Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A Civil War sword, missing roller skates, a trapeze artist's inheritance, a ghost who whistles, eight stuffed penguins... Is there any case this kid can't crack? Introduce your favorite bookworm to boy detective Encyclopedia Brown, fifth-grade mastermind behind Idaville's police force, "a complete library walking around in sneakers." Each book is set up so that readers can try to solve the case along with the boy genius, and the answers to all the mysteries are found in the back. This introductory set includes four paperbacks: Donald J. Sobol's Encyclopedia Brown: Boy Detective (Book 1), Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Secret Pitch (Book 2), Encyclopedia Brown Finds the Clues (Book 3), and Encyclopedia Brown Gets His Man (Book 4). (Ages 7 to 12) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

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.
