My favorite part was when Mr. O’Hara the drug store guy was talking to Eddie Phelan. He spins his egg so long in the egg spinning contest! I like this part because I found dialogue I think it’s cool because a lot of books don’t have dialogue and dialogue is interesting. My favorite character is Encyclopedia because he sounds like a nice guy and he solves cool mysteries. I like the black and white illustrations because you can use your mind to color them in. This series has 13 books. It is similar to the other books because there are the same characters and usually never new characters. Encyclopedia Brown reminds me of Jordan, my classmate because he’s always trying to help.
I recommend this book to ages first grade and under. I think moms and dads or teachers should explain it because it gets confusing. People who like mysteries would like this book because you can make your own solution or read them on the back! You can find them at your local library. I give this book two thumbs up and I hope you do too.
