Gr 1-3-When Nate's mom cannot find her recipe for his favorite monster cookies, the boy detective immediately sets out to find it. With the help of his dog, Sludge, Nate combs his home and neighborhood for clues. On his search, the supersleuth questions a cast of characters with whom readers of the series will be familiar, such as Annie, Oliver, and Rosamond. Using his problem-solving skills, Nate is finally able to figure out where the elusive recipe for Strawberry Draculas, Chocolate Frankensteins, and Cinnamon Werewolves was hiding. The short chapters and quick resolution of the mystery will be appreciated by beginning readers. Weston's colorful illustrations, done in the style of the series' original illustrator, Marc Simont, provide visual clues and break up the text nicely. Nate's many fans will eagerly sink their teeth into this treat.-Maura Bresnahan, Shawsheen School, Andover, MA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

It's hard to find things for a struggling reader, especially a boy, that's not about superheroes or makes them feel "stupid". My son loves the Nate the Great series because he feels like he's part of the story, the writing is rhythmic and he's entertained. His reading scores have actually gone up thanks to books like Nate the Great. He's struggled though with a few of the names in the story.

Do you like Nate the great book? I hate Nate the great book. Nate the great mom lost her recipe. In this book called Nate the great and the monster mess by Marjorie. And he is a decective and solves case. This book was pointless because it did not have a lot of details. For example Nate the great said¿ I love those monsters ¿cookies. This quote shows that this book has no details. As I read I wanted to know. Why the cookies were special. Nate the great all so said ¿I never solved a case for my mother¿ this book was pointless. He only wants to solve a case for his mom because he never did that be fore in his life. If I would rate this book I will give it a 0. I will not recommend this book to anyone. Not even to a baby.
