Children's LiteratureNate the Great is off to San Francisco to see his detective cousin, Olivia, and explore the city. But when he arrives, he gets a surprise. Olivia is not there to greet him. She is out trying to solve a case she has to wrap-up within three hours after Nate's arrival. Olivia is trying to find a missing joke book. When Nate receives a desperate call from the book's owner on Olivia's phone, he joins the case. Nate's search for the joke book takes him all over San Francisco, from its famous Golden Gate Bridge to a small pancake house full of sticky syrup. With his faithful canine sidekick, Sludge, by his side, Nate scours the city for the missing jokes. Will he find the joke book in time to save the day? And where will he find Olivia, whom he has not seen since he arrived? This is an entertaining romp through a California city filled with mishaps and adventure. The "Extra Fun Activities" section at the back of the book is a gold mine of information and projects about San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, and even a recipe for Joke Stew. Young readers both familiar with and new to the series will enjoy Nate's San Francisco adventure. 2002 (orig. 2000), Yearling/Random House, Ages 7 to 9.
