Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shortly after a breakfast generously supplied with pancakes, Natethe Great got an urgent call from Annie.

"I lost a picture," said Annie. "Can you help me find it?"

"Of course," said Nate. "I have found lost balloons, books, slippers, chickens. Even a lost goldfish. Now I, Nate the Great, will find a lost picture."

"Oh, good," Annie said.

Nate, with the cool detachment of a Sam Spade, immediately plunges into his new and baffling case. Getting all the facts, asking the right questions, narrowing down the suspects. Nate, the boy detective who "likes to work alone," solves the mystery and tracks down the culprit. In the process he also discovers the whereabouts of Super Hex, the missing cat.

Synopsis:

With three-color illustrations, neighborhood detective Nate investigates the disappearance of his friend Annie's favorite painting. "Sharmat has perfectly reduced Sam Spade sentences and attitudes to fit primary grade sleuths and the easy-to-read format. Kids will like Nate the Great."--"School Library Journal."

Synopsis:

Neighborhood detective Nate investigates the disappearance of his friend Annie's favorite painting. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

From The Case of the Stolen Diamonds to The Case of the Stolen Money, here are fifteen of Encyclopedia Brown's best mysteries, carefully selected from the entire series. Included is a never-before-published article written by Don Sobol about his reasons behind writing the Encyclopedia Brown series.

Synopsis:

Can Cam catch a jewel thief?

Mysteries follow super-sleuth Cam Jansen everywhere she goes… even to a charity event. Cam and Eric are at a benefit with their mothers to raise money for local firefighters. When the host's pearl necklace goes missing, the luncheon turns into a whodunit, and all the guests are suspects. Can Cam use her photographic memory to identify the culprit before the thief gets away?

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.
