A giant turkey is on the loose! Nate, the great detective, and his dog, Sludge, hear the news on the radio. But Nate doesn't want to take a case that everyone in town is on. Not even when Claude claims that he saw the turkey, then lost him in the woods. He holds up a turkey feather to prove it. Now Sludge wants the case. Claude wants Sludge, and off they go.
Miles away . . . Nate's cousin Olivia Sharp--herself a detective--hears about the missing turkey on TV. Before he can say gobble, gobble, Olivia appears on Nate's doorstep; and just as quickly, she's off hunting for the feathered creature.
It looks as if Nate can sit this case out . . . until he turns on his TV and a picture of the turkey flashes on. Suddenly Nate is moving just as fast! Now Nate, Olivia, Sludge, and Claude are all in pursuit of the turkey. Are two (or more) detectives better than one? From talking turkey to stalking turkey--will every detective come out a winner?

Marjorie Weinman Sharmat has written every Nate the Great book. Here she collaborates with her husband, Mitchell Sharmat. The author lives in Tuscon, AZ.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4–An engaging and funny addition to the series. As Nate hears a radio report about a giant turkey that wreaks havoc in a supermarket parking lot and then disappears, his friend Claude comes in to tell him that he has just seen the large bird. A mystery is afoot, and Nate's dog, Sludge, is the first to take on the case. Cousin Olivia Sharp flies in from San Francisco wearing her boa and tries to drum up some enthusiasm for a turkey search team. The wealthy girl uses her great knowledge of birds to solve the mystery. Large print, plenty of white space, good use of repetition, and frequent drawings allow early readers to enjoy the story.–Rebecca Sheridan, Easttown Library & Information Center, Berwyn, PA
