Join the world's greatest detective, Nate the Great, as he solves the mystery of the missing tomatoes in this long-running chapter book series that makes problem-solving fun!


A friendly competition to grow the best organic garden is underway. The prize is tempting . . . a ribbon, a photo and article in the newspaper, AND some all-you-can-eat favorites from Ned’s diner!

Esmeralda, Annie, Oliver, and Rosamond are among the competitors. Just a few days before contest judging, some of Rosamond’s tomatoes go missing, and Nate and Sludge are called to investigate.

Who is eager for tomatoes, and why? Nate and Sludge are on the case, and what they find surprises all but makes perfect sense!
