Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
Ten-year-old Leroy Brown, aka Encyclopedia, is a key figure in helping his father, Police Chief Brown, keep Idaville's enviable year-long record of "no crime going unsolved." Encyclopedia Brown is a master of detail. His sharp eye and gift for remembering everything he has read or seen are formidable tools in his crime solving career. He solves ten mysteries, sometimes accompanied by his friend Sally, through careful observation and listening. A full-page black-and-white line drawing appears in each chapter. There is a welcome emphasis on intellectual power over muscle power and the solution, once the clues are revealed, is straightforward and satisfying. It should be noted that the language and culture of the mysteries are dated, as are the illustrations. For example, a character would probably not be named "Abner" in a children's book written today, and the fee for a day's work would not be 25 cents, even if charged for work by a ten-year-old. But the stories are well plotted and the characters are believable, if old-fashioned by today's standards. This book would be a good addition to a middle school library or English classroom.
