I think it is a bundle of fun, I recommend this book to everyone.
it is really interesting you should read it
I found this book boring, but little kids might like it. It was about a boy called Nate who thinks he's destined for greatness burt ends up in trouble all the time. I think this book kind of copied Diary of A Wimpy Kid but ended up failing. :-(
I think this book is more for younger ones as it doesn't have much to it. Me and my little brother read it two years ago when I was ten and he was eight I think it doesn't really appeal to 8+.You would expect it to be like the wimpy kid books but it isn't as good as those.
I loved this book it is one of the best books I have ever read. It's packed with funny characters.
I thought the book was very funny, it's really interesting and I can't wait to read some more of your books.
I think it is a really good book and I approve of this book for 10-11 year olds. It is funny and you just want to keep reading it.
I thought the book was alright . I read because of its good ratings but was disappointed .
Big Nate is the closest to Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Nate Wright is the main character. I really liked it it's a really good book.
I like Big Nate because he reminds me of Diary Of a Wimpy Kid and it is a good comedy. The things he does are really funny and amusing. And it is an easy to read book.
I think the book was good and funny
the first two pages of the book summed up how I'm like at school but the last couple of pages are the ones where I'm likely to be at most of the time.
I love this book because its and easy read with comic strips it was hard to find good books like this after I finished all of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Books. This book is super funny and hard to stop reading once you start!
Its a really good book. At points it made me laugh and had a good storyline. Would recommend this along with any other big Nate books. - A great read. ;)
it should be more boyish even tho im a girl
its a....ok book but for young people
I liked this book because it had a lot of houmour in it. The main character Nate was a very funny character.
My book was funny and a good book to read
it was really really good and I love it
Perfect for any diary of a wimpy kid reader.
this book was bare easy to read it were a comic it was an alright read and the story were good
best diary based comedy book since Diary of a Wimpy Kid if you like Diary of a Wimpy Kid you'll love this.
I like the book because it is very funny and cool!!!!!!!
its great and funny ha ha ha lol you should get it
I thought it was a great book I also like how Nate didn't stop getting detentions I think its a amazing book I have to read more how many have you published
Big Nate was a really good book. It gave a great insight into the life of a daring American school boy. With the book being wrote in the first person it showed Nate's feelings about school and his social life. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney, vice versa. The text layout and personality of the book made me think that I would recommend it to anyone under 12 years old as people older than 12 might not get the full humour due to the age and personality of Nate. I have gone on to read the rest of the series and am enjoying them as much as the one I got from Booked Up.
I think its a very funny and enjoyable book to read I would love to read the second one too. I like Nate because he is funny and he is always getting into trouble.
I though that this book was good because it was funny and very interesting. I found some of the words a bit hard but it was really good.
I think the book is really funny and its a 5 star review
it very good
i liked the book it was funny
I thought this book was absolutely amazing I can't wait to read the next one.
I think that Big Nate is a good book if you want a short read - and I really enjoyed it but I was expecting there to be more words and less cartoons
this book was very good I enjoyed reading it!
I love this book I can read it again and again and I will not get bored I love this book you should read it to children in different places
I really enjoyed reading about big Nate. In parts of the book it was really funny. I really enjoyed this book and it has encouraged me to buy the rest of the series. Lincoln Peirce is a very talented author!
Big Nate is really hilarious. It's about a boy and his friends who are always getting in to trouble with the Head Master, Mrs Czerwicki. I think that Big Nate is a book really worth reading.
I thought this book was very funny and it makes you want to read more. I also think the games in the back and the nicknames they make up are awesome I find them funny. Some points were boring, thought it would be like Diary of a Wimpy Kid but it wasn't as good. Still a good book .
This book is the best, I couldn't put it down
Big Nate-The Boy with the Biggest Head in the World is a really funny book the characters in the story are hilarious and the jokes made me laugh
This book is good
This book is really good.

Me and Nate are sooo alike I am somtimes naughty at school and he is too. My name is Nat and his name is Nate and loads more I enjoyed reading this book and looking forward to a sequel
I have read this book and this book is really funny also I have read the series like 'Big Nate Out Aloud'. This book should definitely give this a 5 star

wow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i love this book i am already on chapter 2 and i have just got it . it is a really good book . if you get it you will really enjoy it!!!!!!! x
brillant it is the best book in the world
funny and good
Its about a boy called Nate and hes just telling us about his day at school. He also tells about what he likes and hates about school. I Liked that it was a diary because he told his feelings. It was also funny and it was nicer to read a happy book. I didn't like it when it finshed because it was that good. The only thing I would make better is the blurb because I think it needs a bit more of a mystery to make you read it.
A very funny enjoyable book even though I have only read a couple of pages. fun for everyone
Big Nate belives he is destined for greatness so why is he having such a bad day. Nate attends P.S 38 and is always getting into troble. Befor Nate's first class he remembers he didn't bring his lunch and so his friend gives him a fortune cookie that says today you will surpass all others. then Nate gets a detention in every lesson and at lunch . Nate becomes the first person at P.S 38 to get 7 detentions in one day.
This book was hilarious!!! I loved it!!!!!!!!
This book made me laugh big time its a really good book. Just like Diary of a Wimpy Kid
I think Big Nate With The Biggest Head In The World is really good and fun to read also i think Lincoln Peirce is a good author. It is fun as well to read, I like it because at first i thought it look boring because of the cover, but then I thought never JUDGE a book by its front cover because no matter how it looks it could be amazing just like Big Nate With The Biggest Head In The World.
this book is very funny it had a lot of of funny names for teachers. Also it could of been a lot longer but is AMAZING!!
I loved this book I really wan't to know if there is a second book.

