Horn Book
Big Nate's third (mis)adventure finds the sixth grader in fierce albeit one-sided competition with all-around good guy Artur for both a new skateboard and the heart of Jenny, Nate's secret crush. The interplay between text and pictures remains fresh, as does the distinction between Peirce's cartoons and Nate's own cartoons, which make up in chutzpah what they lack in finesse.
School Library Journal
Gr 3&11;6&12; Big Nate is used to being the shining star of his scout troop, but now Artur-Mr. Perfect-is stealing his spotlight. Not only that, but it is Artur's fault that Nate has detention, and it is his fault that a certain obnoxious girl thinks Nate has a crush on her. The sixth grader is fed up and determined to show that he is better than Mr. Perfect by outselling Artur for the troop's fund-raiser. At stake is more than Nate's reputation-the winner also receives a new skateboard. This series is a great answer for kids looking for "Wimpy Kid" read-alikes, and Nate delivers the comic relief and action appealing to reluctant readers. The comic-strip illustrations throughout add to the fun. This book delivers what fans have come to expect.&12; Elizabeth Swistock, Jefferson Madison Regional Library, Charlottesville, VA
Starred Review for Kirkus Reviews
Sixth grader Nate Wright needs a new skateboard...but more than that he needs to beat perfect Artur at SOMETHING. Artur has a nifty foreign accent. Artur has Jenny, the girl Nate likes. Artur charms adults and kids alike, and Nate can't stand it. What makes it double awful is that Artur is such a nice guy. Infuriating. But Artur IS to blame for Nate's losing his skateboard...indirectly. Artur dripped paint in Nate's eye, causing Nate to knock over the ladder Artur was on. Nate got detention (Artur didn't), and Nate had to hurry on his skateboard to get to Timber Scouts. In the hurry, Nate was clothes-lined by a lady and her poodle, and his board sailed into the river. There is a chance he can win a new board by selling (dorky) wall hangings door to door for Scouts. He just has to beat the new kid in the troop...Artur! Peirce's third Big Nate chapter book, starring Big Nate (from the comic strip of the same name), is the slickest of this series of hybrid comics-and-text chapter books. Nate's an artistic, realistic, funny narrator. On a roll indeed! Plenty of Nate's homemade comix and panels from his life pepper the story; fans will cheer at the announcement of the fourth volume at the end. (Graphic/fiction hybrid. 7-11)
