Contributor Bio(s): Born in Portland, Maine, in 1928, Marjorie Weinman Sharmat dreamed of becoming a writer. Little did she know that she would be the author of more than 70 books for children of all ages. Another of her childhood dreams, that of becoming a detective, has also been realized in her most popular Nate the Great series, begun in 1972.

Many of Sharmat's books have been Literary Guild selections and chosen as Books of the Year by the Library of Congress. Several have been made into films for television, including Nate the Great Goes Undercover, winner of the Los Angeles International Children's Film Festival Award. Nate the Great Saves the King of Sweden has been named one of the New York Public Library's 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2003 Spring)
The thirtieth anniversary edition of the classic easy reader is unchanged from the original. Young detective Nate the Great finds his friend Annie's missing painting in this solid story. Nate's blocky, serious look in Simont's simple but expressive illustrations makes readers take him as seriously as he takes himself. Copyright 2003 Horn Book Guide Reviews
