Gr. 3^-6. Twelve-year-old science sleuth Einstein Anderson (last seen in Einstein Anderson Sees through the Invisible Man, 1983) returns to solve 10 more short mysteries. Using the deductive reasoning of Sherlock Holmes and an advanced knowledge of science and technology, Einstein is able to unravel brainteasers that boggle everyone else. Clues are presented in short chapters, and readers are given a chance to solve the puzzle before turning the page for Einstein's solution. S. D. Schindler's black-line drawings provide an inviting format for younger readers. The loosely linked chapters span an entire school year, and the fact that several characters are involved in more than one case should please readers looking for a cohesive story. Give this to graduates of Sobol's Encyclopedia Brown series as well as science and mystery fans. Kay Weisman
