    MARJORIE WEINMAN SHARMAT has written more than 130 books for children and young adults, as well as movie and TV novelizations. Her books have been translated into twenty-four languages. The award-winning Nate the Great series, hailed in Booklist as “groundbreaking,” has resulted in Nate’s real-world appearances in many New York Times crossword puzzles, sporting a milk mustache in magazines and posters, residing on more than 28 million boxes of Cheerios, and touring the country in musical theater. Marjorie Weinman Sharmat and her husband, Mitchell Sharmat, have also coauthored many books, including titles in both the Nate the Great and the Olivia Sharp series.

    MARC SIMONT won the Caldecott Medal for his artwork in A Tree Is Nice by Janice May Udry, as well as a Caldecott Honor for his own book,The Stray Dog. He illustrated the first twenty books in the Nate the Great series.

    Beginning readers are introduced to the detective mystery genre in these chapter books. Perfect for the Common Core, kids can problem-solve with Nate, using logical thinking to solve mysteries!

    Annie has lost her house key. Now she can’t set up for Fang’s birthday party. Nate doesn't want to go to a party for Annie's ferocious dog. But he can't resist a mystery. Nate the Great and his trusty dog, Sludge, are hot on the trail!

    Check out the Fun Activities section in the back of the book!

    “Casual and comic, Simont’s drawings are . . . lively, adding vitality to the brisk first-person account of yet another deductive triumph. . . . Satisfying, nicely structured and written, this can also be used for reading aloud to younger children.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

      We love the Nate the Great series. I read them to my two boys every night. My boys are 5 and 2 and they both like the capers.
