From the Publisher
Shortly after a breakfast generously supplied with pancakes, Natethe Great got an urgent call from Annie.
"I lost a picture," said Annie. "Can you help me find it?"
"Of course," said Nate. "I have found lost balloons, books, slippers, chickens. Even a lost goldfish. Now I, Nate the Great, will find a lost picture."
"Oh, good," Annie said.
Nate, with the cool detachment of a Sam Spade, immediately plunges into his new and baffling case. Gatting all the facts, asking the right questions, narrowing down the suspects. Nate, the boy detective who "likes to work alone," solves the mystery and tracks down the culprit. In the process he also discovers the whereabouts of Super Hex, the missing cat.

I am now volunteering with 2nd graders who have reading problems (many whose parents are not literate or don't speak English) and I read with a 2nd grader once a week. He loved this book and loved the treasure hunt activity we did with it. I gave it to another volunteer and she said it was the first book that the 2nd grade boy that she reads with would read out loud-for the previous few months, she read aloud to him. Before we read the book, we previewed vocabulary (made some cards) for the "detective words" (in the back of the book in new editions) and words that might be challenging.
attentive and answered all her questions perfectly. I would recommend it as a great book that's not based on the usual
animals, but a step up into a different aspect of life.
