NATE THE GREAT AND THE OWL EXPRESS
All aboard the Owl Express! Nate, the great detective, and his dog Sludge, hit the rails on their latest case. Their mission: To guard an owl named Hoot. Hoot belongs to Nate’s cousin, Olivia Sharp, and she thinks someone on the train might be out to get her feathered friend. But whooo? Sludge keeps an eye on the owl’s cage while Nate snoops for clues. Then Hoot disappears! With many suspects to question, and many places to look, Nate knows one thing for sure—being the bodyguard to a little bird is a lot more work than he ever imagined! As the train races toward its final stop, can Nate sort out the mystery of the vanishing owl?
NATE THE GREAT AND THE TARDY TORTOISE
The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and someone is eating the flowers in Nate the Great's garden. A green tortoise is slowly, slowly stepping across the lawn, and Nate is slowly, slowly following him. Where does Nate's green guest truly belong? It may take all of Nate the Great's patience and sharp eyesight to find out slowly.
NATE THE GREAT AND THE KING OF SWEDEN
Rosamond is visiting Scandinavia when she loses something. She wants Nate the Great to find it, even though he doesn’t know what she lost, what country she lost it in, or when she lost it. And he’s thousands of miles away. But if Nate doesn’t take the case, Rosamond plans to hire the King of Sweden. Nate doesn’t want Rosamond to bother the poor king. And he does want the chance to solve his first-ever international case. Can Nate find whatever Rosamond lost without leaving his neighborhood?
NATE THE GREAT, SAN FRANCISCO DETECTIVE
Olivia isn't around to solve her case number 22. Her client, Duncan, has lost his joke book. He tells Nate that if the book isn't found--and soon--the world will come to an end. Nate takes the case. He and Sludge cruise up and down and around San Francisco in the limo, tracking down clues. Sticky, icky clues, big and small clues, all-around-the-town clues that take them to a pancake house, over the Golden Gate Bridge, and finally to a place that seems wrong but could be right. Can Nate the Great keep the world from coming to an end? Can he solve his first out-of-town case?
NATE THE GREAT AND THE PILLOWCASE
It's two o'clock in the morning when the telephone rings and Nate the Great learns that Rosamond's pillowcase is missing. She needs it now because her cat, Big Hex, likes to sleep on it. Outside it is damp, dark, and dreary, but a good (yawning) sleuth knows that the hunt must go on. Can Nate the Great find the missing piece of laundry before the sun comes up, and before his bedroom slippers wear out?
NATE THE GREAT AND THE MUSICAL NOTE

Will Nate the Great stay stuck in the middle of this musical riddle?

Nate frantically searches for his best friend and trusted helper. Salespeople have spotted a wet, slippery, sloppy dog running about. Is Sludge hiding from them? Nate looks high and low, and in places he’d rather not look at all. But every clue leads to a dead end . . . until Nate realizes that Sludge can help him with this case!
