Big Nate's scout troop is fundraising and while door-to-door selling isn't really Nate's thing, there's nothing like a grand prize to get him motivated. Especially when the prize is an awesomely cool customised skateboard (and following an incident with a poodle and a bridge Nate is in need of a new set of wheels).
"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.
