Description

Product Description

Leroy Brown is back in the next six books in the Encyclopedia Brown series. As Idaville’s ten-year-old star detective, Encyclopedia has an uncanny knack for trivia. With his unconventional knowledge, 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 some of the most baffling crimes. With ten confounding mysteries in each book, not only does Encyclopedia have a chance to solve them, but readers are given all the clues as well and can chime in with their own solutions. Interactive and fun—it’s classic Encyclopedia Brown!

About the Author

Donald J. Sobol was the author of the highly acclaimed Encyclopedia Brown series and many other books. His awards include a special Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for his contribution to mystery writing in the United States, and the Pacific Northwest Library Association Young Readers’ Choice Award for Encyclopedia Brown Keeps the Peace.

My 10 year old son loves this book series! He doesn’t “love” to read, but he does enjoy these books very much, so he doesn’t put up too much of a fuss for reading time.

EB is a great junior fiction series disregard to help young people think. Always engaging and concise. I think the biggest strength is also it’s biggest weakness. Moreover, that attribute is the diversity of its specific of cases. If you are interested in that case then you will be enthralled. However, if you have no interest in that case subject it’s difficult to be engaged in the book. That being said one of my favorite junior fiction series.

My 9 year old son is smart which includes being head-strong; and loves to read nonfiction. These series of books has caught his attention (after I bribed him to read the first chapter, he was hooked after that). He will read the entire book in an evening and then ask to get the next one. I will quiz him on the content of what he read and he is able to pick up the details of the events as well as why/how Encyclopedia Brown solved the case. Overall: these books keep my son reading!

I really love the Encyclopedia Brown Books. I really enjoy seeing them on the Kindle and they are fun little puzzler stories to read to my kids and see if they can solve them. Can''t say enough how enjoyable the logic that some of the thinking that goes on with these stories is great teaching tool for my kids as well.
So why the two star listing? Well the formatting sucks and sucks harder than a brand new Hoover vacuum on a shag carpet. There is no link between the solution and the story nor the next story in the series. So you have either have to create a link to the solutions individually for each of the or create a link to the solutions chapter and then flip back to the stories. This is an issue that nearly all of the Penguin Ebook editions published today have had. It is annoying and aggravating since this should have been something easily created when the book was originally ported over to an ebook standard. I mean I have seen self-published books in similar genres that have hot links going back and forth between solutions or maps or appendices over to the main text. So that is why the two star listing.
