Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3-- Nate the Great and his faithful dog Sludge solve yet another mystery. This time the wily detectives accept the case of a missing cat on Halloween eve. It seems that Rosamond's cat, Little Hex, has disappeared. Little Hex hates Halloween and likes to hide until all the tricking and treating are over, but this time Rosamond fears that Little Hex may really be lost. Nate investigates, making his usual pithy observations along the way. His inquiry even takes him to a ramshackle old house that may be haunted. But the obvious clues lead nowhere. The detectives are stumped until they brainstorm over their favorite snacks: pancakes for Nate and a bone for Sludge. Once again Nate's keen powers of observation and deductive reasoning save the day. Simont's familiar illustrations are appropriately dark for this All Hallows mystery. All the regulars are back in Nate's latest mystery, and as fresh as ever. Readers will still marvel at Nate's brains, ingenuity, and his undying devotion to pancakes. Sharmat makes beginning to read a pleasure. --Denia Lewis Hester, Chicago Pub . Lib .

From the Publisher

It is Halloween night and all the kids are dressed in scary and funny costumes. Their Trick or Treat bags are getting heavier.

Nate's good friend Rosamond needs his help. Her cat, Little Hex, is missing. Little Hex hates Halloween, so maybe he's hiding. Or is he lost? Nate and his trusty dog Sludge take the case and hunt in the night for Little Hex. They pass robots, pirates, and witches. But where will they find Little Hex?

My grandson loved this book. He is 8 and can read it himself. He also liked the recipes and jokes at the back.

HASH(0xa508ee64) out of 5 stars Nate The Great And The Halloween Hunt July 27 2010
By Anna M. Ligtenberg - Published on
Format: Paperback
ISBN 0440403413 - Printed in the United States of America (a plus, for me!). Nate the Great and Halloween seem to have been made for each other. The Halloween Hunt is bound to appeal to the target audience of 6 to 9 year olds, as well as regular fans of the innocently egotistical Nate.

Nate is at home on Halloween with his dog, Sludge, answering the door for trick-or-treaters, when a mystery knocks. Rosamond's cat, Little Hex, has gone missing! Nate has Rosamond go over her actions since she lost saw the cat and, after a false start or two, finds the lost feline with simple deductive reasoning. And the help of Sludge, of course.

Author Marjorie Weinman Sharmat's Nate is an awesome character, as smart as any adult and as randomly hilarious as only kids can be. I dislike the way the text is laid out in the book, with really short lines in a really large font and line-breaks without any reason, but beyond that, there's not a thing I'd complain about. The illustrations by Marc Simont are appropriately dark and spooky when they should be and funny at just the right times. Nate the Great is a series that boys, in particular, will enjoy.

HASH(0xa508eeb8) out of 5 stars The Best Book in the World Nov. 6 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a good book for Halloween because it takes place on Halloween. It is really, really, really funny. Nate thought his dog was a ghost and that made me laugh. It was my favorite Nate the Great book. It was the funniest book I ever read.

HASH(0xa7deff74) out of 5 stars Cute Story May 15 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really love all of the Nate the Great stories, and this one was just as cute as the other ones I have read. I teach first grade, so it is sometimes hard to find books that are more challenging (chapter books for my higher readers) that are also age-level appropriate. This series is perfect!
HASH(0xa508ee34) out of 5 stars Nate the Great is a young boy who loves to solve mysteries Feb. 8 2015
By Rosa Cline - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Nate the Great is a young boy who loves to solve mysteries. When something is amuse in the neighborhood he's on the case. In this one his friends are going trick or treating but one of his friends basket is already to heavy and she can't get any more treats AND her cat is missing! So he goes on the case to solve the missing cat. I enjoyed reading this to my special needs teenage sons they both enjoyed listening to it(even the one that normally won't sit still to be read to) at times I felt like one of them were kind of getting scared because it does talk about a haunted house and Nate has to go investigate then gets 'locked' in and finds another way out. So be cautious if you have a young child listening to this book or a 'sensitive' child as they may become a little scared at places but if you stay with the story they soon get over being scared. And as far as figuring out where the cat went as a reader you find out at the end and if you pay attention to the 'clues' along the way you can figure it out if you can't and find out when you read the end. Nate explains all the clues he picked up along the way. Perfect to help a young mystery solver figure things out
