   Love the books hate the formatting.
Encyclopedia Brown books are the best fun for a kid who wants to exercise some of that brain power. The thing that sucks is the formatting for the books. From no hyperlinked solutions to the way page breaks are happening so that one can get a picture, a caption to a picture or even just the border to the beginning of a story for a page or two. Let the solutions alone are not even listed in the table of contents. You have to scroll through the last story or click at the end and scroll backwards. I mean that even home publishing efforts are better formatted than the three books I bought so far in the series.
   Mysteries and Puzzles
Encyclopedia Brown is a 5-year-old boy who solves mysteries, crimes and mysteries as easily and as unconsciously as breathing. Each book is a series of short mysteries ending with a question : how did X know that Encyclopedia was responsible for the crime? The answer to each mystery is located in the back of the book. The solution of the mystery requires no special knowledge, but it does require attention to detail. Don 't respond too quickly to the answer. When I grew up, I loved the Encyclopedia Brown books. I read them again before I give them to my nephew, who I hope will enjoy them as I did. Adults who like this series may also enjoy the books of Lateral Thinking Puzzles.
   Great books for my 9 year old son
My 9 year old son is smart, which includes being head-strong. , and loves to read non-fiction. These series of the books caught his attention. He will read the entire book in an evening and then ask for the next. I question him on the content of what he read and he is able to pick up the details of the events as well as why Encyclopedia Brown solved the case. Overall, these books keep my son reading!
   Great mysteries for kids
My children always get excited when we read a new book to order together! Teaches them to pay close attention to details and also to use logic!
   It's a mystery!
Brown is back at it! There is a case to be solved! There is a fantastic storyline and plenty of excitement! I give you a hint... it is not a SALES Pitch!
   Get 'em 'n read 'em to that kid!
This is one of the same books that my 4th Grade teacher would read to us in the 80s. I bought this one to read to my 5 yr. old and we both love it! All the clues are there and after you read it, flip back to the back and guess the outcome and solution. I will collect all the books I can find!
   Students love it!
I always try and get them to read the clues before we find the solution. As a result, they have become better observers!
