I hope that when kids open a Big Nate book and see all the artwork, all the comic-strip symbols and language, the endpapers…that they'll think, "This looks like a fun book to read."

City Book Review

Nate has a few problems – the new kid at school, Artur, is perfect at everything and is going with the girl Nate is crazy for, Nate’s dad is the king of discipline, and Nate seems to be just about the unluckiest guy on the planet.

Nate's hatred for Artur is rooted in jealousy, and the fact that Artur seems like a nice kid and is well-liked only reinforces Nate's view.
