Children's LiteratureIn this adventure Nate finds himself bodyguard to an owl. Cousin Olivia insists her owl Hoot needs Nate and his faithful dog Sludge to guard him on his trip to the owl doctor on the train (Hoot doesn't like to fly) because she's received a note suggesting her neighborhood might be more pleasant sans Hoot. Problems arise when Nate awakes from an impromptu nap on the train to find Hoot's cage empty. With a missing owl and several suspicious neighbors on board Nate has not one but two mysteries to solve. Weston's illustrations are well placed and entertaining, with a clue tucked in here and there. Nate the Great aficionados will be well pleased with his latest case. 2003, Delacorte Press, Ages 6 to 10.
