Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Leroy Brown is back in the next six books in the Encyclopedia Brown series. 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 funit's classic Encyclopedia Brown!

Synopsis:

Leroy Brown, better known to all as Encyclopedia, is the ten-year-old son of the police chief of Idaville. Whenever Mr. Brown has a particularly difficult case, he brings it home for his son to deal with. A missing ambassador to Latin America, the case of Smelly Nellie and the ambergris, a client who wants to pay with an 1861 Confederate silver half-dollar (worth about $5000) - these and seven more puzzling cases keep Encyclopedia Brown busy.
