      • content: davina - I felt like trying a new series. I randomly picked this one and thought I would hate it. But, I was very wrong! I liked it so much. There are ten cases in each Encyclopedia Brown book (as far as I know). You can read about the case in each chapter. In the end of the chapter there will be a question. You have to try to figure out the answer to the question. In the end of the chapter it also tells you to turn to a page number to figure out the answer. This is just an amazing book by author Donald J. Sobol in my opinion!

        September 16, 1985
        There will be a brisk demand for Sobol's new book about the boy detective whose adventures have been bestsellers for years. Lively drawings by Owens illustrate 10 cases that Leroy (Encyclopedia) solves and invites readers to puzzle out. In the title story, it seems that odd handprints will make a wheelchair-bound guest a suspect in the theft of his host's valuables. But Encyclopedia recognizes the red herring, absolves the innocent and clinches the case against the culprit. The clues are presented fairly and the solutions are appended for stumped whodunit fans. A simultaneous publication is Encyclopedia Brown's 3rd Record Book of Weird & Wonderful Facts, with pictures by Sal Murdocca; $10.25 ISBN 0-688-05705-5 .
