Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Janice DeLong
Leroy Brown, as the son of Police Chief Brown in Idaville, has grown to the ripe old age of ten hearing about crimes and shenanigans of the lawless his entire life. Consequently, Leroy, better known as "Encyclopedia" has also learned to look and listen for clues to any kind of shady deal that an adult or young person tries to pull on an unsuspecting victim. The Chief often discusses cases with Encyclopedia, and the young detective's reputation has spread throughout his elementary school. With his loyal assistant, Sally, Encyclopedia solves cases all year round, but in the summer, his office is in the family garage and the fee for his services is twenty-five cents. This bargain provides insight into just how far back the series runs. Not only is the boy detective alert and intelligent, he is also well-read and knows about history and geography, as well as outer space and the size of sharks' teeth. In this volume, the ten mysteries are solved with ease by Encyclopedia, and since solutions are housed in a special section at the back of the book, young readers can test their sleuthing skills as they read, or listen to, each chapter. This title is one of the "Encyclopedia Brown" series. Reviewer: Janice DeLong
Kirkus Reviews

Cranking out the cases for his brainy, perpetually ten-year-old sleuth since 1963, Sobol dishes up ten moreā€”from stolen cookies and rare stamps to faked photos (see title) and a bogus 18th-century diary. Though the plots are as formulaic as they come, that's partly the point, and the easy language and frequent pen-and-ink illustrations provide an enduring draw for fledgling readers; the entertainment value in winkling out the telling clue without having to turn to the solutions in the back is evergreen. There's usually an artful joke or two to catch, too ("This time it was Flash Borden who came running up. Flash was in fifth grade, like Encyclopedia. His real name was Gordon. He had left Gordon Borden behind in kindergarten. Flash, he had decided, suited him better"--ba-da-boom!), plus some clever wordplay. Interchangeable the volumes may be, but young Brown remains a model for budding detectives everywhere. How pleasing to have a new clutch of mysteries for the rising generation thereof. (Crime fiction. 8-10)
