The former children's librarian at our local library reminded me of this beloved series the other day. Immediately I checked out this book and eagerly anticipated sharing Encyclopedia Brown and his cleverness with my boys.
They loved solving the cases with me!
The book is divided up into cases. The reader is invited to solve the case with Encyclopedia with the solutions available in the back. Enough clues are given within the story that make it possible to solve, if one thinks! We were unable to solve two cases . . . one case we should have solved if we would have thought about it more but the other one required some schema we did not have.
*Highly recommend! So much fun!
