Encyclopedia Brown is an excellent series for readers of many ages--even those who have 'moved beyond' this reading level will enjoy matching wits with the kid detective and his many friends and foes, while also enjoying the humorous dialogue and narration (some of which is more humorous because it is a bit outdated). Though occasionally a mystery will be frustratingly difficult to solve because it involves technology that is no longer very commonly used (such as the mystery about CB radios) or ...more

Encyclopedia Brown was one of my favorite series when I was younger. At the time, there was only 3 or 4 books available at the library, and I remember borrowing them multiple times. The books are simple, there are multiple stories and you, as a reader, get to be a detective and try to solve the crime/problem. Solutions are in the back of the book. I am not sure, but it seems the newer books has a lot more shorts compared to the older ones. Regardless, the book kept me scratching my head, and the ...more

The answer to the first case is totally bogus, or at least I couldn't make any sense of it from the explanation given. The rest were ok though.

Also, after reading about 20 of these books, I'm wondering just how many times he has reused the left/right east/west clockwise/counterclockwise thing. We see it all the time, and twice in this book even.

My favorite case in this book was the Case of Pablos Nose. Someone stole Abraham Lincoln's nose. It was the kind of nose that had glasses and a mustache and eyebrows attached. A girl with a purple bicycle stole the nose. She tried to trick Encyclopedia.

This was a book I enjoyed as a child. It helped inspire in me a love of learning and helped to encourage my curiosity of the world around me. I would encourage grade schoolers to read this book--and reading with a parent is even better.
