Reviews for Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Two Spies
Horn Book Guide Reviews 1994
In the nineteenth book featuring the boy detective of small-town Idaville, Leroy ""Encyclopedia"" Brown solves ten mysteries with his usual consummate skill. As always, readers can match wits with the fifth-grade sleuth before checking the solutions listed at the end. Illustrated with realistic line drawings, the cases vary in difficulty and include stories about a duck race, a manhole cover, and a violinist's chair. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Gr 3-6-More case histories from the 10-year-old detective. Encyclopedia Brown lives with his parents in Idaville, an ordinary seaside town, where his father is chief of police. He solves cases for his dad at dinner time, usually before dessert, and usually with just one question. Sobol's format is perfect for reluctant readers-the mysteries are short (about four pages), and the solutions appear at the back of the book. This series entry is sure to be a winner with Encyclopedia's fans, and should earn him new ones as well.-Tina Smith Entwistle, Oakley Park Elementary School, MI Copyright 1994 Cahners Business Information.
