Overview

These chapter books introduce beginning readers to the detective mystery genre. Perfect for the Common Core, kids can problem-solve with Nate, using logical thinking to solve mysteries! 

It's two o'clock in the morning when the telephone rings and Nate the Great learns that Rosamond's pillowcase is missing. She needs it now because her cat, Big Hex, likes to sleep on it.

Outside it is damp, dark, and dreary, but a good (yawning) sleuth knows that the hunt must go on. Can Nate the Great find the missing piece of laundry before the sun comes up, and before his bedroom slippers wear out?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-This 15th addition to the series will not disappoint fans. Nate is awakened by a phone call in the middle of the night. His friend Rosamond needs his help-her cat's pillowcase has disappeared, and the feline, Big Hex, is pacing and keeping her awake. So that all concerned may get some sleep, the young detective sets out to solve the case. This is another well-told, humorous mystery that young readers will be able to solve if they zero in on Sharmat's clues. Simont's lively, realistic watercolors correlate with the action in the text. A satisfying, easy-reader mystery.-Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA

This book is excellent for 1st-3rd grade readers who are just starting. Good story line. My 4th grade nephew loves to read it to his 5 year old sister who enjoys the stories. Activities at the end of the book and a definite plus feature.
