Over all I thought this book was great with great mysteries filled with fun brain popping twists to them.
This was the first Encyclopedia brown books I have read and one of the first mystery books I have read and I thought it was great. This book is filled with cases like,
A tennis Shirt, A lone slice of pizza, A zebra's picture and more great fun mysteries. I would recommend this book for young readers because it will make them think.

One of the earliest book I read. I was in grade school when my sister brought me a copy of this as a gift. And despite of the number of books I learned to read, this book still remains one of my favorites.
It consists of a number of "cases", which Encyclopedia Brown will solve. The cases are not Nancy Drew or Sherlock Holmes type, but more of short, simple mysteries which are appropriate to pre-teeners.

"He had read more books than anyone in Idaville, and he never forgot a word. His pals said he was better than a library for getting answers. He was never closed." :):)

"They called themselves the Tigers. They should have called themselves the Spoons. They were always stirring up trouble." eh, hah, ehahha.

This book is awesome! Its a ton of little mysteries and at the end of them they will have a character solve it but leave you with a mystery and it will say "turn to page bla bla bla for the answer" Its really cool!

One of my favourites as a child.
I loved how you had to solve the mysteries yourself and then flip to the back to see if you were right.
I used to be very poor at it, but I got better as I read more and more.

Another book of Encyclopedia Brown. Some of them got me stumped...I love it! I do wish the stories were much longer though. Great book for young kids.

FINALLY one with a kindle-friendly format. And one I'd never read before to boot.
