So why the two stars? Well the formatting sucks, it sucks worst than a Kirby Vacuum that has been souped up Tool Time Style. There is no hyperlink to the solutions page. There is no chapter listing for the solutions page either, so it makes it hard to navigate the book. The worst the way the formatting was done at times you are presented a page that has just a title, or a picture or even just a caption to a picture then you scroll to the next page of text. I have seen free kindle and home publishing kindle books better formatted than this book. Bought the next in the series and it only gets downhill from there. You would think that Penguin Publishing would know how to do this.
Each book is a series of short mysteries (5-10 pages each) ending with a question - usually "how did Encyclopedia know that X was responsible for the crime". The answer to each mystery is at the back of the book. Solving the mystery takes no special knowledge, but it does require paying attention to detail. Don't turn to the answer too fast.
This book is the third in the series, but the books do not have to be read in order. I loved the Encyclopedia Brown books when I was growing up. I am reading them again before I give them to my nephew who I hope will enjoy them as I did. (The target reading level is ages 9-12).
