September/October: Big Nate, Great Minds Think Alike Grades 3-5

by Lincoln Peirce Year Published:

Some people don't understand Nate Wright, and he thinks he knows why: they're not smart enough. Nate's a sixth grade dynamo with a backpack full of brilliant ideas, but he's surrounded by people who just don't get it. His teachers keep throwing him in detention for no reason. His friends laugh at his attempts to set a new world record. And his dad becomes a neighborhood laughingstock by handing out soy nuts on Halloween.

If great minds really do think alike, maybe that explains Nate's problems: he's got the only great mind around.
