Rosamond is visiting Scandinavia when she loses something. She wants Nate the Great to find it, even though he doesn’t know what she lost, what country she lost it in, or when she lost it. And he’s thousands of miles away. But if Nate doesn’t take the case, Rosamond plans to hire the King of Sweden. Nate doesn’t want Rosamond to bother the poor king. And he does want the chance to solve his first-ever international case. Can Nate find whatever Rosamond lost without leaving his neighborhood?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Detective Nate gets his first international case when a friend loses something--he doesn't know what--while visiting Sweden. Ages 6-9. May Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3In the latest addition about this popular detective, Nate solves his first international case without ever leaving his neighborhood. He receives a cryptic postcard from his friend Rosamond. She writes that she has lost something during her Scandinavian vacation and that if Nate refuses to find it she will pester the King of Sweden for help. The lost item is tiny, lives in dark places, and has a long nose. Nate and his trusty dog, Sludge, begin visiting Rosamond's friends in search of clues. A picture examined under a magnifying glass leads him to believe that the lost item is a troll. He goes to the library for information on trolls and then back to his house for his trademark brain foodpancakes. Deductive reasoning, combined with astute observations of Sludge's burial of a bone, finally saves the day. Although Simont's appealing watercolor illustrations provide visual clues, this case is significantly more difficult than others in this series. This particular volume is for avid fans rather than novices. Initiates may need more familiarity with the personalities of these distinctive characters to grasp some of the wry humor. Advise children to begin with earlier "Nate the Great" books and return to this one for full enjoyment.Jackie Hechtkopf, Talent House School, Fairfax, VA

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.
