    Neo and I finished the fourth collection of Encyclopedia Brown mysteries. These stories allow the reader to see Encyclopedia and those close to him in action as they solve crimes and expose all the criminals of Idaville, USA. In this collection, Encyclopedia looks into a blackmailed coffee grinds smoker (gross, I know), a vehicle that crashed into the ocean, and even a ghost haunting an old house. These five-minute mysteries are perfect for any time of day, though Neo and I found them perfect fo Neo and I finished the fourth collection of Encyclopedia Brown mysteries.

These five-minute mysteries are perfect for any time of day, though Neo and I found them perfect for a before bedtime stumping. Some stories have easy answers, while others left Neo and I scratching our heads! Great reading for people of all ages, particularly those who are closet sleuths. Neo mentioned that he really likes the stories, as they keep him thinking. I remember these stories were read to me when I was young as well, helping me become the problem solver I have become. He thoroughly enjoys listening to the stories and making an effort to uncover the clues that will help solve the cases. He mentioned that these are perfect stories for parent-child reading, but would be great for a good reader when they have time or are on a road trip.

    Read-aloud with the kids... It was fun even though it felt dated. They liked the challenge of solving the case and with short chapters it held their attention well.

    Quick to read as fun brain teasers. This one, however, included some humour with it.

    Enjoyable. But Encyclopedia Brown doesn't quite compare to the epicness of Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys! Enjoyable. But Encyclopedia Brown doesn't quite compare to the epicness of Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys!

    Encyclopedia Brown is not your normal fifth grader. He's a regular Sherlock! And your kids will appreciate the genius way in which he's able to put clues together ... and how you have to turn to the back of the book for the big reveal! It's a clever format that enables you to have a chance at solving the mystery and checking your theory! Ages: 9 - 13 Cleanliness: Golly, Gee Whiz, for Pete's sake, thank heavens and the like are used throughout. There are several town bullies and swindlers.

There is a teen that is caught smoking and vows to give it up. **Like my reviews? I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too. These reports give a complete break-down of everything in the book, so you'll know just how clean it is or isn't. I also have Clean Guides (downloadable PDFs) which enable you to clean up your book before reading it! Visit my website!

    The Encyclopedia Brown series never disappoints. It is very clever, and Encyclopedia is so likable and funny. Per tradition, Encyclopedia Brown Gets His Man has 10 short stories with cases to solve. Out of these, I think I solved 7 or 8 of them. A couple were really easy if you had been paying attention, but some were pretty tough. I think my favorite story was The Case of the Murder Man. It was different than the rest since it was about a play written by Encyclopedia instead of a case he had to s The Encyclopedia Brown series never disappoints.

I always love it when Bugs and the Tigers are at odds with Encyclopedia. And in this story they even start their own detective agency.

    I thought this was better than #3, but not quite as good as #1 or #2. There was significantly less racism/bigotry in this one (yes, I know, they were written in the 1960's, things were different) and there were more puzzle-type mysteries rather than mysteries that required knowledge of obscure facts. My favorite in this one was the mystery that Encyclopedia came up with to help his friend write the play. The change of approach was fun and refreshing.

    this is a very good book because it's interesting to me how this kid about 10 years old solves all these cases with the smallest mistakes. his dad is a policeman and the kid Leroy also called encyclopedia solves half of his cases. as i have been reading these books I've actually began to figure out some cases every once in a while. this is a very good book because it's interesting to me how this kid about 10 years old solves all these cases with the smallest mistakes. his dad is a policeman and the kid Leroy also called encyclopedia solves half of his cases. as i have been reading these books I've actually began to figure out some cases every once in a while.

    This was one of the later mysteries where the series took a dark turn and Encyclopedia has to figure out who killed Sally Kimball's baby. [Spoiler alert: In a shocking twist at the end, it turns out that Sally had an abortion.] This was one of the later mysteries where the series took a dark turn and Encyclopedia has to figure out who killed Sally Kimball's baby.

    There was a bit of longing when I read this book. Encyclopedia's father was so patient and caring with him. He helped Encyclopedia learn without hitting him or calling him stupid. I wish I had a father like Encycopedia's. There was a bit of longing when I read this book. Encyclopedia's father was so patient and caring with him.

    These are fantastic books. I loved them as a kid. You can solve the mysteries along with Encyclopedia Brown, all the clues are in the story. They make you think. Very recommended for young readers

    The entire Encyclopedia Brown series is a gift to all kids with inquiring minds and a penchant for trivia and facts.

    Encyclopedia Brown was one of my gateway drugs into mysteries. As a kid, I always tried to figure out the solution before I read it in the back. Not always successful, but I did try! Rereading them as an adult was straight-up nostalgia. The formula I remember from childhood was still there (you start to notice it when you read a lot of this series, especially in a row). The first puzzle is always from the Chief, told around the dinner table, the second is at the Brown Detective Agency. There is a Encyclopedia Brown was one of my gateway drugs into mysteries.

The formula I remember from childhood was still there (you start to notice it when you read a lot of this series, especially in a row). The first puzzle is always from the Chief, told around the dinner table, the second is at the Brown Detective Agency. There is always at least one case with Bugs Meany and the Tigers, including a corny expression or pun about how crooked they are. And Sally is the junior detective, Encyclopedia's muscle, and both the prettiest girl and the best athlete. And I still learn a little each time I read these! Despite the formula, they are great for building critical thinking with kids. Short stories let you get right into the puzzle, and are quick for short attention spans or quick reads when you only have a few minutes. And sometimes the puzzle depends on some obscure facts, but you learn a little then too. Encyclopedia debuted in the mid-60s. (FYI - The earlier ones like this sometimes show their age a bit more, in terms of language and stereotypes). I was reading them 25+ years ago. And I'd still recommend them to budding mystery readers.

    We have been reading some old Encyclopedia Brown books through our Corona isolation journey. They've been fun to revisit, to see them through my daughter's eyes - to have to explain so many references and moments because culturally they are so very different to now. Overall, they've aged fairly well. A few of the answers aren't actually 100% correct but I remember thinking that when I was young as well. We have been enjoying reading them together, for sure.

    It’s hard to write a review when it comes to a series where most of the stories are similar. This is my fourth read of the Encyclopedia Brown series. Although each mystery is unique, the plots are similar (I.e Bugs and his Tiger gang are usually the corrupts). Nevertheless, the mysteries are delightful and sometimes I even get stumped! Such an enjoyable short read.

    These books are still good to make the "little grey cells" function, but they become a trifle repetitive... Still a good challenge... Maria Carmo, Lisbon 3 January 2018.

    Nostalgic fun. Lots of very dated imagery (smoking coffee grounds in a corn cob pipe, anyone?) But the mysteries and the solutions all still hold.
