“Today you will surpass all others.” That is the fortune Nate reads when he cracks open his fortune cookie. How will he surpass the rest of his classmates and make it a perfect day? Can Nate make Mr. Galvin laugh for the first time ever? Can he eat the most slimy cafeteria green beans in 10 minutes? Fans of Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series will love Lincoln Peirce’s Big Nate: In a Class by Himself, a combination of funny text and comics. Nate is a regular kid who wants to be extraordinary. He is willing to do just about anything to be the best. He especially loves to make people laugh. But all that his teachers and principal see is a misbehaving kid who needs an afternoon of detention. But Nate is one cool dude who knows he is fantastic. After all, a fortune cookie told him so! A fun twist at the end will have readers laughing along with Nate. This special edition includes an extra 16 pages of winter fun – Big Nate’s Holiday Hullabaloo! Check out Nate’s Naughty and Nice list, his Christmas wish list, Gina’s Grinch list, a mix ‘n’ match game, a word search, messages in code and a special holiday comic. Look for Nate’s next book, Big Nate Flips Out.
