Poor Nate's Almanac is a column in the school's newspaper. It was based off Poor Richard's Almanac,written by Benjamin Franklin. It made an appearance in the novel Big Nate Strikes Again, and it also appeared once in a sunday comic.
The only customers of this product were Francis Pope and Teddy Ortiz, Nate’s friends. However, when the two realized how much effort Nate actually put into the books, they were outraged because they had been ripped off.
Nate likes Ben Franklin so much, he decided to make an almanac just like him.
