Enough of format, on to content. This is an audiobook collection of the first two Encyclopedia Brown books. I've gone back to revisit this after being reminded of having read these pretty voraciously when I was in the target demographic. I still remember some of the trivia learned from reading these.
With greater perspective, I appreciate the desire to teach logical thought and attention to detail. However, these are significantly less engaging to me now as then. On the plus side, they're all over quickly, so they never really overstay their welcome. The first collection does a better job of maintaining logical consistency, whereas the second has more significant flaws.
The one thing that I don't recall noticing before...what on earth is up with Charlie Stewart? Does no one think it...odd...that he collects teeth? This boy has a jar of human teeth, and collects teeth of all other kinds. Did Mr. Brown somehow fail to observe this kid wearing all black while reading an EC horror comic inside a copy of M R James? He's going to be voted most likely to stuff another classmate in the trunk of a car. I just can't quite wrap my head around this kid.
