Shortly after a breakfast generously supplied with
pancakes, Natethe Great got an urgent call from Annie.
"I lost a picture," said Annie. "Can you help me find it?"
"Of course," said Nate. "I have found lost balloons, books,
slippers, chickens. Even a lost goldfish. Now I, Nate the
Great, will find a lost picture."
"Oh, good," Annie said.
Nate, with the cool detachment of a Sam Spade, immediately
plunges into his new and baffling case. Getting all the
facts, asking the right questions, narrowing down the
suspects. Nate, the boy detective who "likes to work
alone," solves the mystery and tracks down the culprit. In
the process he also discovers the whereabouts of Super Hex,
the missing cat.
