    I could say that I loved the Encyclopedia Brown series as a kid, but that wouldn t be entirely accurate I wanted to be Encyclopedia Brown When you re the nerdy kid on your block, and you discover a character who is the smartest kid in school, kind of popular despite that fact, can not only stand up to but often humiliate the local bully, and gets to hang out with the prettiest girl in the school Yeah, you re gonna wish life imitated art in that case And in my mind, it actually seemed kind I could say that I loved the Encyclopedia Brown series as a kid, but that wouldn t be entirely accurate I wanted to be Encyclopedia Brown When you re the nerdy kid on your block, and you discover a character who is the smartest kid in school, kind of popular despite that fact, can not only stand up to but often humiliate the local bully, and gets to hang out with the prettiest girl in the school Yeah, you re gonna wish life imitated art in that case And in my mind, it actually seemed kind of possible I was determined to seek out neighborhood wrongdoings, solve some petty crimes, and maybe even win a few friends in the process I went so far as to paint my own detective agency sign and everything which my mom proceeded to laugh at When your mom laughs at you, you know right then and there it ain t gonna work.The books were still pretty fun, though, even if my all too honest mom made it clear I was never going to get to actually live them out in real life But like so many kids books that have been continually reprinted through the ages, to older covers were a lot better than what I m seeing up there This kid here is way too hip to be the Leroy Encyclopedia Brown I grew up with

    Give this to the nearest 6 10 year old or adult who wants to be 6 10 years old again It isn t the can you solve it, too mystery aspect, although that s fun enough, it s the attitude Brown loves and doesn t fear a good problem, he wants to help people, he has a good relationship with his family, his friends trust and accept one another while recognizing their individuality, and the underlying sense of justice, both moral and civil, is a valuable lesson to every kid and a valuable refreshe Give this to the nearest 6 10 year old or adult who wants to be 6 10 years old again It isn t the can you solve it, too mystery aspect, although that s fun enough, it s the attitude Brown loves and doesn t fear a good problem, he wants to help people, he has a good relationship with his family, his friends trust and accept one another while recognizing their individuality, and the underlying sense of justice, both moral and civil, is a valuable lesson to every kid and a valuable refresher course for everyone else s adulthood certification.The Hardy Boys solve mysteries as adventure Nancy Drew solves mysteries as an obsession Jupiter Jones solves mysteries as ego Danny Dunn solves mysteries as education All of these are good and fun and laudable and worthwhile for kids to learn from.If you only have one message to teach a young friend, Encyclopedia Brown solves mysteries because a he has skill to keep exercised, b he cares about the kids who come to him, and c he has his father s sense of justice and service That s the one I d pick.But make sure your young friend knows about Jupiter Jones and Danny Dunn as well

    A sudden fit of nostalgia prompted me to buy and read this It took like half an hour It was pretty fun I love the old school vision of America, sorta Tom Sawyer y, where boys spun eggs for fun and 25 cents was a treasure.Most of the mysteries are not as mysterious as I remember them You know how each story ends with How did Encyclopedia Brown solve the case Flip to page 80 to find out and you gotta figure out what his big clue was Well, it s generally pretty obvious One of them got me A sudden fit of nostalgia prompted me to buy and read this It took like half an hour It was pretty fun I love the old school vision of America, sorta Tom Sawyer y, where boys spun eggs for fun and 25 cents was a treasure.Most of the mysteries are not as mysterious as I remember them You know how each story ends with How did Encyclopedia Brown solve the case Flip to page 80 to find out and you gotta figure out what his big clue was Well, it s generally pretty obvious One of them got me but it was totally cheap And the last one, where view spoiler you figure it out because As every one knows, a hard boiled egg spins faster than a raw one hide spoiler Yeah, I didn t know that Although I figured it out anyway from context and because I m a fucking genius.Anyway, it was a fun way to kill half an hour Sure, it s worth buying for your ten year old

    Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective by Donald J Sobol was a great series, and I think I read all of them More than once I thank or blame this series for starting me on my love of the mystery genre These are gateway books Finishing this series will lead one to read the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew series, then to Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Parker and Sue Grafton, until one day you find yourself strung out on Lee Child or Robert Crais Be forewarned

    So I ve gone back to revisit this after being reminded of having read these pretty voraciously when I was in the target demographic I still remember some of the trivia learned from reading these.With greater perspective, I appreciate the desire to teach logical thought and attention to detail However, these are significantly less engaging to me now as then On the plus side, they re all over quickly, so they never really overstay their welcome The one thing that I don t recall noticing before So I ve gone back to revisit this after being reminded of having read these pretty voraciously when I was in the target demographic I still remember some of the trivia learned from reading these.With greater perspective, I appreciate the desire to teach logical thought and attention to detail However, these are significantly less engaging to me now as then On the plus side, they re all over quickly, so they never really overstay their welcome The one thing that I don t recall noticing beforewhat on earth is up with Charlie Stewart Does no one think itoddthat he collects teeth This boy has a jar of human teeth, and collects teeth of all other kinds Did Mr Brown somehow fail to observe this kid wearing all black while reading an EC horror comic inside a copy of M R James He s going to be voted most likely to stuff another classmate in the trunk of a car I just can t quite wrap my head around this kid
