Personal Response:

I really didn't think this was that great of a story. I understand that it is geared towards younger readers, where the focus is more on learning how to read, however, this story just goes around in circles and is poorly written. I know a lot of kids like reading these books, so they are serving the purpose of getting kids reading, but the librarian in me would like to see them reading something better.

Classroom/Library Uses:

Nate the Great books are excellent for teachers to use when doing mystery units. At a public library, it would be fun to have a Nate the Great night where children dress like Nate the Great and eat pancakes! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440421268, Paperback)

A giant turkey is on the loose! Nate, the great detective, and his dog, Sludge, hear the news on the radio. But Nate doesn't want to take a case that everyone in town is on. Not even when Claude claims that he saw the turkey, then lost him in the woods. He holds up a turkey feather to prove it. Now Sludge wants the case. Claude wants Sludge, and off they go.

Miles away . . . Nate's cousin Olivia Sharp--herself a detective--hears about the missing turkey on TV. Before he can say gobble, gobble, Olivia appears on Nate's doorstep; and just as quickly, she's off hunting for the feathered creature.

It looks as if Nate can sit this case out . . . until he turns on his TV and a picture of the turkey flashes on. Suddenly Nate is moving just as fast! Now Nate, Olivia, Sludge, and Claude are all in pursuit of the turkey. Are two (or more) detectives better than one? From talking turkey to stalking turkey--will every detective come out a winner?
