    " Any Encyclopedia Brown book is awesome. These are good for 3rd or 4th graders, especially those who love mysteries. The stories are fun and intriguing, and that Encylcopedia Brown boy is just so smart! They are hard to figure out, but you will love trying! The plots are very well-thought out and I have always enjoyed reading them! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 2/13/2009
