Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

About the Author

Born in Portland, Maine, in 1928, Marjorie Weinman Sharmat dreamed of becoming a writer. Little did she know that she would be the author of more than 70 books for children of all ages. Another of her childhood dreams, that of becoming a detective, has also been realized in her most popular Nate the Great series, begun in 1972.

Many of Sharmat's books have been Literary Guild selections and chosen as Books of the Year by the Library of Congress. Several have been made into films for television, including Nate the Great Goes Undercover, winner of the Los Angeles International Children's Film Festival Award. Nate the Great Saves the King of Sweden has been named one of the New York Public Library's 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing.
