James Patterson's best children’s books

Bestselling novelist James Patterson named a best children's books list for The Week magazine.

One title on his list:
Nate the Great by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat (Delacorte, $14).

Nate understands that you have to solve a few minor-league cases before you can move on to Sam Spade–style crime-stopping. Great stories and snappy, clear writing. Attentive readers can help Nate pick up clues along the way.
Read about all six books on Patterson's list.
