Nate the Great & the Tardy Tortoise

by Marjorie Sharmat


Quick Overview

Nate the Great discovers a tortoise eating the flowers in his garden and vows to help him find his way home. When his client proves uncommunicative, the determined sleuth ("I, Nate the Great, will never give up" ) follows the tortoise's trail of nibbled plants back to his grateful owner. As with other books in the series, this beginning reader has a sure sense of style in both writing and illustration. Simont's expressive drawings, touched with watercolors, ensure that even the simplest picture is worth a second look.


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. Size 0.23" H x 7.74" L x 5.22" W, 41 pages
