Big Nate′s scout troop is fundraising and while door-to-door selling isn′t really Nate′s thing, there′s nothing like a Grand Prize to get him motivated. Especially when the prize is an awesomely cool customised skateboard (and following an incident with poodle and a bridge Nate is in need of a new set of wheels.) Nate HAS to win the prize but to do that he must out-sell Artur -the luckiest boy at school.
Will Nate beat Artur to the prize (and possibly win over Jenny)?
Or will he just end up in detention!

About the Author
Lincoln Peirce (pronounced "purse") 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'.
