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.
