"In 'Nate the Great and the Stolen Base' by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat, Nate and his friends lost the thing they used for second base. It was a plastic octopus. Nate the Great found some legs from the octopus, then found the rest of it behind the shelf. I love all the 'Nate the Great' books because they are mysteries. Nate the Great always solves the problems. Sludge is his dog and he helps Nate find clues."
