Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3 Young readers who have enjoyed past adventures of Nate the Great are sure to like this new one. Nate is called upon to investigate the disappearance of Oliver's beach bag. He cleverly assembles tidbits of information and forms a logical and sat isfying solution to the mystery. Simont's sketchy illustrations alternate three-color art with gray wash. Although they are not elaborate, they complement the subtle hu mor of the text. The story is well-written and easy for primary children to follow. It is suitable both for independent reading and for reading aloud. The book will have particular appeal to young readers with a penchant for mysteries. Rose Valentino, Fairfax Elem .
