Encyclopedia Brown Saves the Day By Donald Sobol ? Wow, that was a hard one. Oh, sorry, didn't see you there. I was just reading about Encyclopedia Brown ,son of the chief of police. You see, in these mini-mystery stories, Encyclopedia Brown solves all the baffling cases that come to Idaville. Oh, did I not tell you about Idaville? Well, he lives there. And actually, instead of just solving the baffling ones for the police, he has his own summer stand for persons that have a mystery they can't solve themselves. What I mostly love about these stories is that it gives you a chance to solve it yourself. I reccomend this book for mystery and adventure lovers, though if you just love all books, your going to love this one a lot!! I also reccomend that if you just have some spare time in the morning(because I know your always busy) and you want to warm your brain up, read this!!! I rate this book 5 out of 5 baseballs. It's a mystery where this book got hit to!!!!!!!!!!!!! ooooo
