Another intriguing episode in the Nate the Great series.  The young detective and his trusty dog, Sledge, are on the hunt for an “evil page monster,” who damages or tears pages from Rosamond’s books.  Could it be one of the members of her book club?  Nat is not convinced, after inspecting the evidence and sitting in on the club.  Through his observations, ability to put age appropriate clues together, and aid from his signature brain food, a stack of pancakes, he concludes another cozy mystery.  The illustrations provide good picture cues, as well as support the text and plot.  Like the other books in this series, each is a stand alone and not dependant on reading any of the earlier editions in order to be appreciated and understood.   For grades K-3r
