Big Nate Out Loud

1449407188 : Big Nate Out Loud
ISBN: 1449407188

 
Author: Lincoln Peirce

Big Nate, a.k.a. middle schooler Nate Wright, is eleven years old, four-and-a-half feet tall, and the wunderkind creation of cartoonist Lincoln Peirce. Nate is also the star of six novelized books to be published by HarperCollins, the first of which debuted on the New York Times children’s best-seller list. Big Nate Out Loud collects Peirce’s Big Nate strips, originally published only in newspapers and online at comics.com.

For those not familiar with Big Nate, think Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Calvin and Hobbes. Nate is a self-described genius and a sixth-grade Renaissance man equipped with only a #2 pencil and the unshakable belief that he is destined for greatness (a fortune cookie told him so). He fights a daily battle against overzealous teachers, undercooked cafeteria food, and all-around conventionality. He’s the original rebel without a clue, alternately abrasive and endearing to classmates and teachers alike. Throughout Peirce’s Big Nate Out Loud, Nate blazes an unforgettable trail through the sixth grade at P.S. 38, earning straight As in laughs (and numerous detentions) along the way.

ISBN: 1770460136

 
Author: Denys Wortman

A rescued archive of vintage New York City from a forgotten ash can artist

After cartoonist, educator, and editor James Sturm discovered the vintage book Mopey Dick and the Duke, he set off to find out more about the author, the deceased and unknown cartoonist Denys Wortman. Sturm immediately took note of the masterful drawings?casual, confident, and brimming with personality?and wondered how this cartoonist escaped his radar. After some online sleuthing, Sturm connected with Wortman?s son, who relayed that an archive of more than five thousand illustrations was literally sitting in his shed in dire need of rescuing. For more than thirty-five years, the illustrations had been fighting such elements as hungry rodents, rusty paper clips, and even a blizzard. Wortman?s son also had drawers full of his father?s correspondence, including letters and holiday cards from William Steig and Walt Disney. Original artwork by artists and personal friends?including Peggy Bacon, Milt Gross, Isabel Bishop, and Reginald Marsh?were also saved. The fact that Wortman?s luminary peers held him in the highest regard, coupled with his artistic prowess, makes his absence from both fine art and comics history puzzling. So Sturm and Brandon Elston set out to create a beautiful tribute to the forgotten master.

Denys Wortman?s New York is not only a tribute to Wortman; it is a tribute to New York, the city that sparked Wortman?s voracious creative output. From coal cellars to rooftops, from opera houses to boardinghouses, Wortman recorded the sailors, dishwashers, con artists, entertainers, pushcart peddlers, construction workers, musicians, hoboes, society matrons, young mothers, secretaries, and students who collectively made the city what it was and is today.
