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?
Contributor Bio(s): Marjorie Weinman Sharmat has written more than 130 books for children and young adults, as well as movie and TV novelizations. Her books have been translated into twenty-four languages. The award-winning Nate the Great series, haled in Booklist as “groundbreaking,” has resulted in Nate’s real-world appearances in many New York Times crossword puzzles, sporting a milk mustache in magazines and posters, residing on more than 28 million boxes of Cheerios, and touring the country in musical theater. Marjorie Weinman Sharmat and her husband, Mitchell Sharmat, have also coauthored many books, including titles in both the Nate the Great and the Olivia Sharp series.
Rosalind Weinman, a portrait artist, lives in Tucson, Arizona. Her recollection of a mysterious middle-of-the-night phone call that woke her father, Nathan (the original Nate the Great), and mother, Anna, inspired this book. Rosalind Weinman has shown exceptional bravery in allowing the character Rosamond to be named after her.
Marc Simont won the Caldecott Medal for his artwork in A Tree Is Nice by Janice May Udry, as well as a Caldecott Honor for his own book, The Stray Dog. He illustrated the first twenty books in the Nate the Great series.

Gr 1-3-This 15th addition to the series will not disappoint fans. Nate is awakened by a phone call in the middle of the night. His friend Rosamond needs his help-her cat's pillowcase has disappeared, and the feline, Big Hex, is pacing and keeping her awake. So that all concerned may get some sleep, the young detective sets out to solve the case. This is another well-told, humorous mystery that young readers will be able to solve if they zero in on Sharmat's clues. Simont's lively, realistic watercolors correlate with the action in the text. A satisfying, easy-reader mystery.-Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA Copyright 1994 Cahners Business Information.
