Author(s): Lincoln Peirce
Big Nate is back the fifth instalment of his own super-funny series. Big Nate is created by Lincoln Peirce, who inspired Jeff Kinney, author of 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'. Big Nate is flipping out! Everyone knows N-A-T-E does NOT equal N-E-A-T! And when Nate's sloppiness gets out of hand, his best friend Francis gets in serious trouble. Can Nate clean up his act? Or will he flip out first?
Praise for the Big Nate series: "Lincoln Peirce is one of my cartooning heroes, and BIG NATE ranks as a comics classic. Year in and year out, Big Nate is among the best comics on the funny page." Jeff Kinney, author of DIARY OF A WIMPY KID.
Lincoln Peirce began creating comics in the 6th grade (just like Big Nate!). He went on to teach art at a New York City High School. Lincoln created the cartoon-strip character Big Nate in 1991, naming the character after a nickname he gave his older brother as a kid. He lives in Portland, Maine in the US and as well as creating Big Nate comic strips and books, he hosts a local radio show.
