Encyclopedia Brown #06: Encyclopedia Brown Keeps the Peaceby Donald J Sobol
Synopses & Reviews
Being on the school Safety Patrol is a big responsibility: can the kids in Room 3B handle it?
Nearly every kid in Room 3B is trying to get picked for the South School Safety Patrol Squad—especially Harry. Harry wants a star badge just like his grandpa's, so he works extra hard to be the perfect student: hanging up his jacket neatly, organizing the crayons in rainbow order, and—his favorite part—cleaning up sticky noodles off the floor after lunch. But Doug thinks someone is taking the power of Safety Patrol too far, maybe even using it to cheat at the Spring Book Fair Raffle! This is Harrys chance to stop the horrible bully and prove that he deserves a special star. Can he do it?
Not many series reach the 20-year mark, but this one is still going strong.”—Booklist on Horrible Harry Bugs the Three Bears

Encyclopedia Brown 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 fun—its classic Encyclopedia Brown!
I loved Encyclopedia Brown as a kid.”—Junot Diaz, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
