*“Marc Simont has dressed Nate the Great in Sherlock Holmes garb, and Marjorie Weinman Sharmat has perfectly reduced Sam Spade sentences to fit primary grade sleuths. Adults won’t mind reading this aloud again and again. Kids will like Nate the Great. Kids will want to read more of his books.” —School Library Journal, Starred
“The illustrations capture the exaggerated, tongue-in-cheek humor of the story.” —Booklist
