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! 

Shortly after a breakfast generously supplied with pancakes, Natethe Great got an urgent call from Annie.

"I lost a picture," said Annie. "Can you help me find it?"

"Of course," said Nate. "I have found lost balloons, books, slippers, chickens. Even a lost goldfish. Now I, Nate the Great, will find a lost picture."

"Oh, good," Annie said.

Nate, with the cool detachment of a Sam Spade, immediately plunges into his new and baffling case. Getting all the facts, asking the right questions, narrowing down the suspects. Nate, the boy detective who "likes to work alone," solves the mystery and tracks down the culprit. In the process he also discovers the whereabouts of Super Hex, the missing cat.

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,

Meet the Author

Born in Portland, Maine, in 1928, Marjorie Weinman Sharmat dreamed of becoming a writer. Little did she know that she would be the author of more than 70 books for children of all ages. Another of her childhood dreams, that of becoming a detective, has also been realized in her most popular Nate the Great series, begun in 1972.

Many of Sharmat's books have been Literary Guild selections and chosen as Books of the Year by the Library of Congress. Several have been made into films for television, including Nate the Great Goes Undercover, winner of the Los Angeles International Children's Film Festival Award. Nate the Great Saves the King of Sweden has been named one of the New York Public Library's 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing.

    I love Nate the Great

    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!

    Lessons

    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.

    What a wonderful find....

    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.
