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

    Good reading for a young boy - will read this type of book all the time

    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.

    Another great book in the series - my son can't put them down.

    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.
