Description

Product Description

Leroy Brown, aka Encyclopedia Brown, is Idaville neighborhood’s ten-year-old star detective. With an uncanny knack for trivia, 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 his most baffling crimes. And with ten confounding mysteries in each book, not only does Encyclopedia have a chance to solve them, but the reader is given all the clues as well. Interactive and chock full of interesting bits of information—it’s classic Encyclopedia Brown!

About the Author

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.

Best of the Enc-Brown bunch

All but one of the ''cases'' in the book were very good., and they were described or depicted with only the right amount of filler. I can''t describe how or why the cases ''worked'' without spoilers (since each is so short) but the cases are good two-to-five minute... See more

My students (2nd grade) absolutely LOVE encyclopedia Brown Books! I always try and get them to find the clues before we read the solution. Theyve become better observers as a result!

10話中6話が、著者の前3作からの「焼き直し」。ただ、それらに馴染みのない読者諸氏には、それでも面白い。

Encyclopedia Brown シリーズの第2巻目。Idaville の町で起こる10件の様々な事件が、夕食時の両親との会話の中や、夏休み期間中の車庫の探偵事務所から展開するエピソードを通して鮮やかに解決されていく。謎を解くのは Leroy Brown。でも、町中の人々や友人たちは彼のことを Encyclopedia と呼んでいる。「百科事典」と呼び称されるほどの博学の少年探偵が、このシリーズの主人公だ。 さて、今回 Encyclopedia が取り組む事件は、 1) The Case of the Secret Pitch:Idavilleリトル・リーグのピッチャー Flanaganは不良グループのリーダー Bugs Meanyと、お互いのバットを賭け、ある勝負に出たが…。 2) The Case of the Balloon Man:Encyclopediaの昔の同級生 Bobby Tylerが誘拐され、目撃者の通報で、移動菓子売り業の Izzy the balloon manが疑われる…。 3) The Case of the Ambushed Cowboy: Texasへの家族旅行、85年前、ポーカーの勝ち負けで反目していた相手を卑怯にも岩陰で待ち伏せしたという Jonny Kidの話をツアー・ガイドから聞かされた Encyclopediaだが…。 4) The Case of the Forgetful Sheriff:同じツアー・ガイドから今度は、銃を忘れたまま5人組の銀行強盗を追って行った Wiggins保安官が、全員を射殺した上盗まれた金貨を取り戻したのに縛り首にされたという話を聞かされたEncyclopediaは…。 5) The Case of the Hungry Hitchhiker:釣りの帰りに乗せてもらった父親(Idaville警察署長)のパトカーに、強盗犯逃走中の連絡が入った。National Highwayを追跡中、途中の交差点にいたヒッチ・ハイカーが、犯人たちはここでHighwayからCoconut Driveへ折れたと証言する…。 6) The Case of the Two-Fisted Poet:詩人気取りの Percy ArbuthnotはEncyclopediaのパートナーでボディーガードでもあるSallyを説き伏せデートに誘い、いいところを見せようとするが…。 7) The Case of the Wounded Toe:珍しい歯の収集家 Charlie Stewartは Encyclopediaと歯の収集に出かけた時にエアガンで足を撃たれてしまう。Duke Kellyが犯人だと睨んだEncyclopediaはある罠を仕掛ける…。 8) The Case of Excalibur:Woody Fanfingleに大切なペン・ナイフを盗まれた、探してくれとBugsに依頼されたEncyclopedia だが、その捜索中に「こそ泥」の疑いで捕まってしまう。さあ、どうする? 9) The Case of the Glass of Ginger Ale:盲目のバイオリニスト Rafino de Verona氏は、Glendon Symphonyのコンサート・マスターである Hans Braun氏と、お互いのストラディバリウスを賭けた密室トリックに挑み、負けてしまった。さて、どんなトリック? 10) The Case of the Stomach Puncher:Idavilleのジュニア自転車チャンプのHerb Steinが、買ったばかりの自転車を年上で横暴なBiff Loganに盗まれたと助けを求めてきたが、Biff の裏庭の帆布の下に隠されていた自転車には Herbの名前は書かれていなかった。さて、どうする Encyclopedia? の10件だ。今回も Encyclopedia Brown は難事件を手際良くスマートに解決していく。読者の我々が謎を解くには、事件の流れを失わないようによどみなく読み進みながら、同時にストーリーの細かい部分をないがしろにせず細心の注意を払っていかなければならない。速読と精読が、「車の両輪」のように同時進行で必要だ。 この第2巻も第1巻同様、面白い事件の数々だが、辛めに評価すれば、残念ながら星2つ。それは、本巻の 2)、3)、5)、6)、9)、10) が、それぞれ同著者の以前の秀作 Two-Minute Mysteries / More Two-Minute Mysteries / Still More Two-Minute Mysteries からの「焼き直し (rehash)」だからだ。事件のセティングは装いを異にしているが、謎解きが全く同じでは折角の興がそがれてしまう。よって、4/10 = 2/5 で2★。 ただし、著者の前作に馴染みのない読者諸氏にとっては、そんなことはどうでもいいので、星5つとしてもいいかも知れない。
