Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4 --Miniature detective Nate the Great has yet another case to solve. Rosamond turns a phone message from Pip's mother into a music lesson with a secret meaning and Nate steps in to solve the mystery. The most important clue--that the message is a musical note--has Nate baffled. Although led astray by a singing dog, harmonizing cats, and a band concert, he manages to meet his deadline and solve the riddle. Cleverly written, using clear and simple language, the Sharmats have created another surefire hit. Simont's color and black-and-white watercolors reinforce and enrich the verbal clues and the humor in the text. This is a series that's perfect for readers who have moved beyond controlled vocabulary beginning books but who are not yet ready for chapter books. --Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Pub . Schools, VA
