Mrs. Shipulski! You told me there weren't any new girls in sixth grade!
But I just MET one!
Nate, there's only one new student at P.S. 38 who's a girl...
...and she's in SEVENTH grade.
An OLDER WOMAN!

you may still do it, Nate!
Come on, Nate! You’re not gonna let that fact stop you, are you?
Don’t complain Nate! You are fortunate.
Oh wow. Shes like the same height as nate tho
ASK WHAT HER NAME IS NATE!!!
Dun dun duh
Lionel Richie anyone?
Nate, Go ahead anyways
Uh, oh… Kids at that age might as well think that someone a year older than them is going to sit on the porch and hand them a Werther’s Original®!
Don’t worry Nate, you’re not a normal 6th grader you should have graduated by now.
Tbh I´m guessing it will end in half a failure. That she ends up with someone from her own grade, but they stay friends.
Ok so Mystery Girl is a grade older than you. That doesn’t mean you can stop trying. Like that time you fell in love with Sasha Coshen, or Mrs. Godfrey’s niece. Never give up Nate!
She could be younger than Nate but has skipped a grade or two. In that case, she would be smarter (in terms of education) than Nate or Gina.
Erik Estrada, even (the Joyce Miller year, that is…..)!!
Ben Franklin would approve – in a letter of advice to a young man, he recommended seeking out an older woman for a mistress.
a-hem….just saying….NAILED IT weeks ago…..just sayin’
Must be a different school system than the one I know. Grade school was up to Grade Six and Junior High was Grades 7, 8 and 9. There was a vast gulf between them, and they were not in the same school.
I couldn’t help imagine a “dun dun dahhhhh” drama riff to my mind’s ear when I scanned in the last panel.
Ask the girl to dance, Nate. Ask the girl to dance.
I sure hope he hooks up with this girl hs dserves to have a sweetie to guide him.
She’s the same height as Nate!The comic says Nate is the shortest kid in 6th grade.
Lol, I don’t think Nate has ever looked like that in that last panel! O_O And Nate, don’t worry! If she really likes you, she’ll like you no matter what grade you’re in :)
You found today’s comic!:)
Thank you in participating in the Big Nate comic scavenger hunt!(Starts at the first comic)
Bet names something stupid like getrude
I mean Gertrude
although i can see gina or randy being involved in this due to trudy’s vibe in the fourth panel
Go to January 7th 2009
uh she’s only a few months older than you, nate.
Funny that Nate is in 6th grade and he’s 4’6 and people think he’s a midget but I. In fifth grade, and I’m 4’10 and people call me a midget
I know her name. Want me to tell you?
This just got complicated…
dun dun duh!
