Reviews for Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Disgusting Sneakers
School Library Journal Reviews 1991 January
Gr 3-5-- Encyclopedia Brown, solving crimes for his police chief father, returns with 10 new solve-it-yourself mysteries. As usual, a solution for each case is in the back of the book. In the title story, the children of Idaville are raising money for charity by staging a Disgusting Sneakers contest. Phoebe, last year's winner, has one of her sneakers stolen; Encyclopedia Brown knows that something is afoot and quickly solves the crime. This new collection, as addicting as its predecessors and accompanied by black-and-white line drawings that track all the fun, will be in demand by fans everywhere. --Nancy Doe Maday, Pikes Peak Library District, Colorado Springs Copyright 1991 Cahners Business Information.
