If you’ve got an older school-aged boy in the house, you may have already heard of Big Nate. The loveable sixth-grade hero of the Big Nate cartoon strip and book series may be a bit of a self-absorbed underachiever, but his goofy demeanour and love of pranks have made him a favourite of kids across North America. Now, just in time for the holidays, Big Nate is coming to bookshelves in a big way with the release of the hardcover collector’s book Epic Big Nate!
This beautiful book celebrates 25 years of the Big Nate comic strip with hundreds of cartoons specially selected by cartoonist Lincoln Peirce, information on the history and evolution of the comic over the years and an extensive Q&A with Peirce and his equally popular counterpart Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. While some of the book might be a little heavy for school-aged readers, the many cartoons will keep them entertained regardless and the book is sure to become a treasured heirloom in years to come.
Whether you’re a Big Nate follower yourself or you have a school-aged child that’s discovered the book series and become a new fan, I have a giveaway that you won’t want to miss! One lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader is going to win their very own hardcover copy of Epic Big Nate, a $50 value! To enter to win, just leave a blog comment about whether you or your child has read the Big Nate books or comics before.
I know that my oldest son is going to be so excited to find this book among his Christmas presents this year. He adores the Big Nate book series and all sorts of comics, so I’m sure this book will provide him with hours of entertainment. And since he also loves the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series, I have a feeling he’ll even be reading through the Q&A once he finishes with the comic strips! If you have kids that love Big Nate or know a young adult that grew up reading the cartoon strip, this beautiful book makes a great Christmas gift. Find it in book stores across North America now!
