PRLog - Jan. 4, 2012 - 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.

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.

Follow the quirky and imaginative adventures of ten-year-old Nathan Rockledge as his cartoons come to life.
Donalisa Helsley, who bought Nate Rocks the World, and gave it four out of five stars, had this to say:
"Nate Rocks the World is a fantastic and imaginative story that will keep your child engaged. Nate is a fourth grader who daydreams of being a hero. He escapes the trials and tribulations of his life by drawing. Karen does a wonderful job of blending his fantasies with his reality. The characters are so real and likeable. I love the conflict between him and his older sister.
The lesson in this story is that dreams can come true and that there is hero inside of even the most unlikely source. Although girls will love it too (my 9 year old daughter did) if you have a boy between 8 and 10 years old buy this book right now! We can't wait for the next book in this series!”
