Description

Product Description

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.

I read Encyclopedia Brown books when I was a kid 40 years ago. I saw these on Amazon and immediately bought a few for my 8 year old daughter. She''s an advanced reader and once she starts one of these books, she can''t put it down. I also bought these because the mysteries included help develop critical thinking, which is not emphasized in school enough these days. After she reads the multiple stories in these books, I let her try to solve it before checking the back of the book and we talk through the facts presented and I let her think through the logic and explain it to me and she loves the AHA! moment when talking through the facts leads to her solving the mystery. Good for critical thinking and spending quality time with your kids.

My granddaughter loves these books

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.

I remember reading these when I was a kid and was glad to see Encyclopedia back with some new stories.

They are great because they make you CONCENTRATE on the stories to find the clues to solve the mysteries. My son and I take turns, each reading a page aloud, until we get to the end of the story then we discuss what we think happened and why. Sometimes we are right and sometimes we are wrong. It''s alot of fun and it helps him learn to "find the details" in the stories.

If you have a grade/middle school child, I''d highly recommend any of these books.

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.

The Case of the Murdered Skierと p.31. The Case of the Coin Collector の焼き直し。また、5)、7)、8)、9) は More Two-Minute Mysteries の p.55. The Case of the Model Universe、p.111. The Case of the Timely Neigh、p.75. The Case of the Provoked Assault、p.87. The Case of the Second Willの焼き直しだ。 10話中6話が rehash なので、4/10=2/5で、星2つの判定。ただし、著者の昔の作品に馴染みのない読者にとっては、焼き直しでも「面白いこと」は確かだ。
