NATE THE GREAT AND THE OWL EXPRESS

All aboard the Owl Express! Nate, the great detective, and his dog Sludge, hit the rails on their latest case. Their mission: To guard an owl named Hoot. Hoot belongs to Nate’s cousin, Olivia Sharp, and she thinks someone on the train might be out to get her feathered friend. But whooo? Sludge keeps an eye on the owl’s cage while Nate snoops for clues. Then Hoot disappears! With many suspects to question, and many places to look, Nate knows one thing for sure—being the bodyguard to a little bird is a lot more work than he ever imagined! As the train races toward its final stop, can Nate sort out the mystery of the vanishing owl?

NATE THE GREAT AND THE TARDY TORTOISE

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.

NATE THE GREAT AND THE KING OF SWEDEN

Rosamond is visiting Scandinavia when she loses something. She wants Nate the Great to find it, even though he doesn’t know what she lost, what country she lost it in, or when she lost it. And he’s thousands of miles away. But if Nate doesn’t take the case, Rosamond plans to hire the King of Sweden. Nate doesn’t want Rosamond to bother the poor king. And he does want the chance to solve his first-ever international case. Can Nate find whatever Rosamond lost without leaving his neighborhood?

NATE THE GREAT, SAN FRANCISCO DETECTIVE

Olivia isn't around to solve her case number 22. Her client, Duncan, has lost his joke book. He tells Nate that if the book isn't found--and soon--the world will come to an end. Nate takes the case. He and Sludge cruise up and down and around San Francisco in the limo, tracking down clues. Sticky, icky clues, big and small clues, all-around-the-town clues that take them to a pancake house, over the Golden Gate Bridge, and finally to a place that seems wrong but could be right. Can Nate the Great keep the world from coming to an end? Can he solve his first out-of-town case?

NATE THE GREAT AND THE PILLOWCASE

It's two o'clock in the morning when the telephone rings and Nate the Great learns that Rosamond's pillowcase is missing. She needs it now because her cat, Big Hex, likes to sleep on it. Outside it is damp, dark, and dreary, but a good (yawning) sleuth knows that the hunt must go on. Can Nate the Great find the missing piece of laundry before the sun comes up, and before his bedroom slippers wear out?

NATE THE GREAT AND THE MUSICAL NOTE

Nate the Great has just received a strange musical note. The note tells Nate's friend Pip what his mother wants him to do at four o'clock. Their friend Rosamond has turned the note into a riddle. Nate checks Rosamond's garage, but doesn't find any clues. Time is running out for Nate and his dog, Sludge. It's almost four o'clock. Will Nate the Great stay stuck in the middle of this musical riddle?

NATE THE GREAT AND THE BIG SNIFF

Nate, the great detective, depends on his dog, Sludge, to help him solve all of his cases. But Sludge can’t help him this time — Sludge is lost! Lost inside a big department store on a rainy day. Nate frantically searches for his best friend and trusted helper. Salespeople have spotted a wet, slippery, sloppy dog running about. Is Sludge hiding from them? Nate looks high and low, and in places he’d rather not look at all. But every clue leads to a dead end . . . until Nate realizes that Sludge can help him with this case! 

NATE THE GREAT AND ME

Nate the Great needs your help. Annie's dog, Fang, is missing! That's what Nate discovers when his friends throw him a surprise Happy Detective Day party. Where is Fang? As you and Nate track down clues--Fang was learning tricks for the party; he was seen running away from two tiny poodles and following a lady wearing fluffy-bunny shoes--Nate will share his expert detective skills with you so you can sharpen your sleuthing talents.

  

NATE THE GREAT GOES DOWN IN THE DUMPS

Nate the Great and his trusty dog, Sludge, have a tricky case to solve. Nate’s friend Rosamond has started a fortune-telling business, but her money box is missing. Sludge and Nate visit Claude, who helped Rosamond set up her business, and Finley, who collects boxes for his rat. They can’t seem to help! It looks like the only way to clean up this case is to get down and dirty in the dumps!

NATE THE GREAT STALKS STUPIDWEED

When Oliver asks his friend Nate the Great to  find his lost weed, Nate can't say no. This isn't  just any weed. It's a Superweed that Oliver bought  from Rosamond's Adopt-A-Weed  sale. First Nate must figure out where to look for the  weed. Together with his trusty dog Sludge, they  search for clues in the woods, the park and even the  library! But is the biggest clue right under  Nate's nose?
