Bedtime Story: Nate the Great Talks Turkey by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat, Mitchell Sharmatm and Marc Simont & Illustrated by Jody Wheeler


Read for: Borrowed Books & Read with Munchkin

Synopsis: "A giant turkey is on the loose! And everyone is on the case—Nate, his cousin Olivia, his dog, Sludge, and even his friend Claude. But from talking turkey to stalking turkey, will every detective come out a winner?"

My Review: Munchkin loves the Nate the Great books so we thought this would be a fun book to read for Thanksgiving. Turns out it isn't set during the fall, but it is about turkeys. This was a bit of a different book because Nate the Great is not on the case. We also get a bit of a peek into another series about a young girl detective Olivia Sharp which might interest other readers. I like how the clues are dropped in this book, you have to pay attention to not only the words but the illustrations as well to figure it out. There are also some great extras included in the end of the book, some turkey facts, turkey jokes and an article on turkey calling. While it wasn't about Thanksgiving, this still turned out to be a great book to read over the holiday break!

My Rating: We have read many of the Nate the Great books (not really in order) and they never seem to be quite the same, they always seem to have something new going on so they don't get to repetitive. We give this one a rating of Four Paws!

Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
