Class clown. Self-described genius. Mischief maker. Big Nate knows trouble. Nate may not be Joe Honor Roll, but he knows he's meant for BIG fun. He's always up for scribbling, games, jokes, laughs, and creating comics. And now YOU can join him!

For kids (and adults) who display Big Nate–like symptoms (uncontrolled doodling, wisecracking, and Cheez Doodle consumption, to name just a few), look no further. Big Nate Boredom Buster will blow your pants off! This paper-over-board activity book is filled to the brim with exciting activities for Nate fans of all ages. There is plenty of space for kids to get creative, and all the favorite characters from Nate's world are included—the know-it-all Gina, Nate's best buddies, Francis and Teddy, his rival, Artur, and his least favorite teacher, Mrs. Godfrey, aka Godzilla. With personality pop quizzes (which Big Nate character are you most like?), the fabulous fun 'o' meter, cosmic cookie fortunes, create your own comix, the "honor roll or not?" amazing maze, rock and roll rhymin', knockout knock-knock jokes, and much more, Nate's world pops off the pages with more than 500 black-and-white illustrations that you get to help create!

An awesome way to guarantee 100% relief from boredom—learn to doodle, draw, and write the Big Nate way!

Yes. This book is good. I wish I had a second copy of this book so I could do it all over again.

There are lots of scribbles being turned into something, and get Nate out of detention using the letters d, e, t, e, n, t, i, o, and n to make 25 words like dent, net, and not. But Artur is good at doing everything. He can even turn a scribble into something in one minute and fifty-nine seconds, the second before the bell rings. Nate's going to give you mazes like you need to get him from the start to the Cheez Doodles as the finish. Can you try that? And make comics like Invent-A-Comix.
