Just as much fun as the first one, we're really loving Nate the Great!! In this volume, we join Nate on his first "night case." What is this case? Well, Nate has been hired by his annoying neighbor Oliver whose garbage keeps getting dumped over in the middle of the night...WHO would want to steal

GARBAGE?! Nate the Great is on the case in no time flat with a LONG, LONG list of suspects....including just about every neighborhood animal you can think of.

Delivered in the same P.I. voiceover as the first book, Nate the Great continues the great tradition of tough guy private detectives...well, as tough as a kid can get at any rate...I can almost imagine it being read by Leslie Neilson (of spoof flick fame), because there is such an edge of hilarity in each book, that you can't resist getting a total kick out of reading how Nate narrows down the suspects and solves the mystery! Another hit for Sharmat! We're still loving the Nate the Great series and plan to read many more!!

It was good but I didn't like the part of the bathtub. He was naked so my mom drew bubbles over him to. Also the case was too easy to figure out. - Josiah Lindsey 11
