Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

 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

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:

He's got a knack for puzzling out the most twisted mysteries…

Charlie Collier is a whiz when it comes to brain teasers and word problems. He's also the go-to guy when friends and teachers find themselves in a pickle, but lately Charlie finds himself yearning for a big score. So he puts up signs around the school and waits in his parents' garage to see what mysteries stumble in. And one does! Soon Charlie finds himself hot on the trail of an evildoer and realizes he'll need more than smarts to solve this case. With the help of his trusty sidekick Henry, new client Scarlett, and code-cracking grandmother Charlie puts his reasoning skills to the ultimate test. But will that be enough to unravel this dangerous caper?
