Product Description

Solve some more puzzling mysteries with super sleuth Encyclopedia Brown!

Leroy Brown is back 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, 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!

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.

My granddaughter loves these books
Reviewed in the United States on October 7, 2020
My 6-year-old granddaughter can’t get enough Encyclopedia Brown books!! She goes through one in a day, then re-reads it several times. Her dad, my son, loved them when he was a little older than she is now.

These book tufned out to be a surprise for my fourth grader. She has discovered that she like mysteries and she usually know who did it before the end of the story. It is a great introduction to mysteries.

Our 7 yr old son loves this book series; we have bought MANY of them. This is each nights reading when we go to bed; we have to read at least 2 cases each evening, and figure out the clues. These books are fun reading, and actually challenge your kids to remember, comprehend and apply what they have read to figure out the answer to each case (and the solve for each case is found in the rear section of the book). Most boys would really enjoy these; I figure the girls would too, we just don''t have any at our house to take a vote on that!!!

Book came in terrible condition!
Reviewed in the United States on May 24, 2019
This was supposed to be brand new, but it came in terrible condition. The binding was all scratched up and dented. It looks like it had been rolled up vertically. Disappointing to receive a new book in this condition.
