    About the Author-
    • Lincoln Peirce (pronounced "purse") is a cartoonist/writer and New York Times bestselling author of the hilarious Big Nate book series (www.bignatebooks.com), now published in twenty-five countries worldwide and available as ebooks and audiobooks and as an app, Big Nate: Comix by U! He is also the creator of the comic strip Big Nate. It appears in over three hundred U.S. newspapers and online daily at www.gocomics.com/bignate. Lincoln's boyhood idol was Charles Schulz of Peanuts fame, but his main inspiration for Big Nate has always been his own experience as a sixth grader. Just like Nate, Lincoln loves comics, ice hockey, and Cheez Doodles (and dislikes cats, figure skating, and egg salad). His Big Nate books have been featured on Good Morning America and in the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and the Washington Post. He has also written for Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Lincoln lives with his wife and two children in Portland, Maine.

    Reviews-
    • AudioFile Magazine The BIG NATE comic strip characters are all here: persevering middle school student Nate Wright, unrequited love interest Jenny, perfect student Arthur, brainy Gina, teachers Mrs. Godfrey and Mr. Galvin, and Principal Nichols. Here creator Lincoln Peirce ventures into chapter-book format. The story starts with Nate receiving a fortune cookie that predicts, "Today you will surpass all others." But it doesn't take long to see where Nate's unfortunate day is headed! Fred Berman meets the challenge of bringing such a varied and well-known cast to life. He is an effervescent Nate--excitable, eager, always optimistic--and he tailors his intonation and pace to each of the other characters as well. The Wimpy Kid has company! A.R.
