Available Oct 14: Big Nate: The Crowd Goes Wild!bignate

**** 4/5 stars

Big Nate is a popular book series for boys – and The Crowd Goes Wild! is right up there with all the others.

Recommended readers:

  • 8-10 year olds 0r grades 2-4
  • Boys usually who like to read Captain Underpants, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and other boy stuff

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 3/5 for characters
  • 3/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall


Ryder is 8 years old and starting 3rd grade. He loves to read lots of boy stories. Here is his unedited review:

I like Big Nate because it is really funny and it has lots of action.From a scale of   0-10 I would  rate it at  a 9 because Big  Nate is a  cool comic.


I’m a fan of any book that my child loves and since my son has read every book in the Big Nate series, it’s easily an automatic 3 star. With Ryder’s top rating, we’ll give it a 4. To get a perfect rating for a children’s book, it would need to be rereadable, somewhat educational and include life lessons. In reading Big Nate myself, it’s definitely for short attention spans … the book is a series of comics combined (for my generation think Calvin and Hobbes) into one book. So there’s really hundreds of short stories in this book and anything to get our kids into a book is good in my eyes!
