{Review} Nate Rocks the World (Book 1) by Karen Pokras Toz

Nate Rocks the World (Book 1)
by Karen Pokras Toz
Released: 2011
Genre: Fiction- Children
How I got it: Received a copy from the author

Nate Rocks can do it all: part super-hero, part all-star athlete, part rock-star… part fourth-grader?
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: This is a cute book. Nate is a 10 yr old boy in 4th grade who likes to draw. He also seems to have a very active imagination. The book follows Nate as he deals with day to day things like his sister, school and friends.
It's a good story, perfect length for a young reader. Kids can relate to what Nate's going throught and maybe learn how to deal with some things. I'll be passing this one on to my daughter to see how she likeds it. But for me it was a fun quick read.
