Big Nate in a Class by Himself by Lincoln Peirce
You can't help but compare this book to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. It's a heavily-illustrated cartoonish story of an middle schooler for whom nothing is going right. Big Nate, who is a 6th grader, receives a fortune in a fortune cookie that says "You will surpass all others." As his day goes on and he gets in trouble in every class in school he wonders how in the world he is going to surpass anyone. Although it wasn't all that memorable for me as an adult reader, it was quick and fun and probably best for kids 6th grade and younger.
