This book is about a detective named Nate the Great that solves a lot of different cases. One day he went to the supermarket and got some dog shampoo because that day there was going to be a smartest pet contest in the park. He also got stuff to make pancakes. Then Nate the Great went home when he got home the phone rang. It was Rosamond. She was in charge of the smartest pet contest. "I lost the prize," Rosamond said. Nate the Great took the case. Nate the Great went over to her house. Nate the Great asked where Rosamond last saw the prize. Rosamond said, "On my window sill." They looked inside and outside but Nate the Great didn't see it. So they went to other people's houses that had been at Rosamond's house. Nate the Great went to Claude's house but he didn't find any clues . Then they went to Esmeralda's house. They got a clue there. It was that Fang was standing next to the window. His tail was going back and forth. Can you guess what happened next?

We recommend this book because they have to look inside and outside and they don't see it. And we think that's weird. We recommend this book because if you like detectives you'll like this story.
