    I enjoyed this book because I like baseball and I used to do it I did not like this book because I do not like slimy squids for the idea of a baseball base.

    A book my 6 yr old loved, a little old for my preschoolers A solid reading level 2 book, this reader has a good amount of advanced vocabulary words, but not so long that it discourages a new reader Used it for his read out loud book, which was perfect It took about 15 mins for him to read and had just enough new vocabulary words to make it challenging Also, it was a fun and interesting story he could get into He liked it so much, he asked for by this author Great reading book

    A straightforward story, we actually read in one sitting The writing doesn t require much inferring by the reader at all it s very explicit, which makes it definitely accessible to very young readers listeners However, this does make it boring for me to read.

    Another very good mystery in the Nate The Great mystery books These mysteries are simple but yet not so simple that they are boring Nate and his friends all want to play baseball and a few of them were chosen to bring items to be used as bases But the one with second base the item comes up missing So they can t play ball until the mystery is solved Nate uses his wits and all what he knows to try and solve this Even as a reader reading it out loud to my adult special needs son I didn t figure it [...]

    Nate the Great books aren t that great I hated them when I was a kid, yet I would always read them.The endings of the books were always the same, they figured out what or who did it And where are Nate s parents They just let their son walk around everywhere and question people That is very irresponsible of them Nate the Great books always made me fall asleep and always wasted my time I would not recommend this book to anyone, especially little kids If kids want real mystery, they should read She [...]

    This is a funny story about a missing base in this case, a rubbery, squishy octopus that gradually loses its legs Nate the great is on the case to find the base and once again he uses his powers of deduction and intuition to follow the case to its logical conclusion And as always, he fortifies himself with pancakes along the way He and his dog Sludge are always able to get to the bottom of any mystery, no matter how small We really enjoy this series and look forward to .

    The most interesting part of this case is the way Nate the Great found the clue that solved the mystery If not for Rosamond s baseball mitt that was stuck on the tree, Nate the Great would have never found the stolen base I expected the ending in this one but was not sure of how the writer will present it to the reader In this book, the writer was successful in showing the clues and breaking the mystery.

    Nate goes hunting for a missing octopus and finds gasp only a trail of legs.A clever tale not for the squeamish with a lot of really interesting baseball facts thrown in this got bumped up a star just for the baseball jokes alone


    Lisa(Bookworm Lisa)

    Nate the Great is a great book for children who in out of picture books, but not yet ready for big chapter book.Nate the Great is a detective who solves cases for the kids in his neighborhood He uses his mind to figure out the clues.

    Nate the great is an excellent sleuth as he searches for second base that has gone missing It has humor and I like the voice of the author in the Nate the Great series.


    Taylor Troncin

    Nate the Great is a unique character series I like them but sometimes think there s going on than what I notice If that makes sense

    My first grader loves NTG.

    One of the bases was an octopus which was the missing base They found it behind the bookcase.
