One thought on “Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective

  1. Bill

    I could say that I loved the Encyclopedia Brown series as a kid, but that wouldn t be entirely accurate I wanted to be Encyclopedia Brown When you re the nerdy kid on your block, and you discover a character who is the smartest kid in school, kind of popular despite that fact, can not only stand up to but often humiliate the local bully, and gets to hang out with the prettiest girl in the school Yeah, you re gonna wish life imitated art in that case And in my mind, it actually seemed kind of pos [...]

    Give this to the nearest 6 10 year old or adult who wants to be 6 10 years old again It isn t the can you solve it, too mystery aspect, although that s fun enough, it s the attitude Brown loves and doesn t fear a good problem, he wants to help people, he has a good relationship with his family, his friends trust and accept one another while recognizing their individuality, and the underlying sense of justice, both moral and civil, is a valuable lesson to every kid and a valuable refresher course [...]

    A sudden fit of nostalgia prompted me to buy and read this It took like half an hour It was pretty fun I love the old school vision of America, sorta Tom Sawyer y, where boys spun eggs for fun and 25 cents was a treasure.Most of the mysteries are not as mysterious as I remember them You know how each story ends with How did Encyclopedia Brown solve the case Flip to page 80 to find out and you gotta figure out what his big clue was Well, it s generally pretty obvious One of them got me but it was [...]

    Things I have learned today I probably shouldn t become a detective I am no better at Encyclopedia Brown than when I was littleThese books are such a throwback to childhood I remember being so happy when a new one that I hadn t read would appear in my local library.Each case is pretty short 5 10 pages and ends with a how did Encyclopedia know he was the thief You have to turn to the end to get the answer, which I ll say is a pretty entertaining way of reading, especially for kids It gets them in [...]

  5. Scott Rhee

    Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective by Donald J Sobol was a great series, and I think I read all of them More than once I thank or blame this series for starting me on my love of the mystery genre These are gateway books Finishing this series will lead one to read the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew series, then to Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Parker and Sue Grafton, until one day you find yourself strung out on Lee Child or Robert Crais Be forewarned

    I used to like this series when I was little Much so than I liked Nancy Drew in fact, I think Nancy Drew may be one of the most overrated children s book characters out there.I liked Encyclopedia Brown s books because they were short, and I could often figure out the solution to the mystery on my own Granted, the evidence Encyclopedia cites is often very weak, and would never stand up in court, but still, not bad for a ten year old.I do think his police chief father needs to retire He lives in [...]

    I never read these books when I was a child,but now that I m going through my second childhood I thought I would give it a go.It s nice to spend time in gentler times.I managed to solve a few of the crimes and considered becoming a detective,but I don t think I could survive on 25 cents a day plus expense.Do kids still read these books.I d like to think so.

    I picked up this book because Barry Lyga made mention of it on his blog I recall knowing the name but had never read an Encyclopedia Brown book until recently Growing up with a dual form of dyslexia I did not read a lot of books when I was younger In fact it was high school before I really became a reader And maybe that is why I read across so many genres and love reading a good children s, middle grade or young adult book I am very glad I added these books to me to be read list It is always int [...]

    So fun rereading this book from my childhood In case you re not familiar with Encyclopedia Brown, here s what happens He is a boy detective 10 years old who gets paid, mostly by neighbor hood kids, to solve mysteries So each chapter is a different case The client lays out the details, Encyclopedia geez, that s mouthful What do his friends call him thinks about it for a while, sometimes doing a little investigating, and then he announces he has the solution The reader has the opportunity to try a [...]

    Oh Leroy Encyclopedia Brown If only every town s criminal activity involved puns and word problems Criminals in Idaville are bad at two things telling lies and getting away with crime Thanks to a ten year old nerd and his friend Sally It s bizarre that despite being the CHIEF OF POLICE, the kid s father brings home work every night and has poor Leroy solve all the town s crime over dinner I always found that kind of sad even as a child Of course my parents are high flying medical professionals w [...]

    As I ve gotten older, I think I ve gotten cleverer, because I remember reading this book as a child and NEVER being able to guess the solutions I got about 2 3 this time around Whee My daughter struggled with it the same as I did, which led to a certain amount of frustration as we read this book for school I helped her through some of the puzzles, but I think it helped her when I honestly couldn t come up with the solution either It takes a certain kind of mindset to solve the cases an attention [...]

