Two comic book series kids (and parents) will love! I'm a huge advocate of let them read what they want to read-- comics, magazines, newspaper sports pages, anything that will keep them interested and entertained. These are two wonderful, funny comic book series that I enjoy just as much as my son.
The first book in the series is selected comic strips originally published in newspapers, Big Nate From the Top. The next books in the series are: Big Nate in a class By Himself, Big Nate Strikes Again and Big Nate out Loud. There is also a comic strip collection: I Smell a Pop Quiz and a book titled Big Nate Boredom Buster: Super Scribbles, Cool Comix and Lots of Laughs (this is more of a how to book with doodles, secret codes and comics where the reader fills in the blanks.)
