KID DETECTIVE: ENCYCLOPEDIA BROWN
Encyclopedia Brown is a fictional boy detective, the son of a local police chief in the fictional town of Idaville. His real name is Leroy, but was given the nickname Encyclopedia for obvious reasons. His brainy smarts and ability to recall all sorts of information make him a walking encyclopedia.
Encyclopedia solves all his cases by closing his eyes and concentrating on the mystery at hand. Then he asks a single question from which he solves the case. In short, he is a junior Sherlock Holmes.The twenty-nine book series was written by Donald J. Sobol. The first book published in 1963. The popular middle grade books were followed by both a popular comic strip and a T.V. series.
