Big Nate flips out by Lincoln Peirce

Harper Collins, 2013. ISBN 9780007478279.
(Ages: 10+) Highly recommended. Big Nate flips out is a funny, comic-style novel featuring two friends, Nate and Francis. It includes text and comics to tell the story and is funny and engaging. Reminiscent of the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Nate tells his story with a lot of humour and the author uses descriptive language to help engage the reader. I would highly recommend it for boys aged 10+.
Nate and Francis take over the Yearbook Committee and as usual, Nate, the messy one, gets his best mate, Francis, the organised one, in trouble. Nate has lost the camera? Nate needs to fix it and to fix it he needs to change. How? With hypnotism of course! Nate becomes a tidy freak overnight while another friend investigates the missing camera. But, is being neat all the time going to help him get his friendship with Francis back on track? Who knew being so neat could be so boring!
