Editorial Reviews

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
