About the Book
There's never a dull moment with Nate Wright in the picture. Whether getting caught playing table football in the library or raiding the teachers' lounge, Nate's antics are always hilarious and detention worthy!

Sixth grade can be a tension convention for Nate Wright. His baseball team’s just been given the lamest name in Little League history; he’s on the verge of becoming know-it-all Gina’s personal servant for a day; and Spitsy, the closest thing he has to a dog of his own, is in love with a CAT. Yup, Nate’s up to his ears in stress. Luckily, the perfect remedy is close at hand: an empty plastic soda bottle. All Nate has to do is drum it gently against his head — thunka, thunka, thunka -- and the pressures of dealing with Coach John, Mrs. Godfrey, and the terrifying Kim Cressly begin to fade away. Who knew an empty bottle could be so therapeutic? There’s only one stress-buster that’s better: reading Big Nate comics! So sit back, relax, and enjoy this latest collection, Thunka, Thunka, Thunka.

My Take on the Book
This is such a great book that really captures the challenges of 6th grade. The realism is what draws my daughter to reading this. Well this, along with the humor that author Lincoln Pierce brings to the book too. I tend to love the entire story itself but even more is the illustrations / artwork that are shared too as they just explode off the page and the situations that Nate finds himself in tends to be just so funny. This was a great book that I cannot say enough good things about!
