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
Elizabeth Bush
The intrepid detective returns for his fifteenth case in this beginning chapter book. Bed linen has gone astray. Nate's friend Rosamond will not be able to sleep until her cat's "slashed and shredded, shrunken and shriveled" pillowcase is recovered. Neither, apparently, will anyone else. Leaving a note for his mother, Nate follows a trail of clues through the dead of night, questioning suspects, interviewing the owner of Uncle Ned's Day and Night Diner, eliminating a red herring, and finally unraveling the mystery. The crisp, clipped narrative is both a clever parody of the hard-boiled detective story genre and a boon to beginning readers. Simont's line-and-watercolor illustrations harmonize perfectly with the tale's understated humor. The necessary clues are in place, and young sleuths can race Nate and his sidekick dog, Sludge, to the mystery's solution.

    Highly recommended for new readers

    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.
