Nate the Great is on the case again, tracking down a dog's missing Christmas card -- Fang's mother sends him one every year. When Nate discovers that Fang's owner is a catalog aficionado, the detective senses a clue. Amusing illustrations and quirky characters such as Nate's neighbor Rosamund, who decorates her tree with her cats and some tuna fish cans, make for a droll mystery story.
