Nate The Great, Where Are You?



These chapter books introduce beginning readers to the detective mystery genre. Kids can problem-solve with Nate, using logical thinking to solve mysteries!

Nate the Great and his dog, Sludge, have solved countless cases. For once, they would like to take a break from detective work. Especially since new cases—cases they do not want—await them: Rosamond wants to track down a walking turnip, Annie wants to find Fang’s missing canine toothpaste, Claude wants to locate something special (whatever that means), and Harry wants to solve the mystery of the dog with four tails. Everyone demands Nate’s attention, but all Nate wants is to escape. And after trying on disguises so that he and Sludge can go unrecognized, the sleuthing duo try to hide out in the woods. It’s not long before they hear familiar voices shouting, “Nate the Great, where are you?” Is it asking too much for the pancake-eating detective and his bone-chewing partner to get a day off?
