Encyclopedia Brown Brown Solves Them All (Encyclopedia Brown, book 5) by Donald J Sobol
I recommended the first four books to my students and I've loved seeing how excited they are by the opportunity to try to solve Encyclopedia's mysteries along with him. My favorite thing continues to be that the solutions to the mysteries are all at the end of the book so they can't accidentally be spoiled if you want to think about it. My favorite mystery in this one would probably be the one about the cherries, the first mystery in the book. I liked that we were back to the logic puzzles instead of the obscure-knowledge puzzles.

I read all the books by Donald J. Sobol that our library had, and I'm lucky enough to own this one. Little brain teasers, based on facts and trivia. Sep 07, Izzy Smith added it. I found it really interesting and enjoyed tryna work out some of the mystery myself! I loved reading these books as a kid! Nov 04, Leta rated it really liked it. This got left at rehearsal and - for the price of returning it to the school library that owns it - I was allowed to take it home to read.
I loved these books when I was a kid they must have made a real impact on me because I realized as I was re-reading this one that I still remember the revealing fact decades after having originally read the book. Recently I made an Encyclopedia Brown reference and no one knew what I was talking about. Jeez, what planet did you grow up on.
Dec 29, Hannah rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Mystery Lovers. So far I love this one moore than any other in the series. It has alot of harder puzles and they were not as easy to figure out. View 2 comments. Jul 13, Andreia added it. I remember always trying to figure out the cases on my own. Still one of the strangest towns filled with the strangest kids and adults. So I just read this book to my son last night and I was shocked.
I realize that this was written in the 60's and that it was a different time but hot damn, it was racially insensitive at times and flat out racist at others. I didn't remember this book having so many allusions to Native Americans Indians in the vernacular of the day and "redskin" at one point. It makes me so sad. I'm going to have to get rid of this book but where to, I have no idea. Jul 26, Allison Renner added it Shelves: children , tween , childhood. Dec 16, Xander Kennedy rated it liked it. Something that the kids and I enjoy contemplating. Some are more satisfying than others.

Shelves: , middle-grade , childrens. This is another fun edition of short mysteries in the Encyclopedia Brown series of books by Donald J.

I loved these stories as a child and I'm so glad that I'm able to share them with our girls now. We enjoyed reading this book together and we will certainly read more of the books in this series soon!
Same basic formula. Still the occasional shoddy logic getting to the conclusion or one of many plausible conclusions. Sure, Sobol didn't understand deaf culture. Sure, he seemed to have little regard for Native Americans, past or My question, aside from "when the hell did they build multiple synagogues in Idaville? It was Not like Sobol needed a colored theate Same basic formula. Not like Sobol needed a colored theater , but it probably would have stood as acceptable in this imaginary Florida.
But one would think that food would trump movies. People need to eat. There has been, to date, a dearth of restaurants and eateries. Just boggles the mind. With ten confounding mysteries in each b Leroy Brown is back in the next six books in the Encyclopedia Brown series. I'd never read any of them before. The book is about a boy nic-named Encyclopedia.
