How Idaville remains crime-free has always been a mystery. The only people who know the truth are Chief Brown, Mrs. Brown, and their son, Encyclopedia--America's supersleuth in sneakers. Encyclopedia's parents wish they could tell the world about their brilliant son, but who would believe that the secret weapon in Idaville's war on crime is in the fifth grade?

Donald J. Sobol was the author of the highly acclaimed Encyclopedia Brown series and many other books. His awards include a special Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for his contribution to mystery writing in the United States, and the Pacific Northwest Library Association Young Readers’ Choice Award for Encyclopedia Brown Keeps the Peace.From Booklist:
Gr. 3^-6. Although he's been updated--he's sporting jeans and a work shirt on the dust jacket--Encyclopedia Brown is still Idaville's number-one brain and crime stopper. (Idaville's been updated, too. It's got a deli and a synagogue.) What hasn't changed are the short, entertaining mysteries, and their ability to keep kids guessing. This time out, Encyclopedia uses wordplay to figure out a safe's combination, one of the presidents to catch a forger, and a wallet full of money to prove that a thief was blind. As usual, a good and fun workout for the brain. Pencil illustrations pepper the text. Ilene Cooper
