Review – Big Nate: Thunka, Thunka, Thunka

March 18, 2016


Sixth grader Big Nate is back and better than ever.  Nate is full of mischief and can’t seem to stay out of trouble, especially at school.  When Gina, his nemesis, bets him that he can’t go a whole week without getting a detention, he takes her up on it.  If he wins, he gets ten dollars; if Gina wins he has to be her personal servant for a whole day.  Has Nate bitten off more than he can chew?

Big Nate: Thunka, Thunka, Thunka by Lincoln Peirce is another fun book in the Big Nate series.  Nate is sarcastic and overly confident but I can’t help but like him.  Each page in this fun book is like a separate comic, but they all come together to tell a story.  There’s lots of humor and a few laugh out loud moments as well as some fun pop references.  Middle grade students on up will enjoy this fun book!

    I just got this one in the mail — looks adorable. I’ll have to see if I can get Booking Son to read it!

    I am now wondering if this is the old big Nate from the older books? My second graders used to love these books. I love this new updated one!

    I’ll have to keep this series in mind for when my son gets a little older. 🙂
