"Nate makes a great narrator, his clipped prose mimicking that of the hard-boiled detective genre, providingshort, simple sentences for beginning readers, and setting up the deadpan humor. Simont's expressive drawings, tinted with watercolor washes, illustrate the characters and the action with finesse and restraint. A most appealing choice."--Booklist, Boxed Review
