I love Nate the Great because of its dead-pan humor. Kids love Nate the Great because they enjoy following the clues and guessing about what happened. With two mysteries this time, kids will like to figure out how the mysteries intertwine. It's a great series for end of first grade or beginning second grade readers.

Nate is a likable narrator. His humor is very dry, and his dog is very funny. Some of the illustrations are also quite humorous. Patrick was interested in it partly because of the way it depicts how boys and girls relate to each other. For better or worse, the gendered preferences are fairly stereotypical, but it can still serve as a springboard for talking about why Patrick might not mind Valentines as much as Nate does. ( )
