Author(s): Lincoln Peirce
Big Nate is back starring in the second 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 has got his heart set on leading his sports team to victory! But it won't be easy. He's stuck with Gina, his all time enemy and really rubbish player. Worse yet they have to work together on the class special project which means Gina's allowed to call Nate -- AT HOME! Gina is at the top of Nate's list of THINGS I CAN'T STAND -- but will she stand in the way of his greatness? Will Nate win or lose? Pass or fail? Or fall asleep in science and end up in detention again?
"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.
