Ten-year-old Nathan Rockledge cannot catch a break. After all, life as a fourth-grader can be hazardous – what with science projects to deal with and recess football games to avoid. Everyone, including his best friend Tommy, seems to have bad luck when hanging around Nathan. Throw in an older sister who is a royal pain, a dad who is stuck in the past, and a mom who keeps trying to poison him with her awful cooking, and poor Nathan’s life as a fourth-grader appears to be completely doomed.

Armed only with his sketchpad, his imagination, and his wits, Nathan Rockledge navigates the perils of the fourth grade in style, to emerge heroic, as Nate Rocks, proving that even a ten-year-old can accomplish great things.

Review

Nate Rocks the World is another in the series although it can be read as a stand alone book. Give him a pencil and he goes into a different world. He becomes Nate Rocks    a super hero and can do anything! His imagination takes him on many adventures.

He is enlisted by the President to recover stolen spy equipment, by Captain Asteroid to fight Dr Evil. His mother cannot cook or sew and he has an older bossy sister with whom he shares a regular sibling relationship.

Funny and enjoyable, this book will be a big hit with 10 year olds. While boys may find it more appealing, it is a book that any 10 year old can read.
