Nate the Great is the young reader's version of the hard boiled detective in Raymond Chandler's novels for adults. Written in a tongue-in-cheek style by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat and charmingly illustrated by Marc Simont, Nate the Great mysteries offer a cast of, well . . strange children led by a pancake loving detective and his dog, Sludge. In this story, Nate's friend Rosamund asks him to help her find her missing cat on a spooky Halloween night. Never fear! Nate always solves his cases!
