Overview

Can the secret weapon in Idaville’s war on crime really be a ten-year-old boy in sneakers? It can if it’s Encyclopedia Brown!

Encyclopedia is back with ten all-new mysteries to solve, along with the help of his partner, Sally Kimball, the prettiest and toughest girl in the fifth grade. They’ll have to face Bugs Meany, who’s up to his old tricks, and Wilford Wiggins, who’s still dreaming up new schemes to trick the kids of Idaville out of their money. Plus there’s lots of new characters too!

The solutions to all the mysteries are in the back—but can you solve them first?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Leroy Brown is the son to the police chief in Idaville. He knows so many things that everyone (but his parents and his teachers) call him Encyclopedia. He, beyond anything else his father and the other members of the police force do, is the direct reason there are no crimes that go unpunished in town. He can solve any crime and therefore, catch any felon. His good friend, Sally, is his sidekick and helps solve those mysteries presented to him by friends or family. Encyclopedia charges a quarter for this service and never leaves a customer unhappy; he can solve anything! Readers will enjoy the ten cases presented to Encyclopedia in this book. As he begins to unravel the mystery, so will the reader. The solutions are never disclosed at the end of the story so that the reader can solve it independently, without Encyclopedia's help. Should some help be needed, all cases are solved in a special section at the end of the book. The cases are not easy to crack and may frustrate some. However, as the reader progresses through the book and becomes more sensitive to subtle clues given, success at solving the mystery without peaking will increase. This is a great book for comprehension practice and appreciation of detail. There are pencil sketches throughout the book, but do not count on any clues from them. 2003, Delacorte Press, Ages 8 to 13.
