ISBN 0440403413 - Printed in the United States of America (a plus, for me!). Nate the Great and Halloween seem to have been made for each other. The Halloween Hunt is bound to appeal to the target audience of 6 to 9 year olds, as well as regular fans of the innocently egotistical Nate.Nate is at home on Halloween with his dog, Sludge, answering the door for trick-or-treaters, when a mystery knocks. Rosamond's cat, Little Hex, has gone missing! Nate has Rosamond go over her actions since she lost saw the cat and, after a false start or two, finds the lost feline with simple deductive reasoning. And the help of Sludge, of course.Author Marjorie Weinman Sharmat's Nate is an awesome character, as smart as any adult and as randomly hilarious as only kids can be. I dislike the way the text is laid out in the book, with really short lines in a really large font and line-breaks without any reason, but beyond that, there's not a thing I'd complain about. The illustrations by Marc Simont are appropriately dark and spooky when they should be and funny at just the right times. Nate the Great is a series that boys, in particular, will enjoy.- AnnaLovesBooks

I really love all of the Nate the Great stories, and this one was just as cute as the other ones I have read. I teach first grade, so it is sometimes hard to find books that are more challenging (chapter books for my higher readers) that are also age-level appropriate. This series is perfect!

This is a good book for Halloween because it takes place on Halloween. It is really, really, really funny. Nate thought his dog was a ghost and that made me laugh. It was my favorite Nate the Great book. It was the funniest book I ever read.

My son and I really enjoyed this book. We read this for a book report he had to complete for school. We read it in one afternoon and my son was able to follow along easily. I would recommend this book.

Nate the Great is a young boy who loves to solve mysteries. When something is amuse in the neighborhood he's on the case. In this one his friends are going trick or treating but one of his friends basket is already to heavy and she can't get any more treats AND her cat is missing! So he goes on the case to solve the missing cat. I enjoyed reading this to my special needs teenage sons they both enjoyed listening to it(even the one that normally won't sit still to be read to) at times I felt like one of them were kind of getting scared because it does talk about a haunted house and Nate has to go investigate then gets 'locked' in and finds another way out. So be cautious if you have a young child listening to this book or a 'sensitive' child as they may become a little scared at places but if you stay with the story they soon get over being scared. And as far as figuring out where the cat went as a reader you find out at the end and if you pay attention to the 'clues' along the way you can figure it out if you can't and find out when you read the end. Nate explains all the clues he picked up along the way. Perfect to help a young mystery solver figure things out

my son's love the Nate the Great collection he is 6 years old. I was so happy to find such a wide variety. thank you!!

This was our first Nate the Great book, though I have already ordered more. I homeschool and my 9 year old son is dyslexic. This was the perfect introduction to chapter books for him. It had a few challenging words, but was not so hard that my son was discouraged. He read it over two days during reading class and loved it. Can't wait for our others to arrive. He is so excited that he read a bigger book.

My son is a beginning reader and this is a great introduction to chapter books for him. The fact that it's close to Halloween really helps, too. It's a fun book!
