Thanks to this book, I'm going to start using the expression, "Cut the 'balloon juice'" whenever someone is spewing hot air.

We've been giving the boys some reading assignments because they're very good readers, but they won't stretch themselves if they don't have to. We assigned this book this past week for Drystan (almost 6 years old.)

I could see how this book would be a lot of fun for children. The mystery's are short enough and to the point for them to understand. They are fun and entertaining! I would have around forth or fifth graders read this book!

I recommend Encyclopedia Brown. I was 8 when I first encountered this series. I loved it. It was recommended by a boy that I liked. What I liked about these books is that it taught me how to think before making wild guesses. Each book had several cases which were easy to read and follow for a child. I recommend this to any parent looking for helping their child to use logic and deductive reasoning. Great on how to look at relevant facts at a child's level.

My dad and I are re-reading these "together" from across the country. This is the second one we've read.

Once again, I find myself unable to rate these without my childhood bias. I'm giving this 3 stars for nostalgia's sake, but this one was not my favorite. All of these books had solutions that make no sense, but this one had a LOT of them.

I've not been much of a mystery fan as an adult, but I loved this series, and read the ones in our library several times.

Encyclopedia Brown...not as awesome as I remembered. But fun to make fun of.
