What's a Little Noogie Between Friends?
(Turtleback Books, Feb. 28, 2017)
Big Nate is in a class by himself. This feisty 11-year-old holds the school record for detentions, but that doesn't stop him from dreaming big! Nate Wright s a winner--in his own mind, anyway. So when things go wrong, he s at a loss to explain why. How does his soccer team manage to lose to a school with a sixty-game winless streak? What s he doing at the movies on a Friday night . . . with GINA? And why, oh why is one of his classmates (hint: she s Nate s dream girl) suddenly moving 3,000 miles away? It s all enough to make a sixth-grade superstar feel . . . well, not so super. But you can t keep a good man down, and Nate s still got pals like Teddy, Francis, and Chad to cheer him up. Sure, their methods aren t always warm and fuzzy, but Nate doesn t mind. After all, what s a little noogie between friends?"
