Nate the Great by Marjorie Sharmat
I know I could sound completely self-absorbed by admitting that this book is my favorite, but in my defense I was one of four Nates in my class and it was all of our favorite. Here’s why it’s mine from my Goodreads review:
I am serious when I tell you that Marjorie Sharmat predicted my life:
I had a Big Hex-ish cat. I don’t like girls (in that way). And I am very good at figuring out household discrepancies using my basic logic skills. I even looked A LOT like Nate the Great when I was 7 or 8.
The only thing that didn’t stick was the hat.
