics in the 6th grade (just like Big Nate!). He went on to teach art at a New York City High School. Lincoln created the cartoon-strip character Big Nate in 1991, naming the character after a nickname he gave his older brother as a kid. He lives in Portland, Maine in the US and as well as creating Big Nate comic strips and books, he hosts a local radio show.
"Lincoln Peirce is one of my cartooning heroes, and BIG NATE ranks as a comics classic. Year in and year out, Big Nate is among the best comics on the funny page." Jeff Kinney, author of `Diary of a Wimpy Kid'.
