Overview

Leroy Brown, aka Encyclopedia Brown, is Idaville neighborhood’s ten-year-old star detective. With an uncanny knack for trivia, he solves mysteries for the neighborhood kids through his own detective agency. But his dad also happens to be the chief of the Idaville police department, and every night around the dinner table, Encyclopedia helps him solve his most baffling crimes. And with ten confounding mysteries in each book, not only does Encyclopedia have a chance to solve them, but the reader is given all the clues as well. Interactive and chock full of interesting bits of information—it’s classic Encyclopedia Brown!

“I loved Encyclopedia Brown as a kid.”—Junot Diaz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 7 to 12.

This reprint of the third in the "Encyclopedia Brown" series still has its charm. Encyclopedia Brown works out of his parent's garage solving crimes (ten in this book), ranging from a stolen tooth collection to a movie star's lost lamb statue. Although the text may seem a bit dated for young readers (face it, "motor cars," "rubber pillows," "diving rods," and "25¢ fees per day" for Encyclopedia's crime solving may seem a little unrealistic), readers will love thinking through each and every crime--and reading the solutions in the back of the book. The updated cover shows a generic Encyclopedia who could almost be any number of kids in school today--only the Jug Head-type crown on the "bully" would give away that the story was originally written in 1966. All in all, this hip new cover will pull readers once again into a classic crime solver that they will not want to put down. Reviewer: Joella Peterson

Our son enjoyed these series when he was young - he will be 39 this year. Now I'm purchasing them for other young boys in our family & will purchase for our grandsons when they get of age to read. It seems all young boys enjoy these books a whole lot. I'm hoping when I buy them for our grandsons it will bring back good memories for our son as well.

These books are a great introduction to the whole detective/mystery genre. While my 8 year old son usually can't figure out the cases on the 1st time through, he often finds success and is fired up in solving the mysteries after going through a 2nd time.
