From the Back Cover
Big Nate is in a class by himself! Nate knows he's meant for big things. Really big things. But life doesn't always go your way just because you're awesome. Trouble always seems to find him, but Nate keeps his cool no matter what. He knows he's great. A fortune cookie told him so. For fans of the hilarious Diary of a Wimpy Kid series: Here comes Big Nate, accidental mischief maker and definitely not the teacher's pet.
