Encyclopedia Brown's Book of Wacky Crimes by Donald J. Sobol, Ted Enik
Fasten your seat belts�Encyclopedia Brown is back! The boy sleuth has returned with a lively collection of over 100 strange-but-true tales and trivia from the world of cars--plus a brand-new, solve-it-yourself mystery that will challenge and amaze his fans.
They don't come any wackier than this--chameleon cars that change colors; a car that was bought for 999 bananas; and the 1913 Duck, a sporty model in which the driver steered from the rear of the car. Fans of the 10-year-old Idaville detective will delight in this collection of loony traffic laws, crazy cabbies, ridiculous road races, and other automotive anecdotes. When it comes to entertaining young readers, Encyclopedia Brown takes a back seat to no one.
