Children's Literature
Leroy Brown (a.k.a. Encyclopedia Brown) lives on Rover Avenue in the town of Idaville. He received his nickname because he constantly reads and is a wealth of information. Although he may seem like any other kid, Encyclopedia has his own successful gumshoe business; the junior detective has solved a number of mysteries. Bugs Meany, who constantly stirs up trouble with the neighborhood kids, helps to keep Encyclopedia’s business open. Victims of Bugs’ trickery need Encyclopedia’s Sherlock Holmes-like skills in order to solve their problems. Occasionally, Encyclopedia assists his father, Idaville’s police chief, by solving crimes and mysteries. In one police case, Encyclopedia determines who kidnapped Bobby Tyler by considering the evidence. In this book of the “Encyclopedia Brown” series, the junior detective even finds himself solving a few mysteries while on a family vacation in Texas. Readers have the opportunity to join him in putting clues together to solve the cases. For the junior, armchair sleuth, the solution to each case is located at the back of the book. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
