Big Nate is back, starring in the third instalment of his own super-funny series. Big Nate is created by Lincoln Peirce, who inspired Jeff Kinney, author of 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'.

Big Nate's scout troop is fundraising and while door-to-door selling isn't really Nate's thing, there's nothing like a Grand Prize to get him motivated. Especially when the prize is an awesomely cool customised skateboard (and following an incident with a poodle and a bridge Nate is in need of a new set of wheels). Nate HAS to win the prize but to do that he must out-sell Artur - the luckiest boy at school.

Will Nate beat Artur to the prize (and possibly win over Jenny)?

Or will he just end up in detention?
