Nate the Great and Sludge woke up and saw a tortoise eating his flowers. Nate was looking for the tortoiseís owner. He went to his friendís house. It wasnít their tortoise. If you want to know who the owner is, read the book to find out.
I liked this book because itís a mystery and you have to solve it. I read a lot of Nate the Great books and thatís why I love this book. I like to solve mysteries at home and in school.
I recommend this to kids who like mystery books.
