A book my 6 yr old loved, a little old for my preschoolers. A solid reading level 2 book, this reader has a good amount of advanced vocabulary words, but not so long that it discourages a new reader. Used it for his read out loud book, which was perfect. It took about 15 mins for him to read and had just enough new vocabulary words to make it challenging. Also, it was a fun and interesting story he could get into. He liked it so much, he asked for more by this author. Great reading book!

This is another entertaining story in the Nate the Great series by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat and Marc Simont. We've read most of these stories and our youngest really likes them. They are always fun, and always strange.

This story has an interesting format, with Nate speaking directly to the reader and including us into the detective work. It's a good mystery and our girls were excited because we figured it out. There are some fun pages at the end of the book, with detective tips, a puzzle and yum

Nate the Great books aren't that great. I hated them when I was a kid, yet I would always read them.The endings of the books were always the same, they figured out what or who did it.

Nate the Great books always made me fall asleep and always wasted my time. I would not recommend this book to anyone, especially little kids. If kids want real mystery, they should r ...more

This has to be one of my all time favorite Nate the Great books. Here you get a chance to solve the case before Nate and his friends do. Lots of clues, lots of clever twists and turns, and I STILL didn't figure it out before the end of the book. A really fun read!

Read this to the class in two sittings. Liked the color pictures. I think this must be a few chapters from one of the larger Nate the Great books. The story was familiar to me.
the case is that Fang was lost. Fang was at the park. Sludge helped him by licking because there were doggie poems and one of them was Bark Bark Bark go to the park.

This book is mentioned in my blog post from 3/18/11 entitled Easy Readers Old and New:
Other Nate the Great books have made us laugh out loud. This one not so much, but it has a code and a pancake recipe in the back...
