Review – Big Nate: Game On!

December 6, 2014

Big Nate Game On

Big Nate has it all going on – at least in his mind.  He puts a positive spin on everything to make himself look good.  Nate plays three sports – basketball, baseball, and soccer – and doesn’t excel at any of them but you’d never know that by talking to him.

Big Nate: Game On! is a graphic novel by Lincoln Peirce that is divided into three sections, one for each sport Nate plays.  Each page can stand on its own, but together, they tell a story.  With its full color illustrations, I found this book to be a delight!  I laughed at some of Nate’s antics and shook my head at others.

I’m sure middle grade readers, particularly those who enjoy sports, will adore this book!  If they’re not like Nate, they’re sure to know someone who is.  This book takes on some issues that are worth discussing as well, like sportsmanship and fair play.  Big Nate: Game On! would make a great holiday gift for a middle grade reader.

    I’ll have to get this one for Dylan. He loves Big Nate, even more so now that some of them are in colour!
