Kate the Great is an excellent book and I cannot wait until book two is out. Suzy Becker outdid herself on this great story. All the story was very well-described, like when Kate described the students' zombie trance that happens in school. It's like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, in that it includes cartoon-like pictures and funny comments on the side. This book is so funny it made me laugh, and it will make you laugh, too. I would recommend this book for ages eight and up.
