The books in this series are fourth grade primers on textual investigation. I was into these books. In each small book of the series, there is presented, a short story such as The Case of the Missing Roller Skates, and then some sort of inconsistency in the whereabouts of the skates. Encyclopedia goes about to locate the skates. In the back each vignette has the reader see if they can find the spot in the story where those skates had rolled under the dentist office couch. No, there was a slight slant in the floor leading the other way, or some other telling breadcrumb. And on, and on till the Skates were recovered. A clever book and simple in presentation about what story and books can do.