    I loved this series as a kidd may have read it when last week in the closet Though when you think of it, a lot of his evidence isn t very sound Like this kid destroyed a tent because he was wearing short sleeves

  14. Maria Carmo

    Going back to youth books can be a funny experience for instance, this book has ten short detective stories in which the reader can try to guess who the culprit is, and why It is an insteresting exercise for our grey cells , as Poirot would put it Maria Carmo,Lisbon, 9 December 2016.

    Speaking of Encyclopedia Brown, I can remember this one time when my cousin was over for the weekend and we were playing DD and video games all weekend and ran out of pop I was going to ride my bike up to the store to get some The store was about 8 miles away, by the way.It was raining pretty hard that day, but I didn t care I had ridden in the rain before and I really wanted some pop Only problem is, my bike had a flat so I needed to use my little brother s bike.Well, he was trying to tell me t [...]

    Ten Second Synopsis Boy detective Encyclopedia Brown s first collection of cases.In case you haven t come across these books before, they are set out like a book of short stories the case of the missing this, the case of the mysterious that but with one fun twist Each story ends on a cliffhanger, with Encyclopedia claiming he has solved the casebut leaving the reader to figure out the solution for themselves The solutions for each case are provided at the back of the book and I distinctly rememb [...]

    So I ve gone back to revisit this after being reminded of having read these pretty voraciously when I was in the target demographic I still remember some of the trivia learned from reading these.With greater perspective, I appreciate the desire to teach logical thought and attention to detail However, these are significantly less engaging to me now as then On the plus side, they re all over quickly, so they never really overstay their welcome The one thing that I don t recall noticing beforewhat [...]

  18. Robert

    I began reading Encyclopedia Brown in fourth grade I continue to read them in fourth grade as a teacher We have one story in our anthology As we approach that each year, I read the students other stories so they are familiar with the formula.Encyclopedia is pretty smart and solves all the crimes in Idaville Every now and then, a solution requires knowledge beyond my students understanding I think it is of a generational thing.The only negative I have found, and this is since I have begun reread [...]

    Very fun There were several things I really liked about this one First, it s the first children s mystery series I ve found with a boy as the main character Second, I LOVED that the solutions to the mysteries were all at the back of the book, so they couldn t accidentally be spoiled if you wanted to figure them out for yourself.And I also thoroughly enjoyed that the solutions to the mysteries were often simple word plays They reminded me a lot of brain teasers or riddles rather than actual myste [...]

    The premise is straightforward Leroy Encyclopedia Brown is the ten year old son of the chief of the Idaville Police Department Because he is very bright and because he reads a lot of books and because he is a keen and critical observer, he has all the skills necessary to solve crimes So he opens his own detective agency and charges clients twenty five cents plus expenses to solve crimes and other mysteries There are, to date, 26 volumes in the series, the most re show

  21. Steph

    I can t believe I ve never picked up an Encyclopedia Brown book until now I love the short cases and the solutions that you can find in the back of the book They re an awesome level for third and fourth graders and while some are super hard, a bunch of the cases are definitely able to be solved with some out of the box thinking

  22. Mary Ronan Drew

    Published in 1963 this is the first of the Encyclopedia Brown series Each book has a handful of short mysteries, the solutions of which hinge on some subtle hint from the story.

  23. Krista

    Need a book that is engaging, fosters higher level thinking, AND requires deep comprehension If so, this is the book for you Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective is a fun brain game for all ages The story revolves around a young boy named Leroy, but everyone except his parents call him Encyclopedia His nickname is legendary within his small town because of his incredible quickness in solving problems and his depth of knowledge Encyclopedia s out of the box thinking helps his police detective father [...]

  24. Sarah

    This idea is a wonderful 3 5th grade series of books because it helps students identify mysteries and enhances their skills of deductive reasoning and observation When I was reading this book, I missed the two first mysteries clues and felt that Encyclopedia was too smart for me, a 21 year old adult But then I started to catch on and I figured out the solutions to the mysteries before the story even ended I do feel, however that there is always an attempt for Donald Sobol to write a happy ending [...]

    Non so se ha mai raggiunto l Italia, ma da circa cinquant anni in America ha fatto immensa fortuna un personaggio davvero singolare quello di Nancy Drew Una giovane detective dai capelli biondi e gli occhi svegli, tra una serie lunghissima di romanzi gialli a diversi giochi del mistero per PC con il suo nome sopra, questo piccolo fenomeno pu vantarsi di aver cresciuto numerose generazioni di ragazze.Invece, forse a causa della molto pi popolare diffusione di detective adulti come Holmes o Poirot [...]
