Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Midnight Visitor

by Donald J. Sobol Illustrated by Lillian Brandi

Solve some more puzzling mysteries with super sleuth Encyclopedia Brown!

Leroy Brown is back in the Encyclopedia Brown series. As Idaville's ten-year-old star detective, Encyclopedia has an uncanny knack for trivia. With his unconventional knowledge, he solves mysteries for the neighborhood kids through his own detective agency. But his dad also happens to be the chief of the Idaville police department, and every night around the dinner table, Encyclopedia helps him solve some of the most baffling crimes.

With ten confounding mysteries, not only does Encyclopedia have a chance to solve them, but readers are given all the clues as well and can chime in with their own solutions. Interactive and fun, it's classic Encyclopedia Brown!
