Can you handle it? Nate Rockledge can. No matter the situation, his imagination has the power to whisk him away and clue him in on some excellent ideas. And, with the 5th grade class trip to New York City coming up, he needs plenty of them, because it is uncertain that there will be enough money to fund the trip. With his best friend, Tommy, by his side, there's nothing that they can't accomplish, as long as his annoying older sister, Abby, and that rotten Lisa Crane stay out of the way. After a few flopped attempts, Nate and Tommy are even more determined to raise the money that is needed to go to New York, and the ideas begin to take shape. Nate's pencil transports him into some dangerous situations on paper, giving him the angles he needs to see the real picture. Will Nate and Tommy find a way to raise the funds to go to NYC? Will everyone end up in the hospital from Nate's mom's cooking? What ideas will they come up with for successful fundraising projects? You will have to read this awesome book to find out!
Nate Rocks the School by Karen Pokras Toz is a cool story. I think Nate is someone I would definitely be friends with, and I had fun following along with him as he tried to figure out ways to make money. This series is one of my favorites out there today. I would recommend this book to kids ages 9 and up. It's a great story with lots of creativity, and a few twists and turns that will make you laugh out loud and keep you on the edge of your seat. Check it out if you want to read something excellent!
