About the Author

Lincoln Peirce (pronounced "purse") is a cartoonist/writer and New York Times bestselling author of the hilarious Big Nate book series (www.bignatebooks.com), now published in twenty-five countries worldwide and available as ebooks and audiobooks and as an app, Big Nate: Comix by U! He is also the creator of the comic strip Big Nate. It appears in over three hundred U.S. newspapers and online daily at www.gocomics.com/bignate. Lincoln's boyhood idol was Charles Schulz of Peanuts fame, but his main inspiration for Big Nate has always been his own experience as a sixth grader. Just like Nate, Lincoln loves comics, ice hockey, and Cheez Doodles (and dislikes cats, figure skating, and egg salad). His Big Nate books have been featured on Good Morning America and in the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and the Washington Post. He has also written for Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Lincoln lives with his wife and two children in Portland, Maine.

Reviews

"Though Nate may not achieve the fame he seeks with his classmates, this sharp-witted and unflappable protagonist just might find it with readers."--Publishers Weekly "Thank goodness sequels are planned!"--Kirkus Reviews "Laugh-out-loud!"--School Library Journal "Nate's persistent good cheer and moxie make him a likeable new proxy for young misfits."--Booklist Praise for BIG NATE STRIKES AGAIN: "The millions of Wimpy Kid fans will be thrilled to find another cartoon buddy to read about, this good-hearted king of detention."--The Horn Book (starred review) Praise for BIG NATE STRIKES AGAIN: "Fans will be in heaven; thank goodness number three is already on the way."--Kirkus Reviews Praise for BIG NATE ON A ROLL: "Nate is often compared to Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid and will appeal to the same audience, he bears more resemblance to the tricksters of folklore...the interplay between text and pictures remains fresh, as does the distinction between Peirce's cartoons and Nate's own cartoons."--The Horn Book "Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or of Nate himself will savor P.S. 38's most beleaguered hero. What carries the day are the zany illustrations and unflagging enthusiasm of Nate himself."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "This series will keep you laughing and rooting for Nate, no matter what."--Brightly Praise for BIG NATE ON A ROLL: "[T]he slickest of this series...On a roll indeed!"--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Many laugh-out-loud moments...There is so much to like here...The millions of Wimpy Kid fans will be thrilled to find another cartoon buddy to read about, this good-hearted king of detention."--Horn Book (starred review)
