Big Nate is back in the fourth instalment of his own super-funny series. Big Nate is created by Lincoln Peirce, who inspired Jeff Kinney, author of 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'. When you've got a head the size of Big Nate's then losing is not an option. But Nate's school P.S. 38 gets beaten by arch-rivals Jefferson Middle School at EVERYTHING. Whether it's sports, maths or a snowball fight in the park, P.S. 38 just can't ever seem to win. So when their school springs a leak and they have to join forces with Jefferson for a while, Nate and his friends are mortified. What degrading loses must they face now? Or can Nate find something that P.S. 38 can actually win at?
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.
