Ready to go to the town dump? Rosamond lost her money box. She asked Nate the Great to help her find it. He searched many places for the box like at their friends house, in their pet's mouth, and at the town dump. When Nate the Great was at the dump he realized where the box was. If you want to know the rest, you have to read this book.

The reason I liked this book is because it was really adventurous and juicy. Another reason is because it made me feel like I was on a mission. I wanted to figure out where the money box was, but it wasn't that easy. This story reminds me of when I lost my PSP. In the story, Nate the Great searched many places to find the money box just like I looked everywhere to find my PSP. I felt excited when I found my PSP in my karate bag. I bet Rosamond felt like I did because all of her money was inside the box.

If you like boring books, this book is not the book for you. If you like adventurous books, than this book is for you! If you do not read this book, you are insane. You would have fun reading this book because it is funny and you will probably laugh a lot. It will knock your socks off.
