Synopsis:

As more and more of his flowers display the bite marks of a wandering tortoise, Nate sets out to uncover the mystery of the reptile’s origins.

Comments:

It is difficult to find mysteries for children at an early reader level who either want a mystery or need to read one for school.  Nate the Great is an excellent choice for those children.  While Nate is solving actual mysteries, with the help of his dog Fang, his methods will make sense to kids reading the book.  He solves mysteries by looking around, making observations and thinking about what he has seen.

I appreciate that the book’s text and illustrations are timeless, so that kids can continue enjoying Nate the Great for years to come.
