Another book of Encyclopedia Brown. Some of them got me stumped...I love it! I do wish the stories were much longer though. Great book for young kids. Read full review

User Review  - Goodreads

One of my favourites as a child. I loved how you had to solve the mysteries yourself and then flip to the back to see if you were right. I used to be very poor at it, but I got better as I read more and more. Read full review
