Big Nate: The Crowd Goes Wild!

Soon to be an animated series with Paramount+ and Nickelodeon!

Nate Wright is one of a kind. Whether he's fast-talking his way out of trouble or unleashing the contents of his locker on unsuspecting classmates, Nate does it with gusto. And every time he swings into action . . . THE CROWD GOES WILD!

11-year-old Nate Wright steps up to the plate! In this collection of comics from The New York Times best-selling series, everyone’s favorite sixth-grade prankster takes a swing at entrepreneurship with a “Free Cold Water” stand, campaigns against Social Studies as Class President, and breaks out of a batting slump. While Nate’s big ideas aren’t always grand slams, he and his friends can turn any day into a win.

Based on cartoonist Lincoln Peirce’s hilarious childhood memories and teaching experiences, Big Nate is a home run for readers everywhere.
