Finding a tortoise in his yard one day, Nate the Great embarks on a new case to return the reptile to hos own home. With his trusted dog companion he sleuths out the truth in this cuddly caper.

I thought Nate the Great was... well, great. The illustrations where excellent and very colorful. The story was simple to follow and had a nice progression. It wasn't really a true who-done-it kind of story though I certainly appreciated the nod to detective fiction. I thought the clues and ideas Nate used to solve the case were logical and that kids would have a fun time following along. ( )

Great early reader series.
Mystery genre.
Nate and Sludge find a tortoise and must figure out who it belongs to.

Nate is great fun. I like the fact that the kids he interacts with are not always entirely likable. ( )

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and someone is eating the flowers in Nate the Great's garden. A green tortoise is slowly, slowly stepping across the lawn, and Nate is slowly, slowly following him. Where does Nate's green guest truly belong? It may take all of Nate the Great's patience and sharp eyesight to find out slowly.
