Joemyjoe’s #CBR4 Review #5: Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective by Donald Sobol
Encyclopedia Brown is a boy who’s real name is Leroy, but everyone calls him Encyclopedia because he knows everything about everything. He is so smart that he solves mysteries, just like a detective. His dad is the Chief of Police in their town, and Encyclopedia sometimes helps out on cases.
Some of the cases that he solves are: The case of the happy nephew, the case of the knife in the watermelon, and the case of the diamond necklace.
My favorite was the case of the knife in the watermelon. Encyclopedia’s friend Corky stuck a knife into someone else’s watermelon, but swore that he didn’t do it. Encyclopedia felt really bad that he had to prove that his friend did it.
There are lots of these books about Encyclopedia and his friends. I hope I can read another.
