Big Nate is taking it from the top!-the top of the trouble makers's list!
Big Nate is 11 years old, four-and-a-half feet tall, and the all-time record holder for detentions in school history. He is a self-described genius and a 6th grade Renaissance man. Middle school kids everywhere can relate to Big Nate's daily battles against overzelaous teachers, undercooked cafeteria food, and all around conventionality.
