Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of Pablo's Nose:

"Encyclopedia Brown is still Idaville's number-one brain and crime stopper . . .
a good and fun workout for the brain."—Booklist

"A good choice for critical thinkers or for getting children to start problem-solving."—School Library Journal

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Mystery lovers generally gobble up books, and series usually satisfy them. Donald Sobel gives readers an early start with his "Encyclopedia Brown" mysteries. His latest mystery shows us how a ten-year-old with a brain jammed full of facts, takes on seven new cases, which center on everything from lizard thieves to banana burglars. Flummoxed readers can find solutions at the book's end.
Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Police Chief Brown's 10-year-old son Leroy, better known as Encyclopedia, is still busy keeping Idaville safe from criminals and mischief-makers. Some of the cases the supersleuth encounters involve a dead cockroach, a runaway judge, a peacock's egg, and a stolen surfboard. Of course, the young detective solves these mysteries with ease, which is more than will be said for his many readers. Encyclopedia got his name "because his brain was filled with more facts than a reference book." In order to solve the cases, children will need to know a vast amount of trivial information, something most youngsters do not have. However, fans of the sneaker-clad sleuth will still be happy to see volume 22 in the series sitting on their library shelves.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
