Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Civil War sword...

A watermelon stabbing...

Missing roller skates...

A trapeze artist's inheritance...

And an eyewitness who's legally blind!

Theses are just some of the ten brain-twisting mysteries that Encyclopedia Brown must solve by using his famous computerlike brain. Try to crack the cases along with him--the answer to all the mysteries are found in the back!

Synopsis:

Whenever ten-year-old Leroy (nicknamed "Encyclopedia") Brown's father, Chief of Police of Idaville, had a difficult case, Encyclopedia always managed to solve it at the dinner table. So, he decided to open his own detective agency. "A sure-fire recipe--some school-boy wit, a little slapstick, a whodunit, and a puzzle."--"Christian Science Monitor."

Synopsis:

The third in a contemporary series just like Encyclopedia Brown, but with a little more brawn, and a lot more brainteasers!

Super-sleuth Charlie Collier is thinking about taking a hiatus from his detective agency to play a private eye in a school play—but when some real robberies stump the police, Charlie realizes that detective work really is his true calling.

He and his sidekicks Henry and Scarlett team up with Charlies grandma and her old buddy Eugene to set a trap for the robber—one theyre sure will catch him. But the trap doesnt work out quite the way they thought it would, leaving Charlie, Henry and Scarlett in grave danger.

This high-stakes adventure is filled to the brim with brainteasers. Charlie can solve them all—can you?

What people are saying about Charlie Collier's first caper:

“I loved reading The Homemade Stuffing Caper. The mystery is challenging. The many characters in the book are great fun. I look forward to reading the next Charlie Collier story, and the next, and the next, and the . . .”—David A. Adler, author of the Cam Jansen mysteries

 

The Homemade Stuffing Caper is an exciting mystery, full of jokes and puns, as well as brainteasers and lots of detective work. This may be the first mystery you dont want the detective to solve, because you wont want it to end!”—Bookpage

 

“Brisk and absorbing, author John Madormos debut tips its fedora to hard-boiled classics with its ‘sixth-grader meets Sam Spade narration.”—FamilyFun Magazine

 

“With mysteries to solve, codes to decrypt, and an extended cast of colorful characters in tow, this first in a new series offers lots of mystery fans to chew on and will leave them hungry for the next installment.”—Booklist
