Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Nate, the young detective who dresses like Sherlock Holmes and solves mysteries for his friends and neighbors is back. Only this time, he is not helping someone else. This mystery is much more personal. Sludge, his dog and constant companion, has disappeared. Nate had just gone into a large department store for a moment to buy a new dog dish. Dogs were not allowed in the store, so Sludge was waiting by the door. When Nate came out, Sludge was gone. Annie provided the first clues. Sludge had gone into the store and he was wet. Nate gathered more clues from the salesman in the hat department and from Rosamond, who was trying on a nightshirt. After checking with Lost and Found, Nate headed for the bed department. He found a dog there, but it was not Sludge. Nate went back to the pet area. No Sludge. He sat on a dog mat to think and then he knew exactly where to go. Readers who are familiar with Nate know about his love for pancakes and, of course, so does Sludge. Weston's illustrations are very similar to Marc Simont's, so the book has the familiar feel of the others in the series. Beginning readers will relish these further adventures of Nate and his beloved dog.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Nate the Great returns in yet another installment of this beginning chapter-book series. This time his faithful sidekick, Sludge, is the big mystery-when the young detective comes out of the department store, his dog isn't waiting where he should be, and he's either missing or lost. Sludge ends up going to the one place that Nate loves, the cafeteria, and there they have their happy reunion. Weston's watercolor illustrations show the youngster's worry and determination, and lend humor to the story. Fans of this series will definitely enjoy the continuing adventures of Nate, Sludge, and their friends.-Christina F. Renaud, Attleboro Public Library, MA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Beginning Readers' favorite young pancake-eating detective is back with his latest case. Nate and his dog Sludge are a wonderful team-Nate depends on Sludge to help solve mysteries. But Nate is on his own this time, because Sludge is the case. When his trusty dog gets lost in the department store, Nate has to put the clues together by himself and try to think like a dog. With his friends Annie, Fang, and Rosamond telling him about the latest sightings of Sludge, Nate starts out on a search through the store. But each clue is a dead end . . . until Nate realizes he has to stop thinking like a dog, and start thinking like Sludge-the best detective dog in the business. Nate, Sludge, and all their friends have been delighting beginning readers for years. The familiar characters, basic plot, and illustrated pages of these simple chapter books build confidence in children who are just starting to read and who look forward to a new mystery. (Easy reader. 6-9)
