The young sneaker-clad super sleuth saves the day again in a collection of ten short mysteries that invite readers to puzzle out the solutions before consulting the answers in the back of the book. No mystery is too huge for Encyclopedia Brown, and there's no loengths that she won't go to crack the case!
Paperback, 80 pages

When I was younger I devoured every Encyclopedia Brown book I could get my hands on. I would read and re-read every one of them over and over again, enjoying the characters and the stories even though I already knew the solution to each mystery.

Unfortunately, in a world of Reading Counts and Accelerate Reader programs, the constant re-reading of the same book over and over again that gave me the fluency I have today is no longer encouraged. Quantity of books is favored over quality and students
Good, but not great, like all other E. Brown books. Encyclopedia's adventures are still drab and dull as usual, and the only enjoyable part about this book was during that one case where one dude very descriptively got beaten up. (SPOILER ALERT!) Pretty old-fashioned book, so it deserves nothing better than a "meh."

I remember loving these as a kid. Reading them as an adult, I find them very old-fashioned in an aw shucks kind of way. I can't really imagine a kid today would have much interest in them.

Best part of the book was when Sally beats up an older bully. Making a pretty girl the muscle? I guess that's why I liked them as a girl...
Sixty-five books in and Donald Sobel just keeps going!

I used to love these books as a kid and after coming across a few at a thrift store am finding that they make great bathroom reading now.

Encyclopedia Brown is cool. The mystery is a surprise until the very end. I like to guess who the bad guy is going to be.
