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 .

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.
