After a hearty breakfast of pancakes, Nate the Great gets an urgent call from Annie.

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

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

And so Nate, with the cool detachment of a Sam Spade, plunges into his new and baffling case.

Getting all the facts, asking the right questions, narrowing the list of 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!

Nate is called to duty when a friend loses her painting. Being a detective, Nate finds it quickly, thanks to his knowledge of color. I like the Nate the Great series because they aren’t scary but they are fun to read and have well-done illustrations.

I put three stars because I liked it a little. But it is fun to read at least I like to read. I thought it was funny.
