Rosamund's baseball team has a very unusual second base—Oliver’s gloopy purple plastic octopus. But one morning . . . it’s gone! “Somebody stole second base,” Rosamond tells teammate Nate the Great. With the help of his dog, Sludge, the young detective trails the missing octopus, picking up clues along the way. It’s not easy to track down a stolen base, and Nate’s hunt leads him to some strange places before he finds himself up at bat once more.

Great book (great series of books actually) for any adult who needs 30 minutes in the car with a quiet kid!
Clever story, easy to follow, clear narrator's voice
recommend this book to all parents. this whole series is great for car rides - especially if they have headphones!!! - and I feel like its a bit better than just flipping on a movie in the car.
