I can't describe how or why the cases 'worked' without spoilers (since each is so short) but the cases are good two-to-five minute mysteries with a very reasonable solve-ability level.
There isn't a great variety of mysteries here. Whereas other Encyclopedia Brown books seemed to have a variety of characters and themes, this book is mostly either the Tigers--the bully group--or a kid selling something falsely for profit. Some of the twists/clues are the same as in other Encyclopedia Brown books.
So, in other words, it's a book. A new Encyclopedia Brown book. Nothing exciting, but for kids who love to read them, they'll be happy!
(Note: Much of this does not apply ONLY to this Encyclopedia Brown book; it applies to all the more recent ones.)
