Description

Product Description

For fifty years, Encyclopedia Brown has been the best boy detective on the block and a favorite character for generations of middle-grade readers. Following the classic formula, this installment presents ten mysteries, complete with answers at the end of the book that allow the reader to solve the cases, too. Join Encyclopedia as he takes on the cases of an African killfish, a library book vandal, and a nail-biting soccer game.

Both my sons loves these!
Reviewed in the United States on August 11, 2021
I read these as a child and now my sons love them too. Great tools for ensuring reading comprehension because kids really need to listen to the details to solve the crime! My older son is 11, the younger son is 8.

Good Book
Reviewed in the United States on June 14, 2021
This book is not for reading on a tablet or phone. 5th grader likes it but you need to have book in hand to read so you can look at the end of the book to find answers

Third grade reading
Reviewed in the United States on September 16, 2015
We bought this for our third grader, but we all enjoy trying to figure out the mysteries. I think it''s good for critical thinking skills; he has to pay attention to all the details if he wants to solve the puzzle.

Not as good as the original Encyclopedia Brown stories
Reviewed in the United States on May 23, 2018
Not as good as the original Encyclopedia Brown stories...the "mysteries" have a lot of holes in the plot in these newer versions.

I purchased this for my Kindle app when I heard Donald J. Sobol, Encyclopedia Brown''s creator, passed away last year. The stories were just as I remembered them when I was younger. While Mr. Sobol obviously did not plan this to be the last group of cases, the lack of usual characters made for some unfamiliar but welcome stories. Also, the final case in the book doesn''t even feature Encyclopedia! Sally gets to solve the case.

Still, for those of us who remember how these stores would go will find lots to like here. And a few of the cases are harder than you may think. R.I.P., Mr. Sobol.

As an adult, I can usually find mistakes in his books. I will be purposely vague so that I do not spoil the stories. I would worry about the honesty of 45. Even after reading his explanation, I still do not understand how one regular bike pedal can move forward while the other moves backward in some fashion other than the normal circular movement. There are a couple of stories based on word play, e.g. someone said too much. But this book has more fact based stories where you need to know some fact, common or exotic, in order to solve the mystery. The answer to one story is even very clever. There are no stories based on a knowledge of US culture, so the book can be read around the world. In conclusion, there is no decline in the quality from the previous books and the book is worth buying.

Encyclopedia Brownシリーズの第18作目。今回もこれまでの作品同様、10件の様々な事件が、両親との会話の中や、車庫の探偵事務所から展開するエピソードなどを通して、見事に解決されていく。

今回 Encyclopedia が取り組む「事件」は、

1) The Case of the Friendly Watchdog:Langs 夫妻の留守中宝石が盗まれた。その間2人の委託業者が庭に出入りしたが、番犬 Morris は家に侵入した男に何故吠えかからなかったのだろうか?
2) The Case of the Red Roses:不良グループ The Tigers の Bugs と Duke が Robby に万引きの罪を着せようとするが、その時展示棚のバラの鉢が…。
3) The Case of the Jelly-Beans Holdup:ジェリービーンズの数当てゲームの最中、Butch にそそのかされた Pete が水鉄砲で武装し、店主Whitten さんの姪の Trudy を脅す。両手を挙げた彼女を見て Butch は…。
4) The Case of the Soccer Scheme:Chipmonks と Cobras のチャンピオン争いは 0-1で Cobras の勝ちに終わったが…。
5) The Case of the Hole in the Book:タバコを押し付けた跡の残った本が図書館のトイレで見つかった。借り出したのは 4人。犯人を名指しする 3文字の暗号文が届くが…。
6) The Case of the April Fool’s Plot:新聞のせいでドアが開けられなかったとの苦情が Miller さんから入り Chuck は新聞配達を首になった。Millers さんの娘 Lily は Chuck が新聞をドアにかんぬきのように掛けるの見たと言うが…。
7) The Case of Wiford’s Big Deal:町一番の怠け者で儲け話をでっち上げては子供たちを惑わす Wilford。今回は砂漠で金鉱を掘り当てたという Bruno を連れて来たが…。
8) The Case of the Ten-Dollar Bike:Mitzi は年上の Agatha に頼み込まれ彼女の自転車を10ドルで買うことにし手打ち金 5ドルを支払ってしまった。ところがペダルに不具合が…。
9) The Case of the Hidden Money:退役軍人で軍用車両売買商の Lou の事務所から大金が盗まれた。事務所に入ったのは 2人の客と 3人の店員だけだったが…。
10) The Case of Lovely Lana:Ginger はペットの飼育に詳しい Earl のアドバイスで killifish (カダヤシ:メダカに似た小型の魚)を買い Lovely Lana と名付けて育て、今年の品評会に出品した。Earl の飼っている Prince は去年一等賞をとったのだが…。

の10件だ。

本巻の事件の中には 7) のように「頻繁に使われる『お馴染みの』謎解き」が出てきて少々気になるが、それ以外はこれまでの作品同様ユニークなお手並みでの落着で、流石だと思わせる。Encyclopedia Brownは、探偵小説の宣伝文句 (blurb) に良くある「お馴染みの」 head-scratching(頭を掻き掻き)、brain-wracking(脳を苦しめ)ながら、でも entertaining(楽しく時を過ごせる)という褒め言葉がピッタリのシリーズである。
