One Amazon Reviewer says:
The Encyclopedia Brown series is great. This book is obviously written a few years back since two of the stories in the book talk about kids smoking, but the storyline still keeps them reading. My daughter and I read this book together this morning and we enjoyed seeing who could figure out how he solved the cases. Each story has a mystery to solve and then at the back of the book it shows why Encyclopedia Brown came to the conclusion he did. We had a great time reading them all together.
I would recommend this series to anyone who has children 2nd-5th grade level. It is also a great learning time if you read them together, like the boy who was smoking etc… Different times we live in, but the stories are great none-the-less!
