Awesome encyclopedia

I love encyclopedia brown because it is so fun to find out who did it. This book is so fun to read for all ages because it challenges you and makes you think. I gave this book 5 stars because all ages can read it and it always goes very fast. I love all the encyclopedia books. Try them out. If your older they are a very fun read and if anyone does reading logs. It really helps you get to your page amount.

This book sucks you in because of all the mysteries that Leroy or encyclopedia Brown has to solve! All he needs is one clue and he can solve any mystery.

I really don't like these kinds of books. Elizabeth seemed to be okay with it. My reason for not liking it is it is nearly impossible to ever figure out the answer and I don't like mystery/ case kinds of books.

I loved that it was different mysteries each chapter and we liked trying to figure them out before we turned to the answer. My kids enjoyed it too and had me read almost the whole book in one day.

It's good, except at the end when Encyclopedia beats an indigent man with a hose.
