Booklist, The Horn Book Guide

Junior Library Guild

  • Another entertaining entry in the popular Big Nate series. Though Nate’s band’s debut flops, the circumstances lead to a heartwarming apology to his longtime rival, Artur, and the vow that “Enslave the Mollusk will rock again!”
  • The inviting format has comics on every page, many of which are from Nate’s point of view. Readers will enjoy Nate’s humorous spin on bad luck (“Nate’s Real Life Lowlights” include his dentist exclaiming “Wow! Check out all those cavities!” during an exam, and a classmate loudly pointing out that Nate’s zipper is down during a book report presentation).
  • A convincing school story. Students may empathize with Nate’s experience of being unable to convince a tough teacher to be lenient about a missing assignment, even when he has a legitimate excuse. And P.S. 38’s transition to a “fitness zone” is cleverly described; one notable change is that the secretary’s jelly-bean jar is now filled with wasabi peas.
