Big Nate's Greatest Hitscollects three bestselling e-book only collections--Big Nate Makes a Splash, Big Nate Dibs on This Chair, and Big Nate Pray for a Fire Drill--in this super-sized, paperback edition. Nate Wright is a wisecracking 11-year-old who knows he's destined for greatness. The star of Big Nate, the daily and Sunday comic strip that made its debut in 1991, Nate's a sixth-grade chess prodigy, a self-described genius, and the all-time record holder for detentions in school history. He's often in hot water with his teachers and classmates, but Nate's winning personality and can-do attitude always make him a big hit with readers.
As a kid, cartoonist Lincoln Peirce began creating his own strips in the sixth grade, just like his beloved character Nate Wright. Peirce taught high school in New York City and has created several animated pilots for the Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. He lives in Portland, Maine, with his family.
