Big Nate. He thinks big. He talks big. He acts big. And the Big Nate: I Can't Take It, featuring our mischievous middle-school hero, is big fun. The second collection of all-color Sunday Big Nate cartoons! Life can be stressful for Nate Wright. At school, Mrs. Godfrey makes every day a nightmare. At home, he's stuck between Ellen, his incredibly annoying older sister, and Dad, perhaps the most clueless parent of all time. And don't get him started on Gina, the ultimate teacher's pet, or Artur, the unassuming exchange student who bests him at every turn. It's enough to make even a can-do kid like Nate scream: "I CAN'T TAKE IT!"
There's never a dull moment in the prank-filled, detention-getting life of Big Nate! Nate Wright and his team are back with a vengeance. And a good thing, too, because the Cream Puffs are facing a lot of heat on the baseball field. Their opponents don't take them seriously. The sports section in the newspaper misprints Nate's name as "Not Wright," which is not right. And now, their star pitcher is sick with the flu, and you won't believe who's pulled from the bullpen. With the odds stacked against them, what are the poor Cream Puffs to do? Revenge is a dish best served with a soft-hearted pitcher who channels his inner panda bear, a side of vengeful girlfriends, and a dash of Big Nate mojo. Smear on your eye-black grease and join the rampage in this newest collection of comic--you don't want to miss this epic grudge match.
There's never a dull moment with Nate Wright in the picture. Whether getting caught playing table football in the library or raiding the teachers' lounge, Nate's antics are always hilarious and detention worthy! Sixth grade can be a tension convention for Nate Wright. His baseball team's just been given the lamest name in Little League history; he's on the verge of becoming know-it-all Gina's personal servant for a day; and Spitsy, the closest thing he has to a dog of his own, is in love with a CAT. Yup, Nate's up to his ears in stress. Luckily, the perfect remedy is close at hand: an empty plastic soda bottle. All Nate has to do is drum it gently against his head -- thunka, thunka, thunka -- and the pressures of dealing with Coach John, Mrs. Godfrey, and the terrifying Kim Cressly begin to fade away. Who knew an empty bottle could be so therapeutic? There's only one stress-buster that's better: reading Big Nate comics! So sit back, relax, and enjoy this latest collection, Thunka, Thunka, Thunka.
