Reviews - What do customers think about The Missing Book (Young Mandie Mystery Series #6)?
Great book for a 6 year old boy Oct 15, 2009
My two sons love this book. We read parts of it right before bedtime and they both love it (I have a 5 and 6 year old)
Encyclopedia Brown, Boy Detective Jul 18, 2009
Thanks to my awesome friend Talitha for making me revisit such an amazingly influential childhood book. I know this series inspired me to read many other mystery series, like Cam Jansen, Nancy Drew, and The Boxcar Children. It's probably why I still like suspenseful mystery novels today. I remember being frustrated over not knowing the solution--well, funnily enough, rereading the book, I still rarely ever knew what the solution to the case was until I read it! I love the do-it-yourself element to the mysteries, although all the page turning always got on my nerves. It gives kids this great feeling of, hey, look, Encyclopedia can be a detective and SO CAN I! This is definitely a favorite worth introducing to your kids, so both you and they can have fun trying to solve the mysteries! If you're not a kid, still worth the revisit, see how many of the old cases you can crack now.
Perfect for reluctant readers Jul 3, 2009
I've been tutoring my about-to-be-5th-grade nephew over the summer. He's a reluctant reader and writer and, remembering the Encyclopedia Brown books from my own childhood, and how much my little brother and I liked them, I ordered this book for him. Well, not only did he like this book, he read the entire thing in one day and has since checked out every EB book he can get his hands on at the library (earning all sorts of summer reading points). Encyclopedia Brown really does solve them all!
A new version for kids today. May 8, 2008
My 8 year old son 1st 4 in the Encyclopedia Brown books by Donald J. Sobol for Christmas but has yet to have read them. We discovered that they are "new" and the Volume 1-4 is different than the "old" Volume 1-4. He has loved these books. They are titled Boy Detective, Case of the Secret Pitch, Finds the Clues, and Gets His Man. As an extra bonus he was delighted to find out that his father had read these books too.
Outsmarting Encyclopedia Brown Dec 19, 2007
People who like mysteries should read this book. The mysteries I think are very hard to solve, but the reader can try to outsmart Encyclopedia Brown.
The main character is Leroy, a.k.a Encyclopedia Brown. And there are a bunch of stories in the book. It is not funny, it is suspenseful, entertaining and surprising. The theme of the book is about Leroy becoming a boy detective. The main event that happened was figuring out how the knife got in to the watermelon.
