Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The original story in this series has been reissued in a 30th Anniversary edition. Nate remains one of the "greats" in children's literature, a fun character whose stories are fun—and easy—to read. Nate's friend Annie calls, enlisting his aid in finding her missing painting of her dog. Having just finished his favorite breakfast of pancakes, Nate dons his Sherlock Holmes-like hat, his trench coat, and his rubbers and heads over to Annie's. He carefully examines the clues, redirects himself after a false lead makes two hours of digging a waste of time, and eventually discovers the missing painting. Simont's expressive watercolors show Nate's cool determination, provide visual clues for beginning readers, and add humor to the book. All kids deserve to know Nate! 2002 (orig. 1972), Delacorte Press,

Nate the Great books started my addiction to mystery books. I can remeber the day I first found a Nate the Great book in the library. I loved everything about it - Rosamund, Fang the dog, and all those pancakes. Great books!

This books show how good it is to pay attention to details and follow steps to find out how things could have happened in this story or how did something disappear. Is great how this author brings this information and teaches the children a valuable lesson without really making it look like a lesson.

I adore mysteries and have since my first Trixie Belden at age seven. My grand daughter has been slow to read but since we are a reading family she has almost been forced into our passion. She found this in her first grade library and read it completely through in one sitting, turned it in and took another out. She likes Nate and she loves the fact that we both read mysteries. My Mother is the "book grandma" and has always sent books for any occassion. I told Mother to go ahead and get the whole series for her and then send them out when she wants to give Abby a prize.

I am a little old for this but it's a rally fun collection of stories. I would recommend it for ages 4-8. Even older kids would enjoy it. Get an audio version for kids who can't read. And have a happy 4th of July! &#22265