Its interesting and funny
this book is totally funny, and its just like diary of a wimpy kid. I like this author he's funny. I want to read all his books.
I really enjoyed Big Nate as it was funny, enjoyable and a simple easy book.I have got the second book of Big Nate and that is just as good!
I finished the book in three days because it was brilliant
Awesome! He gets in so much trouble, lot's of action. I recommed this book to 8+ or over. Have you noticed that there's a code on the very first page, look on that page and go onto page 18 figure out the code.
I think this book is great so far! I have to admit that this is exactly like Diary of a Wimpy Kid. This book is pretty funny too. I like it in the beginning when his dad pulls him out of bed. This legendary book is about a boy called Nate who is always getting into mischief. Read this book it is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!
Big Nate is AWESOME! it's funny and it's an interesting book too. This is for people who love funny stories.
Its a great book! I don't read much but this was great, it was really interesting and very funny. I enjoyed it a lot and can't wait to read the next book!
Recently I have read 'Big Nate the boy wirth the biggest head in the world' I really liked this book. I would recommend this book to 9-12 year olds. The character Nate is really funny and doesn't like to learn. I would really relate to this character and I bet some of you's will too! I would love to read the next two! :)
This book is great because of the story line of a middle school kid getting in to trouble but not on purpose so I've got the new one out and I keep on reading the new book sense it was great
I haven't read the whole book but what I have read is funny!
A good book so far I just started reading it and I really like it!! :)
the first page made me lol
This book is so funny and shows the life of an ordinary school boy who is sure he is destined for greatness, yet, does not take his school life seriously. so what do you think happens, yep, he gets in so much trouble. But, insted of feeling sorry for him, you just laugh away. I am a Wimpy Kid fan that is why I chose this absolutely fantastic book. I seriously recomend this book for those who want a good laugh!
Looks great, can't wait to read it
It is really funny and hard to put down even when I want to go on my XBOX
I like this book because it's really funny, and you can read it again and again without it getting old. I couldn't put it down
I really enjoyed this book but found it a bit too easy. I found it very similar to Diary of a Wimpy Kid which I also enjoyed.
I really enjoyed this book, it was funny and original. The main reason it was enjoyable for me was the cartoons in it and how the book was set out by the author. I loved this book so much, I've read it over and over again - even bought the follow up book in the series.
It was a very interesting book because it was about a boy my age and he is at secondary school.
I think Big Nate was hilarious packed with fun-filled laughs (not to mention the toxic porridge of doom!). Its a great book that everyone else should read for themselves. If you're a fan of Diary of a Wimpy kid, be sure to read this book with out of this world funny jokes. I hope there is a sequel because we want more! We salute you Jeff Kinney! And with him about these will be the books of the future along with the other categeories of book as well. See what you think about Big Nate The boy with the BIGGEST HEAD in the world.
We think BIG NATE is awesome because he gets in so much trouble. If you like Diary of a Wimpy Kid then you're going to love this book .This book is brilliant, we recommend it to any age, boy or girl.
Big Nate is an awesome book with great features! I can't believe how good this book is! Five Star definitely!!!
Big Nate is hilariously funny.I read the first one couldn't get enough of it! I'm currently reading my 4th Big Nate and love it! If you love Dairy of a Wiphmy Kid you'll love Big Nate [because they were writen by the same author ] and would recommend it to anyone! There are many more to chose from. Its probably the best book I've ever read! I'm so glad I read it! Please read it, its amazing!
I love it, it was so funny I gave it to my friend to read and she said she couldn't put it down it is one of the best books I have ever read and I can't wait to read the next one
I thought Big Nate was very funny, I think it is probably one of the top ten books I have ever read. I like how it's quite embarrassing for Nate and he has to clean his mess up quick.
I loved this book it's very exciting it's for everyone not just girls once I started reading it I couldn't stop, I was reading it all day every day!!!!! If I like it I'm sure you will too!!!!
I thought the book was really good because it was about a boy who is writting a diary, it was also really funny.
This book is really good!! I loved it, I would definitely read more books by Lincon Peirce. I would recommend this book to people nine and over, to both boys ad girls. The characters are really good. This book is one of the best I have ever read!!!!
Big Nate is one of the best books I have ever read! I read it in under two nights and I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I think that if you find it hard to find a good book go to Big Nate, it will make you a real book worm!!!
It is so funny and it's a book that makes you wanting to keep on reading. Its a book for girls and boys it has loads of pictures and speech bubbles but it's still a book that gives loads of information. It's funny because it explains all the teachers in a bad way. The title doesn't give any clues to the story. The end isn't what I was expecting so I think you should read it and give it a go.
hi, I think that Big Nate is a good and funny. Big Nate is about a boy who is in a school for probably 3/4 of the time. He hangs around with his friend Francis in school. He has a younger brother and a older brother. I would probably recemend for people aged 8-12 years old.!!! :)
Very funny and fun. Definitely for people who are big fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Well spread out and not too much writing. Very well thought out and the ending is very good.
Great I loved it I thought it had some great comedy in it and I loved it I found it one of the best books I have read
I think that Big Nate is funny good
This book is very funny I would recommend it
It was a really cool book I read it twice
