The boy detective is back with ten new exciting adventures
Since 1963, when Dutton published Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective, the first book in the series, the brainy crime-stopper has been a favorite character among middle-grade readers. Following the classic formula, this new installment presents ten new mysteries, complete with answers at the end of the book that allow the reader to solve the cases along with the boy detective. Join Encyclopedia as he takes on cases of giant diamonds, lazy lions, a country singer, and of course a trip to the carnival.
Charlie Collier is back solving mysteries out of his parents' garage, and this one's a doozey! Actually, there may be more than just one mystery out there to solve. There's Charlie's friend Sherman's brother, who is missing. And then there's a series of robberies in town involving masked teenagers. Could they be related? Charlie has to get himself in a heap of trouble--like getting thrown in juvie!--to figure out what's going on.
Filled with action, adventure, humor and brain teasers, this is perfect for an older elementary school or young junior high school mystery fan.
