    Very engaging.

    My son loves this series, and was extremely excited to get books for his collection. He was never one to read before, but since starting this series, he looks forward to reading. The books are easy reads, but makes you think. My son challenges himself to see if he can figure out how Encyclopedia Brown solves the case at the end of each chapter. He read this book in one afternnon, he was so enthrawlled with it!

    good for helping to develop critical thinking

    When our older son Mark was younger, we checked many of these books out of the library for him. A child can read each case, try to figure out what conclusion Encyclopedia Brown reached and why, and then turn to the back of the book to find the solution. This can help with developing critical thinking skills. Since then, we have obtained a few of them (such as this one, and Encyclopedia Brown Lends a Hand, #11), mostly older editions at used curriculum sales. Our experience has been that the newer ones do not seem to have the same quaintness and charm as the earlier ones. I suppose that when an author has published 21 or more books of the same nature, he may begin to run a little out of steam.
    The newer ones seem to me to be more "modern" or "hip," perhaps to make them more appealing to today's youngsters today and to compete with television, cable, video games, and computers. At the same time, we have found nothing objectionable in them, and they are very interesting and enjoyable reading. Other titles in the series include Boy Detective (#1), The Case of the Secret Pitch (#2, which we have in paperback), Finds the Clues (#3), Gets His Man (#4), Solves them All (#5), Keeps the Peace (#6), Saves the Day (#7), Tracks Them Down (#8), Shows the Way (#9), The Case of the Dead Eagles (#12), The Case of the Midnight Visitor (#13), The Case of the Mysterious Handprints (#16), The Case of the Treasure Hunt (#17), The Case of the Disgusting Sneaker (#18), The Case of the Two Spies (#19), The Case of the Jumping Frogs, Carries On, Sets the Pace, and Takes the Cake, and perhaps others.
