Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Jumping Frogs Reviews
More remarkable than Encylopedia's ability to solve crimes by asking just one question is his skill in inducing a full confession from criminals and trouble makers by noting a single inconsistency in their story. Amazing.
Bought this for Christmas for my frog - loving daughter, who just discovered encyclopedia brown. It seems to have been written by a different author, but the mysteries themselves were just as much fun as I remember from my own childhood. :-)
My 8-year-old is really "into" frogs, and likes Encyclopedia Brown mysteries, so this seemed like a good fit. In fact, she said that "Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective" was her favorite book of the summer. It's been so long since I've read any Encyclopedia Brown books, that I read this one, too. I was able to solve most of them, whereas, as a child, I could figure out very few. I don't think I read this particular book as a child. It's interesting reading that encourages kids to read.
Interesting to come back to Encyclopedia Brown after almost 30 years... almost too formulaic, though 20 books into something, it's hard to keep it fresh. Most interesting is some of the language and turns of phrase which are no longer seen - somewhat similar to some of the great phrases in screwball cinema of the 30's.
Yep, he's still around and as crafty as ever. Of the 10 cases in this book, I was only able to solve two of them without reading the solutions in the back.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.
A great childrens series about a younf boy detective. He solves the mysteries that go on in his town with the help of his friends and insight from his father the police officer.
When I got this I didn't realize it was a collection of ten mysteries. If each story had been longer it would have been better but to pack ten stories into 80 pages is kind of ridiculous.
I actually read the Kindle version of this book.
