Unrated Critic Reviews for Big Nate Goes for Broke

Parents might cringe at some of the stereotyping (the books opens with an illustrated put-down of clubs for kids who like math, knitting, fantasy, and so on) but kids will laugh out loud -- and recognize that Nate, like almost every 12-year-old, feels like an outsider, too.
