This story was a great read because it encouraged the reader to use their imagination and predict what will happen next. Nate and his dog, Sludge are detectives working the case of the missing joke book. They use clues and work together to the missing book before the world comes to an end. The story promotes friendship and teamwork. The text is large to make the reader feel less intimidated when first looking at it. There are illustrations throughout chapters to help the reader visualize the characters and setting. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440418216, Paperback)

Nate, the great detective, and his dog, Sludge, are off to San Francisco! They're going to visit Nate's cousin Olivia Sharp. She's a detective, too, and a very busy one.

Olivia isn't around to solve her case number 22. Her client, Duncan, has lost his joke book. He tells Nate that if the book isn't found--and soon--the world will come to an end. Nate takes the case. He and Sludge cruise up and down and around San Francisco in the limo, tracking down clues. Sticky, icky clues, big and small clues, all-around-the-town clues that take them to a pancake house, over the Golden Gate Bridge, and finally to a place that seems wrong but could be right. Can Nate the Great keep the world from coming to an end? Can he solve his first out-of-town case?

From the Hardcover Library Binding edition.
